USA Network has released a troubling trailer for Mr. Robot – it’s a kaleidoscope of brief scenes from season three as Leonard Cohen recitess the lyrics from his song, Democracy.

A new photo from season three introduces us to a non-nonsense used car salesman named Irving – whom I suspect is anything but a used car dealer…

Mr. Robot returns Wednesday, Oct. 11th (10/9C).

Apocalypse Now? Emmys End On Time; Tatiana Maslany For The Win!

orphan-black

I’m not sure what the signs of the Apocalypse are but two of them are probably tonight’s Emmy Awards show finishing on time and the Academy actually giving Tatiana Maslany the Emmy for Lead Actress in a Drama.

Seriously. Who’d a thunk it? The members of the Academy must have actually watched some of the multitude of screeners with which they were deluged with this year.

I’m so stoked about this that I’m not terribly ticked off by many of the other choices (not that will keep me from commenting…) – all of which follow the jump.

USA Network’s Mr. Robot (Wednesdays, 10/9C) is, to quote the network’s blurb, ‘a techno thriller that follows Elliot, a young programmer, who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante hacker by night.  Elliot finds himself at a crossroad when the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the firm he is paid to protect.  Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world.’

As all blurbs are, this one is a simplification – for one thing, Elliot is substantially more than merely a cyber-security tech/vigilante. He is both a troubled soul – possibly at the highly functional end of the autism spectrum – who is almost clinically aware of his flaws. As such, he is one of the most relateable protagonists on TV right now.
