Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

And the speech the head of ecorp gave at the beginning was just so alpha male. He said he was the most powerful man in every room in the world except two, I'm assuming he meant the oval office and the Chinese equivalent?

And Johanna is just too hot. Angela isn't bad either and Darlene acts like she would be a great lay.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

FBI lady seems way too coldblooded to leave Darlene alone if she still had any chance of running. Though I hope she's OK and escapes in the chaos, Darlene is way too good of a character to kill off/have sit rot in jail.

SO WHO WAS PHONE? CTO guy? Guy that is ****ing Tyrell's wife? Law enforcement?

The way it was cut the implication was that Darlene or some other fsociety person is the caller, but that doesn't make a lot of sense.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Why does everyone assume Price is talking about Elliot in his most powerful Person in the room spiel?

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

there are two key characters with multiple personalities, would make sense given the way he corrected himself. it's not like a guy like price would accidentally forget one of the two other people in the world more powerful than him.

white rose is more likely given how we have seen them interact.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

What??

What makes you think Price even knows who Mr. Robot is AND has been in the same room as him?

There is nothing in Price's speech that leads one to think he means Elliott or even White Rose? Did you see how he reacted to White Rose in the umbrella scene? And you think Price means that WR is more powerful than him. It may be true, but no way he's admitting it.

Price is simply pontificating and allowing that there are possibly more powerful men than him. He's being falsely modest, but it is not beyond the realm of possibility that Price has been in rooms with Presidents and Kings of Industry.

Like many Breaking Bad situations, even the writers don't know who the character is referring to yet.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Terrible viz fx (obviously not supposed to be shown that size), but it definitely looks like Darlene did not get hit (the red explosion is in between her and what's his face). In real life she probably would have been killed by the glass (at the very least been seriously injured by it), but it seems there's an opening for her not to be dead (though I think she should be).

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

He was not referring to actual people I think, and even if he was it was just a speech it wont come come up again who those 1 or 2 people are.

He meant that he still is in some situations (=rooms) where he isn't the one making the final decision, and he doesn't like that. He wants to be so dominant that in every situation he is in full control.

I've given up trying to explain basic things to people that can't even pay attention watching a TV show or use common sense logic.

Imagine if we lived in a world where people recognized the potential danger of large expanses of glass and made them in a way that eliminated that threat.

I thought it was a flashback because the last time we saw Colby, he was arrested (you'll have to forgive me for not remembering everything about what happened with him in the past 13 months since his last appearance in the show). I certainly didn't think he would be out of prison writing a book people would be interested in in the midst of a massive global financial crisis. I also wouldn't think that Price would have even the remotest bit of interest meeting with him. But this show loves to put stupid stuff in for no reason other than to let someone pontificate. So, whatever, my mistake I guess for not understanding how that meeting could even be plausible in the real world.

And about the glass, nice job from the peanut gallery using real life vs. what happened in the actual, you know, show visual effect. Giant shards of glass came crashing down inside the restaurant based on how they did it. Who gives a flying f*** if glass is protected in real life, when you can look at the actual shot and see what it looked like? Hint, a jagged what looked like about 3 foot piece of glass actually fell directly on to Darlene. Next time, actually look at the shot before spouting off the trolling bullsh*t typically found here. And yes I said real life, I don't care.
