‘Mr. Robot’ Star Portia Doubleday on Angela’s Motives, Her Love for Elliot, and What’s Ahead for Season 3

23 September 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched the Season 2 finale of “Mr. Robot.”

Angela (Portia Doubleday) has been on quite the journey in the second season of USA’s hit “Mr. Robot.” After her Prada moment in the first season finale, she went ever deeper into Evil Corp. She literally dined with the devil, Phillip Price (Michael Cristofer). She tried to play hacker and got caught by Dom (Grace Gummer). And then she came face-to-face with Whiterose herself (B.D. Wong), who somehow convinced her to abandon her mission with those Washington Township documents.

Angela was barely seen in the finale, except for those final moments where she gets that chilling phone call from Tyrell (Martin Wallstrom), who’s just shot Elliot (Rami Malek). Is she now working with the Dark Army? Can she be trusted?

“I was very pleased with everyone’s reaction,” Doubleday tells Variety. “They seemed pretty surprised and confused.”

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 12 Review: eps2.9_pyth0n-pt2.p7z

22 September 2016 12:46 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

"So much depends / upon / a red wheel / barrow / glazed with rain / water / beside the white / chickens."

So goes "The Red Wheelbarrow," a very short "silly little" poem by William Carlos Williams quoted by Tyrell Wellick in the opening flashback scene of Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 12. It's either straightforwardly simple or deceptively complex – as good an analogy for this show as any.

"Python Pt. 2" was a great finale. The first half was quite slow, and they purposefully didn't wrap up every single plot line, but I actually feel satisfied with where we left off.

I totally get that many viewers might not feel the same way. Some people really like closure, especially when we're due to wait nearly a full year for any new episodes. For me, the answers we got were enough, and I wasn't overly frustrated with the things left dangling.

First things first: once and for all, the »

[Watch] ‘Mr. Robot’ recap: Angela’s strange encounter & a long-awaited return in ‘pyth0n-pt1.p7z’

17 September 2016 8:59 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

If regular viewers of USA Network’s “Mr. Robot” were expecting answers in the first part of the season two finale, “eps2.9_pyth0n-pt1.p7z,” they didn’t get them. What they did get was the much-anticipated return of Martin Wallstrom as sinister Tyrell Wellick after an entire season missing in action, as well as an extended conversation between an FBI agent and […] »

‘Mr Robot’ Recap: Top 10 Questions From the Strangest Episode Yet

14 September 2016 8:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Do not read on unless you’ve seen “eps2.9_pyth0n-pt1.p7z,” the eleventh episode of the second season of “Mr. Robot.”

The week before its season two finale, “Mr. Robot” decided to get strange. Kidding! It’s been a dislocating and odd trip all season long, sometimes in a great way (I watched the sitcom version of the show again the other day, just for grins), and sometimes in a “I don’t know what’s happening but I’m going to go with it, I think?” way.

There’s no doubt that whatever you expected the second-to-last episode to be, it was probably not this. We did not find out what happened to Darlene and Cisco after last week’s shoot-out, and the one semi-expected event was the re-appearance of Tyrell Wellick — finally. It was about time. Having held him in reserve for so long, it seemed logical to assume “Mr. Robot” would haul »

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 10 Review: eps.2.8_h1dden-pr0cess.axx

8 September 2016 2:57 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Chess has been a theme throughout much of Mr. Robot Season 2. If we're thinking in chess terms, Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 10 is the act of getting all of your chess pieces in order for your final, game-winning (or losing) move.

In a word, it was epic.

I definitely preferred the later, tension-filled half of "Hidden Process," though there was no lack of great moments in the earlier half, which functioned mostly to set things up for the eventual madness of that final scene.

Seriously, the entire last 10-ish minutes were almost unbearably tense. Just when I thought things couldn't get any more nail-bitingly suspenseful, they upped the ante in the craziest way.

Let's start with the Elliot/Joanna plot, which I particularly enjoyed because (as I've said about a hundred times already) I completely adore Rami Malek's and Stephanie Corneliussen's acting and their chemistry together.

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 by USA Network

16 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network has renewed its signature drama series “Mr. Robot” for a third season.

The pickup was a fait accompli after the show secured an Emmy nomination for best drama series for its freshman year, when it emerged as a sleeper hit for USA. “Mr. Robot” is in the midst of its 10-episode second season.

The show produced by Universal Cable Productions remains a modest performer from a ratings standpoint, with its most recent airing on Aug. 10 grabbing 572,000 total viewers in Nielsen’s live-plus-same-day ratings. But the stylish thriller, created and exec produced by Sam Esmail , is bulletproof when it comes to ratings. The show has put USA on the map as a player in the prestige drama sweepstakes — grabbing Peabody, AFI, Writers Guild and Golden Globe kudos to date — as well as being a social media magnet.

Review: On 'Mr. Robot,' Elliot gets back into action with a 'Logic Bomb'

3 August 2016 8:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Mr. Robot coming up just as soon as I go to China for some General Tso... Midway through "Logic Bomb," Whiterose — or, as they're known in public, China's minister Zhang — quotes Dom a line from the famous "Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow" soliloquy of Macbeth as a way to explain their fascination with clocks and hatred of wasting time. Dom's strange, but she's also smart, and she immediately understands Zhang's point about the briefness of our lives and the importance of making the most of each passing second of them. As Esmail promised last week, "Logic Bomb" is shorter than the last few episodes have been, but still super-sized: 55 minutes instead of 65. The 10 minutes Esmail shaved off certainly helped, but the reason "Logic Bomb" didn't tick by nearly as slowly as the show's previous installment did was also reflective of its content.

The Best Drama on TV Returns for Year 2

15 July 2016 6:24 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Last year, the sensational USA Network cyber-thriller Mr. Robot won the Golden Globe for Best Drama series, beating out tough competition like the Game of Thrones. The mind-bending and unsettling first season of Mr. Robot was the sleeper hit of summer 2015, impressing fans and critics alike, delivering a show unlike anything else on TV. Now it’s back for its sophomore year and it’s just as slick, stylish and socially relevant as it was last year.

 Computer hacking; rage-against-the-system anarchy; split personalities; secret societies; evil corporations; the FBI…these are just some of the elements in the two-part season premier of Mr. Robot, (Both episodes aired back-to-back on Wednesday night), written and directed by series creator/showrunner Sam Esmail. Rami Malik is back as the psychologically broken Elliot Alderson, and Christian Slater returns as the eponymous Mr. Robot.

 The show starts off by strangely but smartly not answering the »

Mr. Robot: Season Two Ratings

14 July 2016 6:15 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The mysterious leader (Christian Slater) of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the corrupt and dangerous firm he's being paid to protect.

Mr. Robot Season 2 Review

13 July 2016 2:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

When the pilot of Mr. Robot aired in June last year, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump were mere outside candidates who had both just launched campaigns to become leaders of the Democratic and Republican parties respectively. Since then, the former has rallied the support of millions with his rallies against corporate America, while the latter remains in the running for the presidency thanks to his anti-establishment rhetoric. These unexpected developments may not quite be on par with the seismic societal shift at the climax of Mr. Robot’s first season, in which hackers had succeeded in taking on the entire capitalist system by wiping out all personal debt, but it’s fair to say that Mr. Robot tapped into a zeitgeist-y sense of general disillusionment and active rebellion against the status quo.

The aftermath of that hack sets the backdrop for the premiere »

Mr Robot's season two is proof the show refuses to play by the rules of TV

13 July 2016 10:11 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The first season of the hacker drama starring Rami Malek was award-winning, and the second is just as good, but completely different – quite a trick to pull off

The second season premiere of Mr Robot, which airs on USA on Wednesday at 10pm Et (Amazon in the UK), is a curious thing. After being the critical darling of last summer – and a sure bet for Emmy nominations when they come out on Thursday morning – people are expecting the dark and twisty hacker drama to be not only as good as the first 10 episodes, but also to provide more of the same. Viewers are expecting riddles to be solved, mysteries to be untangled and protagonist Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) to be seeking justice through the vagaries of computer science. They will get none of those things.

Mr Robot is one of the most exciting shows on television because it refuses to play by the rules. »

Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Stays True to Its Weird Self

10 July 2016 7:49 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The most important thing that “Mr. Robot” faced, going into Season 2, was the idea of addressing what happens next. While the Season 1 finale featured several unanswered questions, there was something relatively completist about the narrative, especially given the show’s biggest reveal — Mr. Robot’s (Christian Slater) real identity.

Fortunately, the Season 2 premiere proves that there’s plenty of story left to be told. The aftermath of fsociety’s big win at the end of Season 1 continues to reverberate across the world, but though things are far from resolved. Darlene (Carly Chaikin) and her fellow rebels are still trying to fully realize their revolution, while the Evil Corp executives are trying to recover their lost money and power. A battle has been won, but the war is ongoing. The system is damaged, but still technically intact. »
