Mr. Robot – 306 – eps3.5_kill-pr0cess.inc

Jim and A.Ron are delighted with another suspenseful, well crafted episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.5_kill-process.inc”.  Great dialog, great, inventive action, solid acting and exceptional editing come together in one very satisfying package.  We’re mid-season and these episodes feel like season finales!  What will be coming in the weeks ahead?!  Join us again next week to find out!

Mr. Robot – 305 – eps3.4_runtime-err0r.r00

Jim and A.Ron were blown away by the latest real time “oner” episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.4_runtime-err0r.r00”.  We think the technique was employed skillfully here, increasing the drama, tension, and immediacy.  We’re also left with a lot of questions regarding the state of Stage 2, Angela’s relative hacking skills, the nature of Mr. Robot’s relationship with Elliot, and we’d love to know exactly what Darlene is up to, and how much of her plan the FBI has signed off on.  More answers surely to come, but this was a fun ride! 

Mr. Robot – 302 – eps3.1_undo.gz

A.Ron and Jim have seen the latest episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.1_undo.gz”, and after downing some Zoloft, feel prepared to discuss it.  Topics include A.Ron’s new TOTTDAB scale, the stunning development with Joanna, the identity of the f-society faker, Mr. Robot’s birthday, the latest installment of the ARG, feedback, and much more!

Mr. Robot – 301 – eps3.0_power-saver-mode.h

Jim and A.Ron discuss the premier of season 3 of USA’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.0_power-saver-mode.h”.  We’re glad to see Mr. Robot return with an intriguing, plot forwarding episode that is a pleasure to watch.  We really enjoyed newcomer Bobby Canavale’s turn as the sleazy fixer Irving, we’re loving the more bold hints of sci-fi wackadoo stuff to come, and the new relationships between Mr. Robot, Eliot, Angela and Darlene.  Can’t wait for more, and to find out what everyone else thinks!

Mr. Robot – Season 2 Wrapup

Jim and A.Ron sign off for 2016 on Mr. Robot, before turning our attention to Westworld, Halt and Catch Fire, and American Horror Story. But first we have to wrap things up with some final thoughts and a bunch of new listener theories and analysis. Hope to see you around on some of our current and future endeavors, but if not, we’ll be back next year for season three!

Mr. Robot – 212 – eps2.9_pyth0n-pt2.p7z

Jim and A.Ron have decided that USA’s Mr. Robot has done enough in “eps2.9_pyth0n-pt2.p7z”, to get us re-invested and excited for the potential of the next season. It’s not been a prefect season, and some of Esmail’s high risk, experimental approaches haven’t always gone as smoothly as we’d have liked, but at the end of the day, the fact that there is nothing else like it on television mitigates a lot of the frustration we’ve felt over the show’s pacing and plodding mysteries. What did you think? We consider a bunch of feedback for this week’s episode on the show, but next week we’ll be back for a final wrap up episode where we get to process this season and look ahead to the next one.

Mr. Robot – 211 – eps2.9_pyth0n-pt1.p7z

Jim’s getting impatient with Mr. Robot’s stubborn refusal to give him answers, and found the multiplication of questions in this latest episode maddening. A.Ron is just excited to get to the robots, time travel, and bullet time fueled kung fu fighting. Who’s right? Will Mr. Robot satisfy our need to know in the final episode, or will it punt all substantial questions and resolution of plot lines until next season? See you next week to find out!
