Mr. Robot

Recommended Posts

That was a pretty damn good season opener. I really love that television has come around to the idea of the 3-5 season drama. Lends to more immediacy as well less chance of going out on a weak note. Looking forward to seeing how they tie this one up.

Guess I’m the only one who thought it was kinda meh. The Angela thing was telegraphed pretty quickly and not much else happened, just a lot of emoting.

I’m glad this is the last season, this is not the type of story that can go on for 7-8 years.

I was thinking the last season ended with Angela getting murked and the whole "need to send Elliot a message". Then again, been too long of a gap for me to be sure but seems like I saw those scenes before.

I love the show, so thanks for the head's up that it was back on.

 

The all powerful "everywhereness" of the Dark Army gets to me sometimes, but I try to just accept it as the world I have to live in to enjoy the show.

I watched the first episode of this season but haven’t watched the rest. Has it jumped the shark? I have other stuff I can watch if MR has lost its edge.

It’s still really good but I feel like it’s hard to talk about episode by episode.

It feels like we’re watching a 10 hour movie chopped up.

I feel like this season will be better as a binge.

How many episodes is this season?  And they’re not doing some Bullshit where they want 10 months and then release the last 6 episodes but still call it season 4, are they?

Wikipedia reports 13 episodes which would make it their longest season.

I mean, the Santa guy who she drives upstate felt like she was in kind of a Jam.  Their mutual situation being kind of a Rec, despite being near some Parks. I dunno.

I don't remember exactly when I checked out on this show because I liked it. Missed a few episodes, then the season opener, that was last season. I'd be completely lost trying to get back in.

Was Tyrell actually shot or did he rub some of the other guys blood on him as an excuse to get away from Eliot?

With the way the episode ended, I would consider it extremely cheap writing if tyrell isn't dead. 

 

Also, what a waste of tyrell.

I thought he discovered the briefcase of Marcellus Wallace

That's awesome.  I gotta go back and see if you can see her during the chase into the Park.

Such a good show on so many levels. Haven’t loved this season so far as much but still great. I know Elliot isn’t very athletic but I’ve never seen acting cops look like they are running so slow in a shot. I wonder if Vegas has any lines on who will die/survive by the end of the season. I’d say it’s looking grim for most of the big players but there’s no way they all go out.

Thought that scene at the table was amazing acting by the guy-the lil bitch story. Joey badass also has to end up playing a bigger role when it’s all said and done-freelancer or not. 

I really like Vera, he's a great character, but I hate that he had to fuck with my girl Krista.

Hasn't all the voice over this season been Mr. Robot (no Elliott)?

Damn, that scene with the bank chick was incredibly fucked up and disturbing.

That’s what I love about this show. Good people do bad things and bad people do good things.

As a person in recovery myself, that scene hit close to home. Gave myself a lot of interesting thoughts as I watched that situation. Definitely would be one of the most brutal things you could do to an addict. Made me love and appreciate the show that much more.

I didn’t realize until listening to a podcast about the show that this last episode had only two lines of dialogue.

It opened with Darlene telling Elliot “It’s cool, we don’t need to talk.” and ends with Vera telling Krista “It’s time we talked.”

And is this the first episode without an appearance from Mr. Robot? I don’t remember him in any scenes.

It was such an engrossing and tense episode I didn’t even notice that no one was talking - everyone communicated by text and scenes were edited so that we joined right after or right before characters would speak to each other.

Sam Esmail is up there with Vince Gilligan as the best show runners doing TV right now. Can’t wait to see what he does after Mr. Robot is done.

Well, that was a heavy episode.

Rami Malek and Gloria Reuben need to submit this episode to the Emmys - they were both amazing.

So, now that Elliot knows the truth, is Mr. Robot gone for good? And it was hinted at very early in the season that there could be a third personality - was that just hinting that Mr. Robot was a different persona in Elliot’s childhood?

Did Darlene know about the abuse? Angela?

Lots of answers tonight that beget more questions. I’m going to miss this show.

Elliot Villar was the star of this episode imo.

wow. I can't remember anything quite like that. Breaking bad is the only series I can think of that is like this in the differences in the episodes from week to week.
