Mr. Robot – 307 – eps3.6_fredrick+tanya.chk

Jim and A.Ron agree that this latest episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “Eps3.6fredrick&tanya.chk”, was pretty good, but on little else beyond that.  We are in violent disagreement over the direction of Angela and Tyrell, but that just makes for an exciting podcast where naked hostility seems to be lying in wait around every corner.  But whether or not you think Tyrell is an actual human or if Angela is a horrifying baby person suddenly, there is a lot to talk about and discuss.  White Rose dunks on Phillip, Leon blazes up to Knight Rider,  Irving tells Mr. Robot how it is, beautifully filmed desert vistas that would bring a tear to even Vince Gilligan’s eye, and we get closure on Trenton and Mobley.  All great stuff, and it puts the show in fine shape as it heads into the seasons final act.  See you next week!

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.
