    Mr. Robot

    appears to be weirdly amazing.

    I'm 7 minutes into the first episode and honestly my mind is kinda blown based on the fact that its actually technically sound. This is literally the first time I've seen a hacking oriented show on TV that wasnt Fucking Retarded, capital F, capital R.

    40 minutes in and im turning it off because a) its actually kind of intense and b) i want to go to bed soon but.. some cracks are showing but it still holds water. the 'cyber security firm' he works for is kind of silly as fuck but honestly? given the general level of tech sophistication on display, im ok with it.

    i have some concerns yes but im still issuing a strong buy recommendation.

    Don't lash out at me because you cant hang with serious discussions about MMA. It's really not my fault, is it.

    ehn... im suspending my endorsement based on the 2nd half of ep 1.

    its going after debt slavery but in a way that has obvious, glaring, spectacular flaws.

    what a waste.

    im going to let it ride because its still somehow less fucking stupid than anything else in the genre but ugh.

    What about Halt and Catch Fire?

    I need a new show.

    True Detective 2 is a dumpster fire.

    Tim Robbins is solid gold in Brink, though.

    Bruh are there any TV dramas that have satisfied your strict asian father standards, or are they all disappointments?

    dramas? well.. breaking bad i suppose. downton too but its more of a fashion show for me. house of cards (british version). i dont know if you could call the george smiley / le carre dramas 'tv series' but i dont think its a stretch and both are effectively flawless.

    deutchland 83 is not without its charms but the espionage itself is totally ludicrous, of course..

    i thought twin peaks was good.

    im enjoying vikings tremendously.

    walking dead transcends its genre at times.

    all said and done i enjoyed mad men.

    and on cable..

    early sopranos was rather choice if not a bit campy.

    the wire was top top if you remember to fast forward through scenes with white people.

    oh and fuck yeah deadwood.

    I've never watched this but I hear they silversteined the finale episode because parts of it resembled that homosexual black virginian shooter too much

    So Craig Robinson, aka The Black Dude From The Office, will be in season 2.

    Will he play the street wise sassy Black Dude with a good heart and all the right connections who always knows just what to say to capture the gravity of the moment?

    Only time will tell!
