Pilot Review: Halt and Catch Fire

Halt and Catch Fire (Sundays at 10:00 on AMC; Premieres June 1)

I'm hard pressed to think of something I'd rather watch a show about less than someone programming and reverse engineering a computer.

It's a well-acted and directed show, but it's just hard to care about something so esoteric.
