i think everything i have to say about capitalism is somewhere in mr robot

i've watched it too many times now i just want to love elliot

Show thread

mr robot, mental illness 

he needs an understanding momlike friend instead of a population of judgmental assholes pushing him further into madness and enabling harmful behavior. he has no reliable reference to anything, no one to trust, nowhere to feel safe. of course i love darlene too she's just doing her best. and characters friendly to elliot. anyway all i feel for him is empathy and that is important. fight club didn't get my empathy

mr robot, mental illness 

@CobaltVelvet He's too fucked up for me too watch; there's too much psychological bla for me in that series, and not enough 1337 h4x0r1n9. I'm not even sure if I continued watching after that musical episode with all the singing.

@tim @CobaltVelvet The, uhh, the musical episode? Which one is that?

mr robot, mental illness 

@2015_05_09 @CobaltVelvet The one where they're driving around in a car with the whole family, I believe? I can't remember the whole thing. It might have been one or two seasons ago already.

@tim @2015_05_09 yeah that one is a little bit weird and boring but it's only one single episode. imo one experimental thing like that is okay per season

1337 h4x0r1n9 shit bore me in movies though, like it's okay but fast-forward it huh if i wanted to stare at a shell for an hour i'd go do that. mr robot makes it somewhat realistic without zooming too much on it so you don't see the boring pixels and with correct enough jargon

@tim @2015_05_09 (and the second and third seasons are quite different, with a different pace and mood. you can feel the world going to shit with it)

@CobaltVelvet @2015_05_09 It was mostly the psychological aspect where I got the feeling you'd get if staring at a CLI for an hour in a TV show I guess. I cared more about the rest of the story but him being fucked up all the time kinda felt like it was holding that back. Could very well just be me, je sais.

@CobaltVelvet @2015_05_09 It's all a matter of taste. Otherwise we'd all be watching the same dumb show. :P
