Mr. Robot Revisited | Season 1 Episode 2 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 second episode of the series, which sees Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) fielding a new job offer, an old drug habit, a new foe, and old painful memories. Both Elliot and the viewer see new sides of Mr. Robot (Christian Slater), too, who proves that his Robin Hood ideology boasts a whole lot of bite along with the bark.

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 1:00:00 mark.

    So, I watched this show when it came out last year, and after your fabulous podcast last week, I binged the whole season again. Now after this podcast, it looks like I need to go back for Binge 3.0. How could I have missed this and that? Is this show like morphine? Am I living in a Memento world? Does this show have Memento like elements?
    Do I need to make an appointment with Krista?

    Hello friend. Are you seeing this right now? I have a podcast being posted just for me. At least I think it is just me. I need to write this so that I can come back some day and remember that I wrote it. At least I will think it was me.

    Love the street level stuff with Vera, I’ve known my share of similar types, not anymore because I applied the Life Equation to myself. Hahahaha Terry Colby challenge beast.

    Elliot throwing himself off the rail is Elliot reliving that trauma. I think that sometimes when Mr. Robot(Chritian Slater), by the way isn’t it easier to just call Slater’s character Mr. Robot?is talking with Eliott and with Wellick, it’s all in his mind.I love how Cisco was the loser who Darlene dumps and the Dark Army connection and the White Rose character, I love BD Wong and also believe he’s pulling major strings.,I think Elliott strangled his Mother in a way similar to Wellick strangling the CTO’s wife. Eliott,Mr. Robot, Wellick are all inhabiting the same body. The Darlene stuff is so great on rewatch, so less annoying ha. Man Shayla in the trunk really hit me hard, I see Vera wanted to teach Eliott the lesson Eliott teached him, Time+ Information +Effort is all that matters, apply that to everything and anything is possible.Great Podcast Friends,Goodbye.
