Watch: 'Halt and Catch Fire' Premiere Brings to Life the Chaos That Created the Internet

AMC has announced the premiere date season two premiere of “Halt and Catch Fire,” which will pick up in early 1985 as Cameron (Mackenzie Davis) and Donna’s (Kerry Bishé) try to manage the chaos of their start-up, born from that most revolutionary of ideas — computers that are able to talk to each other, all around the world. 
In the above clip, Donna makes her way through the chaos of Mutiny in one long masterful tracking shot that reveals the tension of the new office, where fights break out over issues like the rendering of colors in a backgammon game. It should be interesting to see how Cameron and Donna’s company evolves from its initial messiness.
“Halt and Catch Fire” also stars Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy and Toby Huss. The series returns to AMC for a second season Sunday, May 31.
