Collateral attractions: Lee Pace in Halt and Catch Fire 3.5
I’m behind again (couldn’t get the remote control last week), so I missed episode 4 and read that synopsis and then watched episode 5 tonight. I’m going to go back and watch 4 and then rewatch this one (and try to get interested in Cameron as a character enough to follow that plotline, sigh), but I can’t help but say how much I enjoyed the plot around Joe’s strange visitor — his creative crisis and his worries — and the way Pace played it, and how he looked. I think the obvious objection is that it’s treated too trivially, particularly from the perspective of those of us who remember those years (even if Pace is a little young). Five seconds of him sobbing seem too brief. I also like the way the relationship between Joe and Ryan is being scripted.
So have some screenshots.
And just for random pleasure, a cap of Lee Pace talking about the scene with his hands. Sigh.
