I've been a long time fan of Mr. Robot and I heard about Maniac a few months ago when promotional material started coming out for it. I anticipated its release tonight and finished the first episode.
I think Mr. Robot and Maniac have SO many similarities, here are a few:
I really think Mr. Robot fans would enjoy Maniac, at least give the first episode a try maybe.
If you've watched it already, let me know what you think in the comments.
It's in the very beginning of the first episode of season 1, over the opening credits. 7:19-7:43. I have all of Mac Quayle's music from the show on Apple Music and I listened to damn near all of them and can't find this particular one. Can anyone help me out?
I’ve watched Mr. Robot since the night it aired and convinced many friends to watch it. We’ve enjoyed debating different theories and stuff over the years.
My girlfriend was never big into movies and shows growing up, so in the past year that we’ve met, I’ve done my best to show her some of the best stuff film and television has to offer.
However, I’m struggling to get her to watch this, because when I explained the show to her, I explained Elliot as being someone who suffers from a variety of mental illnesses. She has a form of OCD where she obsesses over illnesses and she’s afraid this show might be a bit triggering for her. I tried to explain that it wouldn’t, but is there someone who would maybe be able to offer some advice or how the show felt for them?
Hi...this ia my first post here !!!! Here it goes ... Joanna makes Sutherland kill Kareem , the car owner. Sutherland asks why they did not kill him in one shot...why go through so much trouble..Jonna replies that they owe him an explanation otherwise they are just ruthless murderers. When Whiteroses' assistant kills Mobley and Trenton (believing Whiterose ordered it ), he too explains in detail why they are dying. So, do they have the same mentality? Is Joanna one of the top one percents too??
Sam Esmail, you genius.
If you have not already known, Esmail said the E-corp "E" is "Totally the Enron logo." See?
If you are unfamiliar with the story of Enron, don't just read up on it. Watch this documentary, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (I cannot find a free version but I'm sure it exists somewhere; otherwise it's a few bucks on Amazon).
Watching this doc felt like Season 3 in more ways than the connection of evil business practices, manipulation, power, control, and every other theme Mr. Robot presents so well (the list goes on and on).
[Not to mention, Ken Lay is basically Philip Price, and Jeffery Skilling is an older Tyrell Wellick].
The other connection is: the doc uses the same "123...12345.... 1234567" song as Season 3:
The song appears about halfway through the doc, you'll have to watch to find out.
I instantly got chills. I thought that Esmail had to have used the song because he watched this documentary and felt it was a perfect fit. It could be a coincidence, but trust me, if you watch the doc you will probably think otherwise. The entire film is chillingly similar to Season 3.
And tonight, I just finished the last episode of Season 3. Wow....this is a really, really good TV show, that I kept expecting to fizzle out at some point, but it just kept ramping up harder and harder. I don't really even watch TV; I haven't seen Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Black Mirror, Stranger Things, any of them. But I'm really, really glad I got into this show.
Unrelated, has there been any speculation on what could be in White Rose's plant? I really think she might be working on a time machine lol. It makes sense on a lot of levels, but would be really hard to make good TV out of in Season 4 I think. When time machines get involved, plots get holes.
But if you think about it, this entire show, this entire plot happened all so White Rose could keep inspectors out of her plant and get it moved out of the United States. There has to be something super secret, super crazy in there.
Thanks for reading!
I am really surprised to see that there isn't a post on here about Season 3 being Mr. Robot's last season.
I was really surprised and disappointed when I heard this news. This is a really good show and to se it leave so soon is pretty disappointing.
