Sam's direction was exceptional.
May need to re-watch. Might have been distracted or sleepy.
The deeper insanity aspect in these first eps seems to let them throw in whatever crazy story elements they want and then write them off (i.e., J. R. Ewing's dream). Hope they don't lose me. Loved last season.
I thought it was an excellent opening episode.
I liked it but I'm still a little lost with some scenes. For example: who was the woman who found a package gift wrapped on her doorstep with a phone in it?
It was Pam Ewing's dream, not J.R.'s.
I was distractedly watching this while working, but did they stop censoring the f-word?
Came to update that, thx!
Yes. I think USA gave Sam Esmail this degree of freedom based on the critical praise for Mr. Robot last year; USA has reportedly been wanting something a little more edgy like this.
Joanna Wellick, dark muse wife of Tyrell Wellick.
Cool easter egg from the post show. .
The QR code that Elliot had sketched takes you to Confictura Industries.
After I read the article, I also noticed Elliot's composition book where he was writing all of this was manufactured by Confictura Industries.
Is Leon real?
Not sure. Didn't he get the basketball, and have the guy take it from him? At first I thought that interaction meant he was real, but maybe it was just Elliot giving the ball. I don't think we saw who it was.
ugh. Just reading that question makes me not want to watch S2
As season 1 proved, just because we see someone doing something, doesn't mean they are real. I think the only proof beyond any doubt is if Elliot and the other person are independently acknowledged by an observer. Like if a waitress had come by and talked to each of them.
It's not like in the 6th Sense where he never interacted with anything.
I think Leon is real. It's the way Elliott's analog life looks to him (or us) that is not real.
I'm pretty sure Leon is real, as I doubt that an element of Elliot's imagination would know that much about Seinfeld.
I also think Leon is real.
Noticed something odd about Elliot's environment.
It's almost as though he's doing some sort of jail time or psychiatric supervision.
His "program" follows a strict pattern...
Krista - asked "why your mom?" instead of "why are you living with your mom?"
The references about being seen by Darlene implied her visits were not frequent, and Angela wasn't mentioned. Gideon may have been a visitor.
Leon seems a little off. Ray seems a little off.
His other primary settings were the diner (which could have been the way Elliot perceives a cafeteria) and the basketball court.
He spends time cleaning, and doesn't seem to be worried about income.
We see him walking down a row of town homes, but this could be the way he perceives cells.
In the last episode of Season 1, Krista's ex stated that Elliot was being investigated, but they did not have enough evidence against him as Elliot proxied through Estonia - and they wouldn't be able to get that as evidence unless the government of Estonia fell, and it did.
So, while they don't know who is behind 5/9, they may have brought in Elliot for the small petty hacks he may have done for his personal self interests.
I was surprised at the f-bombs. USA has been letting Suits letting get away with cussing for a while but they've never dropped an uncensored f-bomb.
You mean to tell me that in all of NYC, they couldn't find ten guys who could actually play basketball? Also, it's New York. People are just going to stand around while a guy dumps $5+ million on the ground and pours lighter fluid on it without someone trying to stop him and grab some of that money?
I really could have used a Samuel L Jackson recap of season 1 before watching these episodes.
I'd imagine it had something to do with the fact he was wearing the mask (at least at first).
In the fictional world, perhaps F-Society has a greater stature than we understand - and passerby didn't want to interfere. Or perhaps people didn't think it was real money.
I agree - I don't think people would pass it up in reality.
Good choice of music in this scene (as well as the series overall).
