I enjoyed Season 1 of Fight Club the TV show but man was it heavy-handed

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

I thought this season was a masterpiece.

This finale was very good.

I wish there was a solid theory out there about what happened to Tyrell so that I don't have to wait a year to find out.

Last song montage by Alabama Shakes "Sound & Color" was awesome.

And who wears Prada? The Devil. That might be foreshadowing where Angela's character arc is going next season.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

They were kinda making the main Evil Corp guy out to be the Devil too, saying he was glad the guy was dead and then sitting by the flames at the last.

Maybe Tyrell altered the hack somehow in a way that benefits him or evil-corp, or gave him leverage over evil-corp to bring him back in or w/e, and he is now in some remote data center handling w/e.

I think it's part of the unreliable narrator. Elliott doesn't know what's going on, so we don't always get to know what's going on.

Based on the popcorn scene from ep 9, I think it's very possible that Tyrell is dead.

Unreliable = psycho

The view from inside his mind is very unsettling now I know why people need drugs.

This Show will be big with the stoner crowd once they catch on.

The finale on a big movie screen would have been way more powerful - Kubrick like.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

It sure looks like Tyrell is dead, but with this show he easily might not be. I hope he isn't. That scene with Mrs. Tyrell and Elliot on the sidewalk was bone-chilling.

These type of guys think irrationally and make judgement leaps. He might have inadvertently tipped off a law enforcement character that will be introduced next year.

The dog is traceable now Elliot is traceable. Even brilliant hackers make mistakes.

From the look on Elliott's face it looked like he thought Terrell was the one behind the mask of the last fsociety speech.

Andrew,

Na he didn't put together the fsociety connection. He said that the only way they would get to any real evidence of Eliot's hacks is if Estonia would fall apart, which is happening.

Tyrell is going to tell the e-corp guy that fired him how to unencrypt everything. Good plan to land CFO imo

That was my thought too, that he has the key to decrypt the data and will obviously use that for leverage. I feel like getting CFO is out of the question though, what they've done is obviously very, very, very illegal, and it's so big that getting a mere CFO position wouldn't be worth it.

You have to figure that the wife is pulling the strings big time too. The quote from the "previously on..." clip where she said "if you want to stay part of this family you'll fix this". The conversation with Elliot was some insane television. I can't think of any time a secondary character has been in the same league as this lady. Perfect casting + acting + writing ftw
