The hacker genre is a tough one to do well. So is displaying mental illness. The line between really good and overblown cliche is really thin for both.

This show gets it. Enjoyed. :fletch:

I agree with 'sco. I really enjoyed this show, despite being ridiculously dark. I thought it didn't quite carry the momentum through to the end of the season, but when this show is on it's really really really fucking good.

I watched the whole of season one in, like, three days.

I enjoyed it very much. Colby reminds me of Jerry Springer. I like Darlene's shorts. OK.

Treemendous ep last night.

I might be thick, but I didn't realize that the narration to the audience was actually a 2nd character in his head until last night. What's up with that? Was that a reveal or am I just a dumbass?

Think I am ready for the leap into the larger conspiracy.

MTM is your boy Tyrell a patsy or is him and the wipe a marriage towards a goal and not about the sex?

You are just a dumbass, sorry. The 2nd character in his head was revealed a while back.

The larger conspiracy - what the fuck is White Rose up to? Something's coming there.

Tyrell is no patsy. BUT WHERE THE FUCK IS HE.

What the fuck??? Ok, they've been good so I'm gonna go into this with an open mind, but the ending made me wonder what the fuck went on those first seven episodes?

Not surprised. Just happy Joey Bada$$ exists in my fake TV friend's real life.

More curious what he's in Rikers for.

I'm checking in to also say WHAT IN THE FUCK. But also not really that surprised. More annoyed.

I would've guessed a loony bin instead.

Sweet ass rape.

So, we can't trust anything we've seen from Elliot's perspective. What about the other characters? If their stories are real, then how do they handle the times they interacted with Elliot? If they're not real, then JTFC those seven episodes were a waste of time. I like that Elliot's mental illness is an integral part of the show (as opposed to You're The Worst where they decided to shoehorn it in during season two to add gravitas to a show that had been better when it was less serious), but I fear they may have tried to go too far the rabbit hole too quickly here.

Best ep of the season. Angela is the best. That karaoke scene spoke to me. In my pants.


It's crazy how I'm preferring Elliot being put on the backburner. That has to be deliberate. I'm thinking the next episode is going to really up the ante. "I WILL REIGN CHAOS" yesssssssssssss.
