You know … I have had doubts.
Which may sound odd, I know.
I’ve had my doubts about the job I’ve got.
It’s a very good job, with a nice bunch of co-workers, a job that’s challenging, makes good use of my customer service skills AND feels socially useful.
Over the past couple of weeks, though?
Having the hours cut has been something of a blow.
I’ve just had next weeks rota in: which looks rather healthier.
At least in the amount of hours I’m down for.
No complaints, there, then.
For now, though?
For now, it’s this week: and I’ve plenty of time off to catch up with a TV show or two …
Bet you can’t guess which TV show … ?
Episode 1 — eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc — gives us a brief re-cap of what’s happened of the last series.
Then introduces us to Susan Jacobs: the Chief Legal Officer for Evil Corps: a talented, wealthy woman … evicted from her plush smart-apartment, then the smart devices start acting up.
Once she’s out … ?
Darlene (Carly Chaikin), sister to Elliot, and one of his fellow
fsocietyhackers, moves in with a small team.
And immediately starts planning the groups next move.
Episode 2 — eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc sees Elliot (Rami Malek) still in apparently seclusion, still troubled by visits from Mr Robot (Christian Slater) … and dealing badly with them.
Episode 3 — eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd shows us a flashback: Mobley (Azhar Khan) renting the arcade that’s due to to become the
fsocietyfrom Romero (Ron Cephas Jones) … before both, years later, become
Then … ? And in scenes foretelling the recent ransomware attack on the NHS, shows what what
fsocietyto to various E Corp banking systems.
Are you still there?
I hope so, I’d hate to go through the bleary eyed, late night, typing for nothing.
I don’t know if you read any of my posts about the first series of Mr Robot … but, bar the titles*? The first series had me impressed, with it’s story-telling, sympathetic hero and strange camera angles: AND wanting more.
Which is why I went and bought series two, as soon as I had the chance.
Frankly? And going on the strength of these first episodes?
That was money well spent.
Money … and time …
Frankly, I’m going to be putting more posts up about this second series.
Series 2 looks like it’ll be on a par with series one.
* The titles are meant to look like pirated software, or films. As far as I can tell! (I don’t know about the unmasking bit: but a
kernel panic— if you’re using a Unix based OS, like Mac OS X, or a Linux distribution — crashes, after various bots of software have problems. I had one or two on the old G4s I had, none on Bruce, the Mac Mini I’ve still got, and just one on my MacPro. Frankly, the Mac Pro’s had more problems with its hard drive!)
