Critic reviews for eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes

There were just so many great, small moments embedded among the absurdity of all this that I couldn't help but love it.

One of the great things about Mr. Robot is that each week... the audacious opening twenty minutes of this week's installment sets a new level of craziness.

Some of these changes worked, others didn't, but whatever the case, there's no denying that "eps2.4m4ster-s1ave.aes" was just an off entry for the show.

Yes, a fragmented episode. Each individual component worked, sure, but overall the splintering spoke to this season's overall lack of flow.

Here's the secret reason [it] works as well as it does: The rest of the episode is even better, so if you felt lost in the indulgence of the sitcom sequence (as you very well could have), you had a super fun heist movie waiting for you on the other end.

The caper plot was the episode's clear winner, while Elliot mental journey into '90s family sitcom-land was a fun idea that (like a lot of this season) arguably ran too long, before paying off well in the end.
