Mr Robot returns to showcase for a third season today and according to Entertainment Weekly “Season 3 of Mr. Robot is a masterpiece, ballasting the global ambitions of season 2 while sharpening back to the meticulous build of season 1.”
As reported by Entertainment Weekly there’s a standout scene in the premiere when Elliot’s inner monologue starts pouring out of his mouth. He’s walking down a dark street, passing homeless people, his city downward spiraling; at this point, the economic situation of Mr. Robot‘s New York suggests a natural disaster and an economic collapse, Puerto Rico atop Occupy Wall Street, but the energizing rage of Mr. Robot was that some Americans already live that way, and most Americans feel like they live that way. “Did my revolution just bury our minds instead of freeing them?” Elliot ponders. He talks about Adam Smith, and he talks about exchanging dignity for safety. “I didn’t start a revolution,” he tells us. “I just made us docile enough for our slaughtering.” It’s a great scene, restating the show’s premise, deconstructing it, undercutting that deconstruction.
The premiere also introduces new cast member Bobby Cannavale, whose Irving is some Platonic Ideal of an old New York used car salesman.
Tune in to catch the Season 3 premiere on showcase tonight, 12 October at 8.30pm EDT and witness for yourself what the Entertainment Weekly is labeling as “noir as a blackout, and as sparkling as the stars over a city gone dark enough to see the sky”
The plot for Season 2 of Mr. Robot dealt with the aftermath and the impact on F society and E Corp and Elliot’s continued attempts to maintain an illusion of control. Watch the Season 2 Recap below.
