'Halt And Catch Fire' Recap: 'Up Helly Aa'

"Gem and Loan" does away with this entirely. That's a wonderful thing, because "Gem and Loan" is easily the strongest episode so far this season.

Here, the family schtick and the celebrity cover-up schtick are lumped into the same category. Bridget is a bright student, so much so that she's eligible for a powerfully ritzy private school. Unfortunately for her, it's also the priva...

We're not sure what it is, exactly, but it's unbecoming. Check out another look at Zoe's 'T' dress and the rest of this week's fa...
