Mr. Robot - USA Network

Probably one of the best episodes of teleivison I've seen this year. I was gripped throughout the entire running time. I love it when the show does something a bit crazy with its format (i.e the sitcom episode from the previous season).

AFuuuuuuuccccckkkk, I do love me some single-fake goodness. God damn.

Well, that was an eerie fucking ending.

No kidding. I wasn't expecting that at all. Fantastic episode.

That scene in the corridor of Eliot knocking himself out was just awesome.



Also, that was my first time seeing the Red Wheelbarrow barbecue commercial. Damn it will make you want to put the south in your mouth!

That whole site shows a level of commitment bordering on insanity.



Speaking of crazy ... that whole bat-shit crazy Reddit theory is going to be true, isn't it. Even if it isn't, the show is trolling us into believing it is at this point.

I was so caught up in seeing Elliot try and stop the one explosion that I didn't ponder the possibility of others.



Also, nice nod to Repo Man

This show is SO damn good now that it makes me sad that its fallen off the cultural radar a bit...I guess season two was too slow for people? I can't help but feel that if some of this stuff had happened last year we'd be hearing a lot more about it...I used to hear about MR. ROBOT all the time whether I wanted to or not...now? Crickets...

Season two wasn't exactly slow, but it did fall into exactly the traps that you would worry about, chasing the same high as season one.  This year has been pretty great, though.  The first two episodes alone seemed to have more momentum than all of last year (which I struggle to recall any particulars of).

AGreat music in this episode. The score underneath the opening flashback was hauntingly beautiful.

AThere was so much dread in this episode. The knight rider theme song was the only light part to a devistating episode.

That and the attempted desert getaway.



This show needs as much Irving and Leon as it can plausibly fit in.

AI think that's the only thing this show has done that I actively disliked.

AAngela sold the everloving shit out of that scene where she kept rewinding the disaster. I had chills and a sense of hopeful dread, like...she’s losing it...but, what if they are actually going there?

Man, I want to find everyone eho complained about s2 and strap em down

AYes, that is in fact the best way to eat popcorn in the theater.

I have laughed many times at tonight's episode's movie theater shenanigans, namely the frighteningly realistic replication of a National Amusements multiplex circa 1995.



I'm amazed how well this is sticking to the promise of the first couple episodes this season. They got their mojo back and it might be their best season yet. It's fulfilled much of the FUBAR absence that Twin Peaks created when the revival ended.

Holy fuck, the music cue at the end of this! One of the best songs on the Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure soundtrack.





Great episode. Holy shit.

ASam Esmail really hates The Martian, huh?

But yeah, great episode. I don't know if I've just reset my expectations or what, but this season has been an enormous step up from last year.

Other than Twin Peaks, it may be my favorite season of TV all year. I think they learned to keep the story contained to 10 rather than 12 episodes, and the focus is significantly tighter and more straightforward, but overall, they've gone full mindfuck. Even keeping it set in 2015, it's the perfect Trump-era paranoia thriller complete with one-percent boogeymen trying to corporatize America. And the terrorist attack that happens this season is about as realistic as you'd get in portraying that kind of hysteria. Jesus Christ.



Sam Esmail deserves an Emmy solely for the way he curates the soundtrack selections: the Bill and Ted song tonight, INXS, and Robert Plant all killer tracks this season. Public Image Ltd. last year. The RIsky Business score in the first.

AI just love the love for Shallow Grave. That was an awesome movie.

AOh god yessssss, I love that song from Bill & Ted’s!!!

What a great one-off episode. The brakes needed a little pumping, and this was a stellar way to catch one’s breath and deal with the cobsequences of the last few episodes.

Trump even stole that line!

The subtle (and not so subtle) digs at Trump are so great. Add them into how good this season has been and you have some damn fine television.

Reply

Whiterose seeing a Trump speech on TV and getting the idea for using him for his own agenda is a season highlight.

Good ending, great hook for season 4 to show that shit is not gonna be easy for Elliot. Who knows if the hack was even undone?



I'd probably put this on an even scale with the first (and outstanding) season, overall.



Here's hoping 4.0 brings on more Bobby Cannavale.

AAbout damn time he came back.

Cannavale is an amazing talent and it's great to see him on this show.

AJesus Fuck, Bobby Cannavale, that’s beyond the level of The Sopranos right there.

Great ending. This entire season was on fire.
