I do believe it's time for some #ElRobot. eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc. In which shit gets way weirder and better.
Opening on Tyrell is a very "here is the trick I'm going to pull" opening.
The lighting levels in the arcade dropped precipitously between seasons. Usually lighting dark is lame but god this show looks good.
The cut to the notebook is so thoroughly weird and alienating. And then Elliot's totally inscrutable situation.
Who is this Leon guy? Why is this Elliot's life? Fucking basketball? It's a totally inscrutable opening position for the show.
Hot Carla is a really nice bit of understated trans rep, even if she does deserve more screen time.
I like that the red light they're going to use for the reveal is on Krista's wall from the start.
Berating the audience for keeping secrets from him is great.
Kinda love Mr. Robot shooting Elliot. It's a new flavor of weird.
Castrating the Wall Street Bull is where I texted @industrial_book and told him to watch this show. He disputed that this constituted terrorism, insisting instead that it was joyism.
And then the Bitcoin truck. Must get @davidgerard to watch too.
First appearance of the recurring TV host.
If you have a swimming pool in a character's first scene...
The extended smart home horror is a nice beat and well lingered on.
Terrorist leader Darlene is unnecessarily sexy.
The Gideon scene is a bit of a drag. That's the flaw that S2 picks up. Its methodical pace occasionally slips into sleepiness.
This is such a great point to introduce Darlene's anxiety.
The piano over this is magnificent. As is the closeup of shattered liquid crystal pooling.
The depiction of a post hack world is super unsettling.
The ransomware hack is really just there to do an intra-episode cliffhanger.
Part two in a few. @threadreaderapp unroll
