Trivia

Origin of the Title:
  • In bitwise operations, a mask is data that turns bits to 1 (on) or 0 (off). It is a simple operation used to put images over a screen, such as moving video game images in early games such as PacMan.
  • The extension: The .tc extension indicates a file has been encrypted with TrueCrypt. True Crypt was a freeware encryption program used for on-the-fly encyption. It was discontinued in 2014, following issues with unfixed file security problems.

Goofs

Near the end when Joanna Wellick's phone rings and then shows the time and date, it shows the date as Sunday, 15 June. The last time 15 June fell on a Sunday was 2014. Yet earlier in the premier episode we hear someone say something about "2015 will be the year to remember..." See more »

Quotes

Phillip Price: We con people into believing in something, the American dream, family values. Could be freedom fries for all I care. It doesn't matter as long as the con works and people buy and sell whatever it is we want them to.

This is not TV. This is art.
14 July 2016 | by escctrlshiftSee all my reviews

Any intelligent person should be bored stiff by TV series these days. How Mr. Robot escaped the confines of the imagination into an actual cable-channel series is anyone's guess, but my guess is this: nearly everything else on TV is derivative, flat and tedious at best; the worst should not even be described. And someone at the USA Network realized the smarty-pants audience could be captured with the right bait. Well they got me.

This series has it all -- especially in the brains department -- from the director right on down to and including the location scouts and set designers. The whole production is a feast for writers, artists and hackers generally. And the soundtrack is fabulous.

Granted this may not be the most memorable, or the most profound episode yet in this series -- I seriously doubt it -- but I'll give it 10 stars anyway, because I can. And because the series is by any measure great art and should be recognized as such.

Episode 2 (eps2.0_unm4sk-pt2.tc, named for an obscure Apple II filetype, or for a contemporary 'TrueCrypt' file) delves deeper, nay, shallower than ever into the psyche of all the characters. In this episode the narrative is literally trapped in the outer confines of each character's mind, until Elliot's unconscious (predictably) rears its ugly head towards the end, and (surprisingly!) not primarily in the person of Christian Slater's character.

The "analogue" direction of Eliot's life -- established in episode 1 -- extends symbolically throughout episode 2, into the way devices are used and communications are rendered, for example.

Neuroatypical and tech-savvy users will surely appreciate his efforts to "ground" himself via routine, journaling, and group meetings in a church basement...been there and done that. Meanwhile survivors of a brutally narcissistic spouse will appreciate the further unfurling of Joanna Wellick, the lead villainous female character.

My only wish is, may we we see more of Carly Chaikin please...
