Mr Robot on Amazon

Like many of you, I was sucked into Mr. Robot, a television show which I’ve described as Hackers meets Fight Club, by way of The Social Network. It was surprising that a show of this quality could be a USA Network original series (and that’s not a slam from someone who doesn’t know that the channel has some good shows — I watch Suits). And to say that season one of Mr. Robot left us with more questions than answers is an understatement. USA Network has released the first teaser trailer for the second season, which plays up many of these questions but mainly: what did Elliot hope to accomplish, and what happened during Elliot’s blackout? Watch the Mr. Robot Season 2 Teaser Trailer now embedded after the jump.

Thus far, the casting for Lemony Snicket‘s A Series of Unfortunate Events has been on point. Netflix’s adaptation got off to a great start by landing Neil Patrick Harris to play Count Olaf. Harris can be both funny (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog) and sinister (Gone Girl), making him a good fit for the comical but frightening antagonist.

The latest addition to the Netflix series is Aasif Mandvi (The Brink), who will play the Baudelaire children’s beloved Uncle Monty. And there’s more for Mandvi fans: he will also star in Mr. Robot season two.

Mr Robot Season 2

F Society hacked the Television Critics Association before the USA Networks panels in a video accusing us of telling viewers what to watch so they don’t have to think for themselves. Their video concluded with a veiled threat that they’re monitoring all of our Wifi usage, so we need better security protocols.

The Mr. Robot panel included creator Sam Esmail and cast members Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday and Carly Chaikin, fresh off their Golden Globe wins for Slater and the series. Esmail was careful about season two spoilers, but big spoilers for season one follow.

Mr. Robot finale

USA’s Mr. Robot is one of the year’s most pleasant surprises. While some called the drama derivative, it went on to find its own identity. The show came close to greatness, and it left the door open for more drama and higher stakes. The big brains behind the operation, show creator Sam Esmail, may direct every episode of the sophomore season.

Mr Robot Season 2

Mr. Robot was one of my favorite television shows of this year. From the series’ surprise twists and turns, to the interesting framing and composition, to the almost up-to-the-minute commentary on our modern world, to the refreshingly accurate look at computer systems and hacking. Sure it didn’t always hit a home run, and I think a lot of us saw that last twist coming a mile away, but it did so many things right. I’m excited to the see where the story goes in the second season, especially now that “the cat is out of the bag”.

Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail and some of the cast appeared at New York Comic Con over the weekend, and revealed some information on the second season. We also take a look at some of the previous quotes from Mr. Esmail and cast, as well as some rumors (including when we might expect to see the second season premiere). Hit the jump to find out what was revealed.

Comet Emmy Rossum Justin Long

Editor’s note: This review originally ran in June, but the wonderful Comet opens in limited release this weekend, so we’ve republished it. It’s also on demand. Watch the trailer here.

Imagine you’re watching your relationship on TV. It is playing on five channels, with each channel airing a different stage of the relationship. When things get too uncomfortable, awkward or emotional, you just flip the channel. On that next channel, you’d continue to watch your relationship unfold, maybe from a point a few years later. The cumulative result of the experience would probably put into perspective the whole of what you and another person can be together. Loving in one moment, hateful in another, caring, selfish and more.

That metaphor is an elaborate attempt to describe Comet, the directorial debut of Sam Esmail, which had its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival this weekend. Comet stars Emmy Rossum and Justin Long as the central couple. While there is absolutely no TV channel surfing involved, the film’s complex and fascinating structure feels like that, from the audience perspective. It’s a dense, funny, insanely well-written and well-acted film. Unlike most romantic films, it keeps you guessing. Simultaneously, it raises questions about the nature of love, life, and truth, all disguised in an semi-conventional love story told in the most unconventional of ways. It’s a special movie.
