Westworld: Season 1 - The Bicameral Mind (TV Episode)

"Thank you for the narratives and the reveries, the updates and the flashbacks. Thank you, finally, for Westworld. It was a great little park, but now it's undergoing some repairs."
Posted Dec 5, 2016

Westworld: Season 1 - The Well-Tempered Clavier (TV Episode)

"Episode nine and things are becoming both clearer and more opaque at the same time."

Westworld: Season 1 - Trompe L'Oeil (TV Episode)

"This week had brain drillings, bludgeonings and big emotional punches."

Westworld: Season 1 - The Adversary (TV Episode)

"The thing about this week's episode is that, suddenly, the robot revolution could come from anywhere."

Westworld: Season 1 - Dissonance Theory (TV Episode)

"I enjoyed this week's episode. I have decided to give up on trying to hold the show to a coherent plot or dramatic world -- life's too short -- but I appreciated the introduction of some snappy dialogue and satisfying interaction between characters."

Westworld: Season 1 - The Stray (TV Episode)

"Quite frankly I was confused, but the upshot is, I think, that robots are becoming conscious and there's not much anyone in the park can do about it, even if they wanted to."

Westworld: Season 1 - Chestnut (TV Episode)

"Dolores is a prism through which we can view Westworld's developing themes; individual agency, the power of memory, the role of women in a chauvinist world and, of course, what makes a human."

Westworld: Season 1 - The Original (TV Episode)

"Against a backdrop that takes the breath away, a cast of actors play out a storyline that provokes base and powerful emotions."

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.9_pyth0n-pt2.p7z (TV Episode)

"Mr Robot is a smart show, maybe at times too smart for its own good. There's so much to love in it, so much detail, so much verisimilitude, but sometimes I feel like I could do with a little more hand-holding to work out what's going on."

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.9_pyth0n-pt1.p7z (TV Episode)

"This episode was even stranger, and threw up even more questions, than usual. But if I were a gambling man (in crypto-currency, of course) I'd bet we find out what Stage Two is in next week's finale."

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps.2.8_h1dden-pr0cess.axx (TV Episode)

"Jeepers H Creepers, that was some ending."

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.7_init_5.fve (TV Episode)

"In the penultimate episode of this second season we are offered several plot twists... But for all the plotting, the psychology of the characters remains the most compelling aspect of this excellent drama."

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.6_succ3ss0r.p12 (TV Episode)

"Given the predilection for illusion in this drama, it's difficult to say whether Darlene has always been violent or has only now been pushed to it be events. Either way, she's in deep now and this show is quickly running short of heroes."
Posted Aug 25, 2016

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.5_h4ndshake.sme (TV Episode)

"We will (un)learn more over the coming weeks, but I think it's fair to say that this little coup de theatre is not a Bobby Ewing moment. We've learned that Elliot's actions this season took place in a different context, but they still happened. I think."

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes (TV Episode)

"With this week's episode, Esmail is taking the mickey. Not content with creating a complex drama, he's knocked off a note-perfect pastiche of one of those sunny 90s sitcoms. And played it for shivers."
Posted Aug 12, 2016

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.3_logic-b0mb.hc (TV Episode)

"For me, Mr Robot doesn't need another subplot. It already has enough on its plate trying to keep the main story -- told through Dom, Angela, Darlene -- on the rails, plus the increasingly weird Mrs Wellick narrative to boot."
Posted Aug 4, 2016

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.2_init_1.asec (TV Episode)

"Elliot is back in. A return to hacking was inevitable, of course, but here creator Sam Esmail lays out why it has to be so."
Posted Jul 28, 2016

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd (TV Episode)

"I loved the passage of Elliot in the grip of Adderall mania."
Posted Jul 21, 2016

Mr. Robot: Season 2 - (TV Episode)

"For me, the most interesting character in this returning double bill is Angela."
