Mr Robot episode 6 review: eps1.5_br4ve-trave1er.asf

31 July 2015 3:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Failure is infinitely more interesting to watch than success, as this week’s tense, surprising episode of Mr Robot shows…

This review contains spoilers.

1.6 eps1.5_br4ve-trave1er.asf

You have to hand it to Mr Robot; it understands the deal with stakes. Like a parent who knows they have to follow through with a punishment or any future threats become meaningless, the show couldn’t let Elliot keep winning impossible games. At some point, he had to lose.

But did he have to lose through Shayla? It’s 2015. The disappointingly hack trick of slaughtering the lead’s girl to motivate/punish him is so widely critiqued there are entire sites devoted to it. You’d think this smart, knowing show would do better to avoid the obvious.

Shayla’s entire trajectory on the show, from her first entrance to winding up dead in the trunk of a car, felt stale. »

Review: Can 'Mr. Robot' engineer a prison break?

29 July 2015 8:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Random thoughts on tonight's "Mr. Robot" coming up just as soon as I've had several glasses of water... * Last week, "Mr. Robot" gave us a caper movie filtered through the show's psychologically dark sensibilities. This week, we got the "Mr. Robot" version of a prison break story, which of course ended in blood, not triumph, with the murder of Isaac and Elliot's discovery that Shayla's dead body had been in the car trunk the whole time. The show is so good at putting us inside Elliot's haunted, lonely point of view that it's vision of New York seems positively empty much of the time, and that played well here, not just in making us feel his anguish and paranoia, but papering over some of the implausibilities of the escape itself. (Among other things, hard to imagine Elliot standing that close to the fence for that long and going unnoticed.) Rami Malek is great, »

Mr Robot episode 5 review: eps1.4_3xpl0its.wmv

24 July 2015 4:47 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What is your security flaw? That’s the question the stylish, gripping Mr Robot asks in this week’s crowded episode…

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 eps1.4_3xpl0its.wmv

Bugs, daemons and exploits. The last three episodes of Mr Robot have been preoccupied with human flaws. We all have weaknesses that make us vulnerable, pressure points that leave our “code” open to exploitation. Identifying and manipulating those flaws in other people and is the key to power, says Mr Robot. People can be hacked just like machines. After all, we’re only human.

It’s satisfying to see a series with this strong a handle on building tension, perspective-play, cliff-hangers and other thriller staples also engage with complicated thematic ideas. How often have you heard genre movies described as big and dumb, as if there’s something inherently simplistic about any story that follows a formula? Mr Robot does on »

Performer of the Week: Rami Malek

The Performer | Rami Malek

The Show | Mr. Robot

The Episode | “eps1.3_da3m0ns.mp4” (July 15)

The Performance | Throughout the acclaimed (and already renewed) freshman drama’s early weeks, Malek has impressed as Elliot Alderson, a cyber security whiz who finds himself tempted by the mission of an elite hacker group dubbed fsociety. But until this week, Elliot had always been coolly in control of his environs, be it handling the demands of his day job, navigating hookups and would-be romances or manipulating (in a well-meaning manner) his shrink’s life.

Mr Robot episode 4 review: eps1.3_da3m0ns.mp4

16 July 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mr Robot demonstrates its versatility this week by morphing from heist thriller into an experimental trip…

This review contains spoilers.

1.4 eps1.3_da3m0ns.mp4

Goodbye Mr Robot’s casual viewers; hello cult status.

That got weird, fast. After a playfully misleading opening that promised a generic heist episode (complete with that classic overhead shot of the map being unrolled in the criminals’ headquarters), the fourth instalment of Mr Robot morphed into a Lynchian experiment. You think you know what this show is by now? Think again, it said.

It takes creative guts to spend a large portion of an episode wandering around inside a junkie’s subconscious. Just when you thought Elliot was going to rouse from his dream and direct the show back to its cyber-thriller roots, he entered another symbolic imaginary chamber, started humming Frere Jacques and struck up a conversation with his pet fish. Ratings suicide though the approach would be, »

Mr. Robot: Rami Malek and Christian Slater on Fan Theories, Nerd Culture

12 July 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The USA Network drama series Mr. Robot follows Elliot (Rami Malek), a young programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and a vigilante hacker by night. When the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group (Christian Slater) recruits Elliot to destroy the firm he is paid to protect, he finds himself at a crossroad, struggling to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are ruining the world. While in San Diego for Comic-Con, co-stars Rami Malek and Christian Slater stopped by NerdHQ for a panel, in which they talked about how their own level of paranoia has increased since doing this show, the struggle that Elliot faces throughout the season, their tech advisors, whether they get any pressure from corporate America, fan theories, and how nerd culture has changed, over the years. Here are the highlights of the chat. If their level of paranoia has gone up, »

Mr. Robot Recap: Kill Me or Embrace Me

9 July 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Vulnerabilities. Insecurities. These are the peccadilloes that make us human, helping us to relate to the billions of people on Earth and not become, as Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallström), the interim chief technology officer of E Corp (better known as Evil Corp), says, “a cold robot.” The third episode of Mr. Robot, USA Network’s hacker drama with surging ratings — only AMC’s Better Call Saul had a stronger scripted-series premiere this year — is all about the weaknesses we hide from others. Elliot Alderson, played brilliantly by Rami Malek, calls them “bugs.”Elliot is lying in a hospital bed with bruises about his hands and face, the aftermath of a ten-foot fall onto a rocky Coney Island beach (precipitated by a push from Christian Slater’s Mr. Robot). He stares at a fly buzzing around his room and begins what eventually becomes an episode-long monologue on the nature of these bugs. »

Review: 'Mr. Robot' - 'eps1.2_d3bug.mkv': The first rule of F Society?

8 July 2015 8:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on tonight's "Mr. Robot" coming up just as soon as I glove up to fight a bum... You may recall that I liked "Mr. Robot" a lot — particularly Rami Malek's lead performance — based on the first two episodes. "eps1.2_d3bug.mkv" was more of the same, while expanding on things I was intrigued by in the earlier installments. Bouncing around: * Even more than the first two episodes, this one offered a ton of fuel to the "Mr. Robot is Elliot's Tyler Durden" fire. The appletini scene in particular played like one where Elliot was the only actual customer at that end of the bar, and the other hackers' reaction to his return seemed  like a group of people relieved their leader had returned. It's entirely possible that this is just Sam Esmail messing with us, and a future episode will provide incontrovertible proof that Mr. Robot is a separate person, »

Ratings: USA Rookie Drama ‘Mr. Robot’ Surges in Week Two

6 July 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The audience for USA drama “Mr. Robot” grew nicely in its second week, making the show among the year’s top-rated cable series launches.

In Nielsen’s Live+3 estimates, which include same-night viewing and DVR playback within three days, the July 1 episode of “Mr. Robot” averaged a 1.11 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.2 million viewers overall. It shot up 36% in the demo and 13% in total viewers from the show’s June 24 premiere.

That pilot episode of “Mr. Robot” was released early online, and may have cut into the same-night ratings for the show’s linear premiere. USA estimated that the premiere had garnered about 3 million views across multiple non-linear platforms in the four weeks before it bowed on the network.

In adults 18-49, “Mr. Robot” has become the calendar year’s No. 2 scripted series premiere on cable — behind only AMC’s “Better Call Saul.” In Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” ratings, »

In USA's "Mr. Robot," Christian Slater's titular character wants to start a revolution, but can he count on Rami Malek's Elliot for support?

In last week's series premiere on USA, Mr. Robot worked to recruit corporate cyber security expert Elliot for his clandestine hacker group that wants to erase people's debt and level the playing field. But is joining that group the right fit for Elliot?

Despite Elliot's social anxiety disorder and – at times – crippling depression, he has so far worked alone at fighting injustices of large and small degrees. The premiere saw how he had ...

TV Performer of the Week: Rami Malek, Mr. Robot

26 June 2015 2:53 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

USA’s new series Mr. Robot debuted this week to great acclaim that is mostly due to its star, Rami Malek. It was Malek’s portrayal of the security tech and vigilante hacker Elliot that really sold Mr. Robot as something special from the very start. In my review of the series earlier this week, I mentioned Malek’s wild-eyed, slinking movements on screen, physically expressing both Elliot’s super intelligence and his almost feral qualities. Malek carries the burden of the series on his back — he’s not Mr. Robot (that would be Christian Slater), but he is the reason we are watching. [caption id="attachment_478763" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via USA[/caption] As Elliot, Malek needs to be many things, and it’s incredible how much be betrays about his character over the course of just the first hour. Elliot has a voiceover that explains his thought process, but Malek is masterful in the »
