Mr Robot season 2 episode 4 review: Init1

28 July 2016 5:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alec Bojalad Jul 28, 2016

Elliot plays a game of chess against himself in the latest instalment of Mr Robot. Here's our spoiler-filled review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.4 Init1

For a moment there it really looked like we would see who knocked on that damn door.

init1.asec* begins with what appears to be the end of last season but in reality is a flashback to a particular Halloween. Darlene knocks on Elliot’s door wearing the now infamous fSociety mask. Elliot tries to send her off as he usually does but she intimates that she cannot be alone.

*Rather confusingly titled for the computer illiterate. I naturally assumed the phonetic episode title was to read “In It” before Darlene reveals that the first computer command Elliot taught her was “init1”

So brother and sister spend Halloween watching one of their favorite movies from childhood, the slasher Careful Massacre Of The Bourgeoisie. »

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 3 Review: eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd

20 July 2016 10:49 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The predominant theme of this season seems to be that control is an illusion.

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 3 drove that point home thoroughly, with several characters echoing versions of the same thing: There is, quite simply, no way to remain in control of a life that is, by necessity, random and chaotic.

"Kernel Panic" was, as usual, a brilliant installment of an always-brilliant series. Particularly impressive was the way the show managed to weave in time to significantly develop new characters Dom Dipierro (the FBI agent investigation the 5/9 Hack) and Ray, Elliot's new, very questionable, friend.

To start with, Romero was murdered. Romero was one of the fsociety hackers who was more outwardly suspicious about Elliot and his leadership skills (and sanity). Elliot pulled a gun on him, so Romero's doubts were fair.

We didn't get to see Romero's manner of death onscreen – Mobley found his corpse (and a bad »

Disabled Characters on Television: 95% of Roles in Top 10 Shows Played By Able-Bodied Actors — Report

16 July 2016 3:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A new study by Ruderman White Paper took a comprehensive look at the employment of actors with disabilities in television. Their findings concluded that 95 percent of characters with disabilities in top 10 TV shows are played by able-bodied actors, an act that, according to the Ruderman Family Foundation, reveals the “unjust and troubling discrimination of actors with disabilities in Hollywood.”

Co-authored by “Seinfeld” actor Danny Woodburn and Kristina Kopić, advocacy content specialist at Ruderman, the study examined 31 shows across all platforms, from streaming, cable and network, and also determined that only four actors with disabilities were cast during the 2015-2016 season, amounting to less than 2 percent of all actors on screen. With people with disabilities representing nearly 20 percent of the Us population, it concluded that they are the most underrepresented minority in Hollywood.

What is the secret to Bryan Cranston's acting prowess? In a word, everything. "As an actor, the best thing I can do is allow everything that I am to come to the surface at any given point," the Breaking Bad and The Infiltrator star, 60, revealed during the latest edition of The Jess Cagle Interview with People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle. "My resentment, my anger, my loneliness, my curiosity, my goodness, my insecurities, my embarrassment - anything like that, that you would not normally want to show, that's a good thing for an actor," Cranston continued. Throughout the wide-ranging interview, »

Quick Hits

Last Year’s Winner: “The Daily Show” Was It an Upset? No. Still Eligible? Yes. Hot Streak: A Comedy Central variety talk series has won every year since 2002. Fun Fact: Variety Talk series dominated the Outstanding Variety category before it was split in two last year, winning 17 years running. “The Daily Show” won 10 of those, too.

“Comedians…in cars…getting coffee? What? Oh, ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee!'” That should sum up the typical reaction to seeing Jerry Seinfeld’s Crackle series making the cut; i.e., it might have taken a minute for reality to set in. Still, it’s in the race, providing a nice arc from the light and fun coffee chats, to the fun games of “Jimmy Fallon,” to the goofy antics of “James Corden” and the mean Tweets on “Jimmy Kimmel, »

2016 Emmy Directing Nominees: Writers Rule Comedy, Few Women Helmers Break into Top Series Races

14 July 2016 1:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A funny thing happened this year with the Emmy nominations for directing a comedy series: Most of the nods went to writers.

Meanwhile, female directors are few and far between in the top series races. One notable entrant is Beyonce, who earned a mention, shared with Kahlil Joseph, for variety special for the hourlong avant-garde film that premiered on HBO in tandem with the release of her album “Lemonade” in April. Also in the mix this year is Danish helmer Susanne Bier, up for limited series for her work as the sole director of AMC’s six-hour limited series “The Night Manager.”

The list of comedy series directing nominees is dominated by showrunners and those who came up the ranks as writers.

Silicon Valley’s” Alec Berg and Mike Judge each earned a nom for the HBO comedy, Berg for “Daily Active Users” and Judge for “Founder Friendly.” “Transparent” creator/exec producer Jill Soloway, who »

'Difficult People': How Julie Klausner Graduated from TV Superfan to TV Queen

14 July 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"When did comedies become half-hour dramas?"

These words, uttered by Billy Eichner via the acid pen of Julie Klausner in the newly launched second season of her Hulu sitcom Difficult People, come from a place of love. Klausner loves TV like a mother loves her child – which is to say she always wants it to do and be better. A lifelong acolyte of the medium, she's spent most of her life hovering around its fringes – consuming it by the binge-ful, recapping shows online, eventually landing staff writing gigs here and there. »

Bryan Cranston Spills Seinfeld Secrets: Here's Why Jerry Is Always Smiling

14 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jerry Seinfeld's small-screen alter ego on Seinfeld had plenty to feel good about: He had a loyal (if eccentric) group of friends, a successful career (good enough to buy his parents a new Cadillac), and a dating life that would put even the most devoted Tinder users to shame. But according to Bryan Cranston, who made several guest appearances on the hit sitcom as the joke-telling dentist Tim Whatley, there was another reason Seinfeld was always smiling. "It was so much fun, we had to stop rolling the tape often because Jerry would be laughing," Cranston, 60, revealed during the »

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episodes 1 and 2 Review: eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc; eps2.0_unm4sk-pt2.tc

13 July 2016 11:19 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Sam Esmail's brilliant drama-thriller is back with a vengeance.

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 1 was an immaculately directed, often shocking return to the dizzying world of Elliot Alderson. All in all, it was everything I hoped the second season premiere would be.

I'm wary about two-parters (so long) but in this instance, every minute was warranted. Given that the cast of characters had expanded so much by the close of the first season, it was smart to use the premiere to sort of "catch up" with nearly everyone, while still finding time to introduce new faces.

We first opened on the moment in which Elliot initiated the big, season-ending E Corp hack.

This was a cool choice, given that we didn't see this happen on screen back in Mr. Robot Season 1 – the hack took place sometime between the end of Mr. Robot Season 1 Episode 9 and the beginning of the Mr. Robot Season 1 Finale, »

Review: Elliot goes to war with 'Mr. Robot' in the riveting season 2 premiere

13 July 2016 8:32 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Mr. Robot has returned for a second season. I already published some spoiler-free thoughts on tonight's two-hour premiere, so now it's time to get into the specifics, coming up just as soon as I've discovered Seinfeld... "And this is why I'm different: sometimes, my mask takes over." -Elliot The Mr. Robot season 1 finale made an interesting choice in skipping over what seemed like major pieces of the larger fsociety plot — how the Evil Corp hack went down, what happened to Tyrell Wellick — to focus on Elliot dealing with the knowledge that he was Mr. Robot, and vice versa. At the time, I felt this was the right choice, since the show is ultimately about Elliot and what's going on inside his head, and his epiphany about having multiple personalities was much more important than any plot mechanics involving secondary characters. "Unmask"(*) actually rewinds to show Elliot executing the hack while Wellick watches — marveling that, »

But if you were hoping for answers about Tyrell Wellick’s fate and/or Elliot’s “missing” three days, or a follow-up on the connection between White Rose’s male persona and E Corp CEO Phillip Price, you got nary a thing.

Able-Bodied Actors Play 95% of Disabled Characters in Top 10 TV Shows, Says New Study

13 July 2016 3:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

95% of characters with disabilities in top 10 TV shows are played by able-bodied actors, according to a new study released by Ruderman White Paper.

The comprehensive study on employment of actors with disabilities in television reveals the “unjust and troubling discrimination of actors with disabilities in Hollywood,” per the white paper commissioned by the Ruderman Family Foundation.

The study proves that people with disabilities are the most unrepresented minority in Hollywood.

However, disabled actors have not been included in ongoing conversations regarding Hollywood’s diversity crisis, which has brought light to providing more jobs for people of color and equal pay for women, both in front of and behind the screen.

The report was co-authored by “Seinfeld” actor Danny Woodburn and advocacy content specialist at the foundation, Kristina Kopić. Hundreds of actors with visible and non-visible disabilities were surveyed for the study, which points to that people with disabilities represent nearly 20% of the U.S »

‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ Preview: Jerry Seinfeld & Lorne Michaels Joke About Dana Carvey

11 July 2016 4:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Seinfeld” is long gone, but Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is finally set to return for a ninth season, “Veep” is as funny as ever and Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” remains an entertaining diversion as well. Seinfeld’s next guest in the web series — which, as you might have deduced, features comedians in cars getting coffee — is Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels. Watch a brief preview of their encounter below.

Mr. Robot Review: Season 2 Boots Up With Less Hacking, More Heady Drama

11 July 2016 8:19 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Perhaps I was among a subset of Mr. Robot fans who appreciated Season 1 as a clever and engaging “heist” drama that was enriched by the fact that its antihero was, as eventually affirmed, plagued by mental illness.

The start of Season 2, though, inverts that formula, testing your willingness to cascade down many a dark rabbit hole with Eliot. But is that we want, to abandon the semblance of structure that the first season had, in the name of even more “What is real?” fake-outs? Wouldn’t that risk steering the acclaimed USA Network drama into being more of a niche appeal than ever? »
