Best Episode Of A TV Show This Year
21 July 2016 | by mad_man_moonSee all my reviews

Sam Esmail has written and directed the perfect television episode, which is an unrelenting, beautiful, intense, masterpiece.

From the outset (which had elements of Tarantino) to the framing and movement he brings from Tod Campbell, to the final act. There is not a single dropped frame that doesn't hold emotional, metaphorical, and literal meaning in eps2.1.

Everyone does extremely well in this, but I had to pull out Michael Cristofer for what he does here. Reminding me a little of his character in Rubicon (they have very different make ups, of course) in just how much depth is built in to what is going on with every word he says. Doubleday also for similar reasons.

This is just a ridiculously fantastic piece of film making. It's worth watching the whole series just to get to this point.
