Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Yeah things happening at random is so unrealistic. Especially when mental illness is involved.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

It's not about realism. it's about lazy writing

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

It showed the risk of dealing with Mr. Robot, that this could happen at any time.

It showed that they needed to move the plot forward.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Pay more attention. It didn't happen at random.

There's a theory that Darlene is gonna either die in a plane crash, or fake her death in a plane crash. A lot of plane imagery throughout the show with her. Not sure I buy it though.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

How the hell is Tyrell threatening Mr. Robot to cut him out and Mr. Robot then freaking out and attacking Tyrell random?

Also, why does it matter if it's random or not? Elliott is mentally ill, do you need his mental ilness to be structured? Have you ever seen another show or movie including mental illness? Did those satisfy you? What did you think of Split?

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Either you are being intentionally vague or I've missunderstood you.

In both cases you're kind of being an ******* not just immediately explaining what you mean. So either give a clear explanation or lets just stop this conversation. Your pick .

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Great continuous appearing action work along with an overhead interior shot...


On the post-show Esmail said the show has been foreshadowing a big twist but he doesn't think the viewers have picked up on it. Ideas?

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Yeah, that statement did nothing but build expectations imo

In one breath, he says both that he's surprised it hasnt been figured out and that it had sort of been figured out.

All of reddit has been mourning the impending death of Darlene for a few weeks now.

Neither do I but I still really enjoyed it. Inexplicable really so I won't try.

I really enjoyed that episode, but for the first time really in any season I'm kinda ****ing lost in terms of the big picture.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

The question is whether Esmail even tries to pull it all together in the end for a conclusion that's both satisfying and coherent. I think it would be a lot safer to not try.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

The only thing I will be mad at is if they dont pay off what WR is "working on" in the plant.
And since it was in the first shot of the season, I'm confident they will do that.
Hopefully in a satisfying way, but that is going to be hard to do. based on all of the build-up

Four episodes is plenty of time to clarify the miscellaneous parts of the plan.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Loved how the episode played out

I was really bummed that they were taking the plot in a really save direction, with the explosion not happening and basicly the plot resetting to beginning of S3.

we just blew up all the other E Corp buildings lel
