Mr. Robot Season 2: Not quite clicking like it used to

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the first half of Mr. Robot season 2…

An erratic viewing schedule on my end hasn’t helped but, while Mr. Robot‘s creativity is still there in season two, my investment in it hasn’t been. As the last person who wanted to feel that way after season one, an attempt to divulge why at the halfway point.

 

Creator, Sam Esmail, directs every episode this year and the visuals continue to be stunning—multiple Elliot’s walking, then skipping, across the screen, when he takes too much Adderall, just one example of a scene elevated by Esmail’s framing and cuts.

New characters have merged in effortlessly. If I knew anything about Seinfeld, tearing apart the specific episodes Joey Bada$$’ Leon references (for the very reason that Elliot deems them unimportant white noise) would be a blast.

The show continues to sport some of the best female roles on TV, »

‘Mr. Robot’ Recap: Tensions Rise in an Unusual Hour

24 August 2016 8:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Do not read on unless you have seen “eps2.6_succ3ss0r.p12,” the eighth episode of the second season of “Mr. Robot.”

I wrote a piece earlier today on “Mr. Robot” (and “UnReal”) and the bumpy second seasons both have had. But I also wanted to offer a few thoughts on tonight’s episode, which, like last week’s installment, was generally very strong. Last week, we essentially got two episodes in one, a completely bonkers (yet wonderfully disturbing) sitcom, and a sleek heist thriller.

This week, it was “All About the Scooby Gang,” or a depiction of the worsening situation members of fsociety are enduring in the wake of the E Corp hack, plus we got updates on Angela and the indomitable Agent Dom Dipierro. There was no Elliot at all; no voiceovers and no delusions. As a change of pace and a chance to fill out some of the show’s most frequent recurring »

Review: How does 'Mr. Robot' get through an entire episode without Elliot?

24 August 2016 8:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Mr. Robot coming up just as soon as I create an Angelfire fan page... "I didn't know I could do that." -Darlene A year ago, an episode like "Successor" — in which Elliot is entirely absent, along with his eponymous alter ego, while the focus is almost entirely on Darlene and her remaining comrades — would have been unthinkable. In season 1, Elliot was the show, and vice versa, and most of fsociety barely registered as more than vague shapes lingering on the edge of the frame (which, given the framing of Mr. Robot, rendered them particularly obscure). At this stage of season 2, though, it mostly works. It's not even that Mobley or Trenton or Cisco have transformed into vivid and exciting characters (though we're at least at the point where I remember their names), but that after spending so much time this summer inside Elliot's head — up to »

17 Lessons from '80s Movies to Take Back to School

23 August 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The films of the 1980s were ripe with electric guitars, new wave style and heavy-handed moralizing. Lessons were learned, obstacles surmounted, montages cut and forced upon audiences with reckless abandon. We laughed, we loved and most importantly, we learned. What did we learn? Well, with the cyclical return to school dovetailing ever so neatly with the recent wave of '80s nostalgia sparked by Stranger Things, we're taking a look at some life lessons a returning student can glean from the films of the 1980s. 1.

‘Mr. Robot’: Should Its Baffling Twists Affect Its Emmys Chances?

18 August 2016 12:27 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Spoilers for “Mr. Robot” through Season 2, Episode 7, “eps2.5_h4ndshake.sme,” below. (Full review here.)]

One of the very first people to guess the biggest twist of “Mr. Robot” Season 1 was Christian Slater. In an interview with IndieWire last year, the Golden Globe-winning star of USA’s challenging hacker drama said that after reading the pilot script, “I just had a funny sense — I kind of went back and forth, like, ‘Could this…Could they do this?’ That would be interesting…   I was very happy that I’d picked up on it and that [creator Sam Esmail] and I were on the same page from day one.”

Of course, once the first season premiered, Slater wasn’t the only one who had an inkling that something might be up with his mysterious hacker persona, whose scenes often had us questioning what was real. For questioning reality has always been a major theme of the show, since so much of it is told through the point of view of »

Emmy Awards: There’s Plenty of Drama in the Drama Race

18 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When did drama become the underdog?

Traditionally the most prestigious category at the Emmys, somewhere along the line, drama lost a bit of heat.

The culprit: Those clever folks over at Team Comedy, who stole the spotlight thanks to the emergence of new bold, risk-taking, subversive voices (“Master of None,” “Black-ish”).

Also guilty of a bit of momentum theft: Team Limited Series. It’s hard to compete with the star power lured by the promise of 10-and-out (“The People v. O.J. Simpson,” “The Night Manager”). No series commitment necessary.

But don’t sell drama short. Even in the post “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad” era, there’s still plenty of high-quality drama being made on television. From big-budget battles to intricate spy craft to emotional wallops, the seven drama contenders offer powerful storytelling, compelling narratives, stellar acting — and yes, even a few laughs.

Witness the chorus of cheers when FX’s “The Americans” finally earned its much deserved »

'Mr. Robot' Recap: Check and Mate

18 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Oh hey, so Elliot is in prison. Has been this whole season. Hands up if you didn't see that twist coming from a mile away. No? No one? Mr. Robot isn't usually the kind of show that underestimates the intelligence of its audience. It did last night though, in a big way — and it was smug about it to boot. Not cool, Sam Esmail & Co. Not cool.

We've been watching the show's antisocial antihero in his curiously ordered routine for a while now, supposedly cooling his heels at his mom's »

You used to be cool, you used to be cool, you used to be cool.

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes and clips and puts it all in perspective. Christian Slater has always been cool. As a kid, I totally looked up to him. I first saw him in Heathers, where he blew me away as a teenage Jack Nicholson. Everyone had a Jack Nicholson imitation back then, but only Christian Slater embodied his rebellious spirit (and, yes, mimicking his nasally, wise ass voice). He was the smarmiest teenager in school cafeteria history. When Pump Up the Volume came out, I was a high school student, and I didn't buy any of what the movie was selling. Even then, I could hear Hollywood execs saying, "This is what the kids, like, right? Cool disc jockeys!" But Christian Slater was charismatic enough to make it work. But then came one of the coolest movies ever made, True Romance, solidifying »

From ‘Mr. Robot’ to ‘Silicon Valley’: Tech Comes of Age on TV

17 August 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the premiere episode of “Silicon Valley,” HBO’s rambunctious sitcom set in the world of high-tech startups, smug entrepreneur Erlich Bachman boasts in a pitch meeting that he’s memorized hexadecimal multiplication tables.

“Ask me what nine times F is. It’s fleventy-five!” says Erlich. Immediately after it aired, geeks took to Twitter to complain: The show’s writers got it wrong. (The answer is actually 0x87, not 0xF5 as Erlich’s goofy, made-up response implied.)

Mike Judge, “Silicon Valley” co-creator and showrunner, felt compelled to point out in a tweet that it was a joke — in the same scene, Erlich also mistakenly claims Campbell Soup Co. is based in Paris, Texas. “I don’t mind people being nitpicky. It’s kind of fun,” says Judge. Adds writer-producer Alec Berg, “We know every shot is going to be scrutinized, but that’s great because it means people love the show.”

Watch out, Evil Corp, USA has just renewed ‘Mr. Robot’ for Season 3

16 August 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Keyboards at the ready, fsociety. Enter. USA Network just announced their Emmy-nominated Mr. Robot is moving ahead for Season 3. Mr. Robot is one of the most intense television shows I've ever watched and I'm thrilled we're going to get another season of Elliot's bizarre journey. Creator Sam Esmail is, and I don't say this lightly, a genius. His cast of Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Carly Chaikin, Portia Doubleday, Martin Wallström, and Stephanie Corneliussen are indescribably good. "Being the home studio for this wonderful, completely original show is an exhilarating experience. Sam and company just keep taking it to another level,” said Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and President, Universal Cable Productions. Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment added, “We couldn’t be more proud of Mr. Robot, a series that has pushed boundaries, captured the cultural zeitgeist, and been honored as one of the best dramas on television. »

Mr Robot renewed for season 3

16 August 2016 9:36 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Aug 16, 2016

The USA Network has renewed Mr Robot, currently airing season 2, for a third run...

If you've been wondering whether Mr Robot's wildly ambitious second season might prove too outre for its home channel, the USA Network, worry not. Sam Esmail's bold, paranoid tech-drama has been renewed for a third season.

The celebratory critical response to the show, which picked up multiple Emmy nominations earlier this year, is likely more responsible for the renewal than its viewer figures. Like AMC's Mad Men, this one's a prestige buy for its network, popular with critics if not a huge ratings-pull.

For anyone yet to have the pleasure, Mr Robot is a twisted psychological drama centring on Rami Malek's luminously strange cyber-hacker Elliot Alderson and his relationship with Christian Slater's mysterious eponymous character.

The third run of the acclaimed show will air in 2017.
