Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Sam Esmail has multiple writers working with him, and it isn't an anthology, so the concerns about TD are a little off base. If this season maintains the same intensity, this will arguably be the best drama on TV.

I also read an interview with him where he talked about how he has the whole 4-5 season story mapped out beforehand. I have high hopes.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

I am rewatching S1, 8 eps in. The show is extremely rewatchable, haven't been bored a second. A lot of things also make more sense if you watch them with knowing all the twists. I weirdly enough even liked the episodes with Elliott tripping because it was so well done.

The only thing that doesn't really make sense to me is the plotline with the music cd malware. It seems unnecessary and is also pretty unrealistic. So you work for a cyber security firm and you get donked by a stupid trap. Seems like you'd know exactly who to consult to resolve the situation optimally.

But they just decide to follow instructions without much doubt. It would've been fine if the ask was low, but they had to commit a crime which could send them to prison for years and ruin them forever if they somehow get implicated.

And all that for a couple of nudes and financial information? It seemed out of place and unnecessary, they could've gone so many other ways to establish the dark army hacking Allsafe. It is implied slightly that Ashley's family has something to hide but nothing significant enough for it to make sense.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

It's Tyrell knocking on Elliot's door at the end of season 1 right?

If anybody wants to get caught up or rewatch in preparation for the new season, season 1 is streaming on Amazon Prime.

Stumbled onto this show after hbo series finales and will definitely be excited for s2. Thought the music was really good and will be rewatching s1 with the gf and adding everything to the music library.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Somewhat anti-climatic way of dealing with the cliffhanger imo. I guess it's only part 1 of 2 and obviously this show earned a lot of benefit of the doubt.

I won't put anything spoiler boxes before the real airdate, these are really nitty things,

This is one of those fan theories that is so good that they should consider reshoots to do this instead of their actual plan, if it's not true.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

The second half of the premiere really made up for the weakness of the first half but still how do you have a season finale start in media res, end that finale with a cliffhanger, and STILL never get around to explaining it?

This Show follows no rules of TV. Slow start big finish. Sad to see that character go if that is reality. Total surprise.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

In the after show all the actors gave one word to describe their characters path forward. Remi malek said "committed" and the rest of the cast kinda inside joke chuckled at that. Pretty much sold he's currently in a mental health facility type thing and what we're seeing is a mental construct.

Doesn't seem all that "whoah" - the oddities of his living situation and daily routine are weird enough that the show is clearly hiding something. But I did just watch the two parts at once so maybe that puts it together better.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

How was that theory already up on reddit before the episode even aired yesterday? Seems like that is coming from someone with more access than an average viewer.

So is the dude that Tyrell's wife is banging the same one that Darlene was shown with out on the balcony last season? Do we know who that guy is, and am I just really bad at recognizing faces?

Ah, that makes sense.

I like the "committed" theory. Not sure how the dude's dog fits in with that, but it wouldn't be the biggest hallucination he's had.
