So after Rami and Christian were snubbed for the at the Golden Globes, we thought we’d bring you our own Mr Robot Hacks Oscars, beginning with the Best Episode from Season 2.0.
So who do you get to host a star-studded 89th Academy Awards where a certain musical comedy is expected to sweep the boards? That’s right Jimmy… oh.
Instead of all-singing, all-dancing Jimmy Fallon, the lesser talented Jimmy, Jimmy Kimmel hosts… Oh well. Meanwhile here on Mr Robot Hacks, you’re stuck with me! Sorry about that. And before you say it, yes we know that the Oscars are for film and Mr Robot is a TV show!
So without further ado, sit yo asses down and let’s run down the nominations for Best Episode before we rip open the golden envelope and find out that LaLa Land won this category too
In no particular order:
S02E10 – eps2.8_h1dden-pr0cess.axx
I’ve been banging on about S02E10 being the best ever episode of Mr Robot since about an hour after it aired. Not only because it was written by rookie scribe and friend of Mr Robot Hacks, Kor Adana, nor contained Elliot and Angela’s first kiss…
Nope, it was this extended sequence of Dom DiPierro’s good old-fashioned detective work which KRANKED the tension up to eleven.
Because like the best television, the audience knew the inescapable inevitability of what was about to go down between The Dark Army and Darlene and Cisco at Lupes Diner. The question was could Dominique race there ahead of this:
S02E03 – eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd
Wow! What an episode! To jog your memory, it saw Tyrell’s infamous “Bonsoir, Elliot”, Mobley finding Romero dead and Dom DiPierro tracking down and finding the F_Society arcade using nothing but the End of the World Party flyer.
Not to mention Elliot’s glorious anti-religion tirade and the impossibly good Adderall sequence in which he banishes Mr Robot.
S02E12 eps2.9_- pyth0n-pt2.p7z
The two episodes of the two-part season finalé couldn’t have been more different. the first saw Angela abducted and trapped inside an episode of Twin Peaks with a little girl and a 1980’s, Commodore 64 adventure game while all around us, Back to the Future references abounded.as we just waited to see what would happen to Elliot, Tyrell and Mr Robot’s Stage 2 and whether Trenton and Mobley made it out of New York…
Yet, while Scott Knowles was beating the shit out of Joanna Wellick and Darlene was in FBI custody – the proverbial moth to Dominique’s eternal flame…
We were on the edge of seats guessing what would happen to Elliot, Tyrell and Mr Robot’s Stage 2 and whether Trenton and Mobley made it out of New York…
So, there we go three of the best from Season Two – all you gotta do now is hit the corresponding Facebook smiley to vote for Best Episode in this inaugural Mr Robot Hacks Oscars. Now HURRY UP AND FINISH WRITING SEASON THREE ALREADY!
If only there was a way we could find out what happens to Elliot, Darlene, Tyrell, Angela, Trenton, Mobley, Whiterose et al before Season 3.0…
