‘Mr. Robot’ Episode Goes ’90s: Watch The Amazing Fake & Real Vintage Ads (That Only Aired Once)
[Editor’s Note: Spoilers follow for “Mr. Robot” Season 2, Episode 6, “eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes.” (Full review here.)]

TV keeps making ostentatious plays for regaining live viewership (and, as a result, getting live eyeballs on ads). We’re never seen anything like this week, though, when USA’s “Mr. Robot” exploded the idea of what you can do with in-show advertising, and truly rewarded those who tuned in live.

Earlier in the day, creator Sam Esmail had tweeted out a warning that of all the episodes of “Mr. Robot” that have aired recently:

To our streaming viewers, you should watch tonight’s episode of #MrRobot live with the commercials. Trust me on this.

Last week’s episode ended with Elliot (Rami Malek) experiencing a brutal beating

Last Week’S Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Dances With Boundaries and Bullets

In Elliot’s Head, Two’s A Crowd

One of the great things about Mr. Robot is that each week, it might be a completely different show. It’s never been afraid to mix genres, styles and tones in its depiction of Elliot’s fractured mindset, but the audacious opening twenty minutes of this week’s installment sets a new level of craziness, as Elliot finds himself in an late-eighties/early-nineties sitcom — complete with theme music, laugh track and even a special appearance by a legendary Alien Life Form.

As much fun as it was to see Wellick bound and gagged in the trunk, or Gideon-as-cop get run down by Alf, or Darlene get repeatedly socked in the jaw by her mother, the thing that stood out in this sequence was the way Elliot’s genuine terror and bafflement

Jeepers Creepers Blu-Ray Review

Victor Salva’s Jeepers Creepers will be remembered for being Justin Long‘s breakout role and for turning the 1938 Louis Armstrong hit into a iconic horror ballad. Beyond that, it’s an above average horror film, that, despite the end being much weaker than the majority of the film, is quite entertaining and provides some quality scares.

We first meet Trish (Gina Philips) and her brother Darius (Long) as they drive along a deserted road, surrounded by meadows and farmland, on their way home from college. Their sibling banter is suddenly interrupted by an old, rusted truck that comes flying up on their car, horn blaring.

After letting the truck pass, and spending a few moments filling us in on the legend of a murder on that same highway, it seems the trip is back on schedule, that is until they spot the very same truck parked outside a dilapidated church,
