Critic reviews for eps2.2_init_1.asec

Say what you will about Mr. Robot, but it rarely if ever does anything without a purpose. I can't think of one gun Sam Esmail has brought into center-frame he didn't eventually fire.

This week's episode belongs to Darlene, and its a great showcase for Carly Chaiken.

When a show is taking place as much inside the main character's head as Mr. Robot is at the moment, this length is incredibly hard to sustain without feeling the weight of every minute ticking by.
