New AMC Series Orders: The Spies of George Washington and the 1980s Computer Industry
So AMC is hitting the historical fiction bandwagon now, with two new series it has picked up. One is set in the computer industry of Texas during the eighties, and is called "Halt & Catch Fire," which isn't a title that exactly screams Skynet. Plus, it sounds less interesting than the other one (entitled "Turn") which is set during the Revolutionary War and focuses on George Washington's stable of spies. The series is based on the book Washington's Spies by Alexander Rose, and I'm trying really hard to separate this in my mind from trailers for Assassin's Creed III and failing miserably. And even when I succeed, I think of that Bruce Campbell series from the nineties.
Now when I post articles like this, in which there is no television show yet to have any sort of actual picture of, I am left with the quandary of what to use as a header picture. Most normal writers just go with some famous picture of George Washington. I find that practice dull, and I value the entertainment that you derive from a picture worth looking at. So I start google image searching. Usually tacking "sexy" on to whatever the trade news topic is gets some clever results, but the results are uninspiring for Washington. Tacking on "lightsaber" is a bit better, and "dinosaur" is downright lovely. Here are your alternate header pictures for the day, each of which I am sure will be represented in a future episode of this new television show:
