The first half of the final season of AMC’s Mad Men comes to an abrupt close next Sunday, but fortunately the network has a promising new drama taking its place the following week.  Ahead of its official on-air premiere, AMC has made the entire first episode of Halt and Catch Fire available to watch online for free right now.  From executive producer/showrunner Jonathan Lisco (Southland), the series takes place in Texas in the early 1980s, during the rise of the PC era.  Lee Pace leads the cast as a former IBM executive who recruits an engineer (Scoot McNairy) and a volatile prodigy (Mackenzie Davis) to help him reverse engineer the new IBM PC.  The trailers have all looked great so far, and I’m really looking forward to checking out the first season.  If you want to get an early peek, now’s your chance.

Hit the jump to watch the premiere episode of Halt and Catch Fire.  The show also stars Kerry Bishe and Toby HussHalt and Catch Fire premieres on AMC Sunday, June 1st and 10pm ET/PT.

Here’s the official synopsis for Halt and Catch Fire:

“Halt and Catch Fire” is set roughly one year after IBM all but corners the market with the release of its first major product — the IBM PC. It is also the same year people realize that the IBM PC has a fatal flaw, which quickly makes personal computing anyone’s game. In this fictional drama, a former IBM executive, Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace), plans to reverse-engineer the flagship product of his former employer, and he forces his current company, Cardiff Electric, into the personal computer race. MacMillan enlists the help of Gordon Clark (Scoot McNairy), a once-great engineer who dreams of creating a revolutionary product while trying to manage his initially unsupportive wife, Donna (Kerry Bishé), and Cameron Howe (Mackenzie Davis), a volatile prodigy who puts her future in jeopardy to join MacMillan’s rogue PC project. “Halt and Catch Fire” thrives on the spirit of innovation and explores what it’s like to stand at the forefront of something truly great and world-changing and work toward it, no matter the risk.
