When Halt and Catch Fire debuted, I watched the premiere three times in two days. (I also gave it a good review in PopMatters.) When I think about why I was so immediately drawn to it, I think of this pillow, which I helpfully circled in red in the below screengrab.
It’s a dark object in a dark image, to be sure. But, even though it was hard to see, I recognized it. My family had the same thing, in blanket form.
As should be obvious from the baby photo above, I am a child of the ’80s. But, when you ask me what I remember about the ’80s, I’ll tell you about Cabbage Patch Kids and Alf, but I would never say weird, brown-and-white crocheted blankets and pillows.
