Let's aim to wrap up S1 of @whoismrrobot tonight. First up, eps1.8_m1rr0r1ng.qt #ElRobot
The big reveal, and a compelling exercise in making it seem less big.
Vintage technology as establishing shot, confirmed in dialogue after.
Elliot's father is an interesting character. A compelling mixture of deep flaws and likability.
I do love the ethos of "that guy was a pick."
Ah. The first truly brilliant title card.
This works very hard to get us to the twist. The exaggerated paranoia making it clear that this can't really be his father.
"You want answers? Stop asking questions." Lol
This long Gideon scene is nice. Enough before his death that it's not manipulative.
Elliot's train safety game is pleasantly fucked up.
Joanna is great throwing Tyrell out. Doesn't need the adoption story though.
Price gets his first real scene. Unsettling in entirely inarticulable ways.
The honeypot server is pure MacGuffin.
Darlene/Angela are of course the best ship.
"I will never leave you alone again." Gloriously creepy.
"You're going to make me say it aren't you" is a boss move. As is dropping that reveal on a cut to commercial, with 13 minutes left.
Angela that is an amazingly fucked up thing to say.
I love Terry's recruitment of Angela. So skeevy. Such a good twist.
Angela's poise is so hot.
Darlene he can't consent to blowing up capitalism right now don't pressure him.
Tyrell's behavior here is tough to reconcile with his interaction with Mr. Robot.
And now the most audacious musical cue in all of television.
"I wanted to save the world." *popcorn goes off* has there ever been a better cliffhanger? @threadreaderapp unroll
