    loved this episode, this show is really becoming something

    although i do notice that the show does come across as kind of derivative at times. it takes a lot of ideas from other films and shows like Fight Club (ofc), American Psycho (Tyrell) and even DBZ with that scene with the CTO.



    "that's the look"

    I know we do not have too many episode by episode threads for TV shows around here, and frankly I quite like the start of and end of series approaches to discussion, but I will continue with this.

    A couple of episodes ago I made a comment about filler, this was not that but I am not sure it was wall to wall content either. Had a tiny bit of character building which was nice but for a show with 12 episodes (unless they actually managed to embrace the second series being assured which is great to see if so) the taking the time to smell the roses thing is cause to raise an eyebrow.

    what the fuck :mellow:

    All I have to say is that the next episode better have a damn good explanation... because this is on the verge of ridiculous.

    Serious opinion: This show is excellent, and while I realize that the show may have been building up to this reveal, it kind of made me angry? I don't really know how to explain it, but I think maybe the show's creators are going overboard with Elliot's insanity, and ultimately reducing the amount of actual substance in the TV show. Sure, fans can call everything in the show a figment of Elliot's imagination because they read it on IMDB, but I don't see how that makes the show any better/worse. This episode was great up until the end which boiled down to a classic annoying cliffhanger.

    First couple of episodes really had me hooked. I was like "alas, a show that is saying something!"
    And then it turned psycho-sexual and homo-erotic just like every other show.

    Turns out Humans is fantastic though!!!

    Of all the stuff to have happened thus far this was the ridiculous episode?

    Anyway it has still yet to reach the heights of the first episode for me but I am not as concerned as I was.

    In one word this episode was: Amazing.

    The IMDb boards are on fire for Mr. Robot and where I talk about it too. :lol:

    Well, people can now finally stop asking on IMDb who/what Mr. Robot is as this episode has covered it. Just one more to go.

    I'm loving this show. Brilliant.

    Series finale next week. Wonder what will happen.

    I quite liked this episode though I am back to the TV designed for binge watching thing. I imagine a three parter between this and next week's episode will be great.

    I read on IMDb that an Australian aired version of Mr. Robot has all the f-bombs uncensored but meh, it's not like it'd make the show any better than it already is. I'll definitely rewatch it when it comes out on Blu-ray or Netflix.

    So they delayed the finale of Mr. Robot tonight due to similarities to the shootings in Virginia. Guess I'll be hanging on this cliff for another week.

    Yeah dude, I just read that they delayed the episode due to the Virginia Shooting. Like what the fuck, I get it, people died but come on don't delay a show because of it. Shootings happen because stupid people have access to guns.

    I was so anxious to watch Mr. Robot this week. :(

    It's not just because of the shooting-- the finale reportedly had similarities to the events of the shooting itself and it would be distasteful to air it.

    This is not the first time such a thing has happened, however I have never quite figured out why it would be considered distasteful.

    The Americans are way too overly sensitive.

    One thing that boggles my mind is how they're OK with violence but sex is a no-no. Typical Grade A bullshit.

    First impression of the last episode. WTF! Wiki says there will be a second series hope the viewers get some answers if that's true. This thing is like a cross between fight club, Jacobs ladder and twin peaks. I love all the technical stuff about the series but where the hell is all of it going. Probably just miffed with the cliffhanger its left.

    Not that I know anything about the events that saw this postponed but was this episode trimmed or something?

    Anyway some great cinematography. I am going to have to watch it again to figure out how they did some of that.

    Content wise I am wary of timeskip techniques in much the same way I am with amnesia ones, though perhaps not the same extent. This pulled it off though.

    Also the sidestory with his psychologist... something did not sit right there with me.

    I shall have to sit and have a think though before I go further.

    Is anyone still watching the show? If so, what do you think of the second season so far?
