Thoughts about the new TV program Mr. Robot....
It won’t be long before SNL is doing a parody of the main character: big, bulging eyes, wears a black hooded sweat shirt jacket with zipper, hands in pockets, mouth agape, with a blank look on his face at all times. It would be easy to imitate him.
He’s a hero hacker, and he keeps a CD file of those bad guys that he has bested. I like the way he thinks strange things in his head and how he spaces out while people are talking to him, because I also do that. I can identify.
During one of the slow scenes, you know, the ones with no dialog, where they show each character individually doing something, they played a Neil Diamond song - "If you go away." Whaaaaaa? Had nothing to do with anything. They must've bought the song for cheap. It was lost on me.
The show is all about computers. I’m on a computer 40 hours a week at work, plus the time I spend on it at home, and the only thing I know about computers is reboot and it will fix just about every problem. I'm easily confused with tech stuff.
Another thing, they must’ve used the word “dat” a hundred times. Seriously, why not say “data”. All they have to do is add the sound of "ah" at the end.
I don't really care for the series, but I haven't given up on it yet. The main guy, Rami Malex, kind of reminds me of Marty Feldman in Young Frankenstein.
I leave you with a quote from W.C. Fields: "I am free of all prejudice. I hate everyone equally."
