Mr. Robot


Television


Has anyone been watching Mr. Robot (homepage/Wikipedia/imdb) on USA Network on Wednesday nights?

As much as I was disappointed in the second season of True Detective, Mr. Robot has blown me away. I'm only through the first four episodes so far, but I've been blown away by how well written and acted it is.

I'm finally caught up through episode 8 ("wh1ter0se"). Wow, just wow. This is the best show on TV right now, and probably the best show on TV in a while.

If you're considering watching the show, definitely don't jump in at the middle; you must watch it from the beginning.

I can't wait for the penultimate episode tonight.

It's ok but often feels like a made for TV version of mature film and premium television quality. There are occasionally forced scenes to make it feel edgy that just makes it feel too intentional. However, this is a big step up for the USA network. Worth checking out, but not televisions best offering. Just my two plat.


I binged on it for three days. Great show.

Season 2 just started!


Just saw the first episode/part 1 of season 2, will see part 2 when I get back from errands this afternoon. They're not afraid to hit the ground running, and I like they are f!cking with the audience as much as they are f!cking with poor Elliot.

So far, so good. So good. I know there's a lot of dark subject matter, but do they have to have EVERYTHING in dark lighting as well? I know they're going for mood, but when florescent office light is dark, it looks fake.


I thought I went into this season expecting that literally anything could happen. However, I was definitely surprised in last night's episode by the appearance of ALF. Well played, Esmail.

Ok, so I tried watching this show. It kills me, really kills me. Aside from the fact that the social commentary is BS and an anarchists wet dream that has no basis in reality, I really don't like to look at a bunch of junkies and criminals playing "let's fail in trying to collapse the government".

Hama, are you quoting ALF?

Who or what?

"It kills me."

It might more accurately be a paraphrase of ALF. "Ha! I kill me!" was a common refrain of that Alien Life Form from 1980s TV.

Oh, before my time, I was born in '87. Seen some reruns, but not enough to get cathphrases stuck in my head.

That's cool.

I think the light situation I complained about upthread might have been done to emphasize the contrast before Elliot's "real world" and that wacked out day-glo 80s sitcom he was trapped in.

I think Mr. Robot is one of those shows where you have to be very patient sometimes.
