At times the world can seem like an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough; and what might seem like a series of unfortunate events, may in fact be the first steps of a journey.
Sam Esmail was teasing big “Guest star” for this episode and it turned out to be ALF. Why not, right? The opening scene of each episode of ‘Mr. Robot’ season 2 has really been one of the best surprises on television this summer. You’re never really sure what you’re going to get. They’ve turned the opening into featuring scenes that typically don’t have any direct impact on the episode air but are world-building scenes. Maybe it’s the lengthy scene with Elliot (Rami Malek) and his sister Darlene (Carly Chaikin) bonding over their favorite horror movie from childhood where we learn of the origins of Mr. Robot, or a lengthy look into the background how how F-Society formed or in the case of this week’s episode “Master/Slave” you get an appearance by ALF.
The opening of this episode and it’s steadfast commitment to looking like a broadcast from the early 90′s brought me so much joy. There was an obsessive level of detail. It was broadcast in standard def format even on HD channels. They aired real ads from the early 90′s as well as fake ones for companies like E- Corp and even aired a unique opening credits. It all harkened back to ‘Too Many Cooks’ but in all the right kind of ways.
any studio ghibli movies are great especially if u want something calm with nice art + eragon is one of my favorite childhood movies its got a LOTR kind of vibe to it and if you love dragons you’ll lov it
