Episode 035 – Halt and Catch Fire 2.0 w/ Christina Stewart


Alva and Meredith weren’t joking when they said that they had enough material for a second episode about AMC’s criminally underrated Halt and Catch Fire. Christina “Steenz” Stewart (@oheysteenz), artist of the webcomic Archival Quality (http://archivalcomic.com/) and Nicole, Chibi Ronan’s babysitter, joined them for a spirited discussion about their hopes and dreams for season 2 (which begins on May 31), the show’s handling of queerness, whether or not it’s possible to humanize Joe MacMillan in a way that makes sense to the story so far, and Donna. So much Donna. So. Much. Donna. Jake sat out this episode, partly because he still hasn’t seen it yet and partly because he doesn’t want a horrible, screeching harpy to flutter notes copied from the DSM-5 in his face. That’s how you get papercuts.
