“Halt and Catch Fire: The Complete First Season” is distributed to us viewers by Anchor Entertainment. The show stars Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Davis, Kerry Bishé and Toby Huss. The second season comes this summer to AMC. The home release comes as a three-disc set with all 10 episodes of the series that, as the synopsis states, “presents a fictionalized account of the early days of the personal computer creation and the tech heads who would soon create a revolution.” Tons of bonus features can be expected, which will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at how the series was made.

Speaking of bonus features, take a look at three clips from the bonus features that give fans a look at the amount of work it took to recreate a decade gone by. “Setting The Fire–Research” features Bishé and Davis discussing how being nerdy can be sexy. “Remaking the ’80s” features the cast and creators discuss how they recreated the ’80s Dallas tech scene, and “Setting The Fire — Easter Eggs” features technical consultant Carl Ledbetter, who talks about the many “Easter eggs” that can be found within the series and reference real events.
