Mr. Robot (USA) - Season 2 Discussion Thread - premieres 7/13/16



(from USA's press release, June 2016) USA Network today announced that it has added two episodes to the Season 2 order for MR. ROBOT, upping the Universal Cable Productions series from 10 episodes to 12 episodes. Sam Esmail, the creator and executive producer of the Golden Globe Award-winning drama, will direct all 12 episodes this season. Additionally, the award-winning series will kick off its second season on Wednesday, July 13 at 10/9c with a premiere night event that includes two back-to-back episodes -- presented with limited commercial breaks -- and a newly-announced live after show. Providing a behind the scenes look at the breakout drama, the one hour, live HACKING ROBOT after show will air on July 13, immediately following the two episode season premiere. MR. ROBOT follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a cyber-security engineer who becomes involved in the underground hacker group fsociety, after being recruited by their mysterious leader (Christian Slater). The July 13 episodes, titled eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc and eps2.0_unm4sk-pt2.tc, will pick up 30 days after the now infamous fsociety 5/9 hack on multi-national company Evil Corp. Season 2 will explore the consequences of that attack as well as the illusion of control.

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
∑ Carly Chaikin as Darlene
∑ Christian Slater as Mr. Robot
∑ Grace Gummer as Dominique DiPierro
∑ Martin Wallstrom as Tyrell Wellick
∑ Michael Cristofer as Phillip Price
∑ Portia Doubleday as Angela Moss
∑ Rami Malek as Elliot Alderson
∑ Stephanie Corneliussen as Joanna Wellick

CREW INFORMATION:
∑ Chad Hamilton as EP
∑ Niels Arden Oplev as DIR (Pilot)
∑ Sam Esmail as CRTR/EP
∑ Steve Golin as EP

Spoiler:

Rami Esmail said at SXSW that he's treating season two less like a TV series and more like an extended feature film. All of the episodes have already been written, and they're shooting all their scenes in each location at once, rather than shooting the season chronologically. "Never before have I had a read-through of the whole season," Slater said. "It was a 12-hour read-through. Iíve never seen anything like that."

Season 2 doesn't have a pilot, just a premiere.

Awesome deal alert : Vudu is selling Season 2 with extras in HDX for $11.99 today only. Probably worth it just to watch the show without commercials.

I enjoy the show, but one thing I don't like is the insanity angle, trying to confuse the viewer by not making it plain what's real and what's not. I hope they don't do as much of that stuff this season.

I'm not a fan of the insanity angle either. However,

TVLine -- Mr. Robot Season 2 Boots Up With Less Hacking, More Heady Drama

It may be getting dropped from my "watch weekly" schedule.

I like how tucker started this thread, but doesn't actually say anything. He has 6 posts in the last 11 months. I guess we can expect to hear his opinion about the episodes in 2017.

I bought the Mr. Robot season 1 Blu-Ray and will try to watch those 10 episodes before I take a look at season 2. I think I gave it 3 or 4 episodes last year, but bailed because I wasn't feeling it. But I wanted to give it another shot due to the constant praise it was getting.

That's disappointing.

"Let's do less of what was actually interesting about the show, and more of what dragged it down."

Very excited for this. I thought S1 was one of the best freshman bows this decade.

Some of my friends raved about the show so I watched it a few months ago. Didn't think it was as great as they said, but it was decent enough that i'll give Season 2 a go. Working in IT, I liked that the hacking in the movie was actually more realistic then the crap we usually get in shows and movies.

Pumped to have this back. Hell I may watch live tonight, I rarely do that for shows anymore. Also, this feels like one of those shows that warrants episode by episode threads, seems popular enough, but whatever I guess.

Man, Craig Robinson showing up really threw me off for awhile. He'll always be Darryl to me.

Episode was good. This show is a real mindfuck at times. Need to let it sink in some more before I contribute anymore thoughts.

RIP Gideon

you know i checked my guide and even though it wasn't scheduled to record it does seem that episode 2 is on tonight, but on at 11pm EST and doesn't even say it is a new episode. what's up with that? people better check their listings because it seems next week jumps to ep. 3. i'm so confused...

Has anyone confirmed what the hell is going on with episode 2? It's actually scheduled for 12am Friday morning on my system...

That episode 2 listing has to be a mistake. There's no way USA will air it on Friday at 12am ET. I get the East coast feed here in California and it says 9pm.

Next week it's showing that episode 3 is airing in the regular timeslot.

Yeah, that's how it's scheduled here with Cablevision. I have WWE something from 8-10 then Queen of the South, then last nights Mr. Robot premiere and then ep. 2 at 12am and it doesn't even say "new"...

Re: Mr. Robot (USA) - Season 2 Discussion Thread - premieres 7/13/16

Not a lot of fans here in this forum, it seems.

I watched the first season last year, twice, and marathoned it again in the past 5 days. I thought the pilot was just great.

I watched the two new episodes last night, back to back, and thought they were great.

Just in case, comments about the two episodes:
Spoiler:

I chuckled at the church meeting and Elliot saying "amen".
I wonder if the "Seinfeld" fan is real.
Nice addition of Sandrine Holt ("new" evil Corp exec). I've seen her a lot lately in different shows.
RIP Gideon.

Hopefully we will know what happened with Tyrrel in the next episode.
It seems the general "Fight Club" influence will continue.

Okay, I figured out the confusion.

Last night's premiere was episodes 201 and 202 edited together.

So next Wednesday will be episode 203.

So tonight on USA they are re-airing episodes 201 and 202 separately starting at 11pm ET.
