Mr. Robot Revisited | Season 1 Episode 5 Recap

Listen to the Podcast

Hello, friend! Welcome to the Mr. Robot podcast on Post Show Recaps. Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) are re-watching and discussing a new episode of Mr. Robot season one every week, leading up to the season two premiere on July 13. The podcast contains two separate spoiler-free and spoiler-filled sections. Please do not post spoilers in the comments section.

This week, Josh and Antonio discuss the fifth episode of the series, which sees Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) breaking into the “impenetrable” compound known as Steel Mountain in order to topple Evil Corp. But several roadblocks conspire against him, including the flesh-and-blood obstacles known as Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallström) — assuming he’s flesh-and-blood at all. Oh, and Bill. Never forget Bill.

Send your questions in for the podcast through our feedback form. Next week’s podcast focuses on episode three of the series.

WARNING: The spoiler section of the podcast begins at the 1:00:28 mark.

    AMC is now running a show called Preacher that is cinematically rich, wonderfully cast, and deviates very creatively from the graphic novel by Ennis and Garth upon which it is based.
    As I’m watching this show I thought that this might be a great opportunity for you guys, Josh and Antonio, to begin planning a Post Show Trifecta for next year when Season Two gets announced and the awards start rolling in. You could do a spoiler free episode by episode breakdown once a week, with a spoiler section addendum and, here’s where the Trifecta part comes in, you could then do an addendum to the addendum Book Club Section where you discuss the differences between the screen play and the graphic novel. Believe me the differences are mystifying and really well thought out.
    What do you think guys?
