Blake Tyers/AMC


It’s approximately 7 a.m. in Los Angeles, California. You’re still in bed, working on your laptop, drinking a kale-date-almond smoothie and making Internet dreams happen on the pop culture blog you edit. Suddenly, a familiar tritone bing chimes from your iPhone on the bedside table.

You are beginning to feel all the telltale signs of entertainment-related euphoria: increased heart rate, heightened emotions, a sudden need to type in all caps all the time. But you are also a professional and realize you need to verify this so-far-unsourced report.

Are you sure you want to do that? You will be emailing several of your coworkers who do not care about the fate of the television series Halt and Catch Fire, and a few, including your boss, who have been actively, publicly rooting against it.

The email has been sent.
