Sean O’Neal says both Halt and Catch Fire and Six Feet Under “were portraits of perpetually uncertain, unsatisfied people, always believing that their next big, life-changing leap will finally be the thing to make them feel whole. Both shows were about how their search for that fulfillment causes them to shut out and repeatedly hurt the ones they love. And both were dramas that overcame their somewhat-gimmicky premises—a family who lives in a funeral home; a mysterious yuppie helping geeks build a computer—to find their greatest resonance in small, quietly devastating, human interactions.”

Halt and Catch Fire may have been the most Gen-X show on recent television
The AMC series was ultimately about Baby Boomers passing the baton to Generation X, says Jen Chaney. “From a nostalgic point of view, Halt and Catch Fire aimed right for the Gen-X sweet spot, setting its action between 1983 and 1994, and fully capturing the vibe in its spot-on production design, costume design, and especially its music choices, which were often wonderfully surprising,” she says, adding: “Halt and Catch Fire doesn’t just ‘get’ the ’80s and ’90s, it immerses the viewer in those time periods.”
