  :lol I'm not sure why this show isn't getting more props. Maybe because it's on USA? It's so well done, I hope it's not a one and done show and that it gets a few seasons.

I thought it had already been renewed for a second season even before the first episode aired.

I was also gonna mention Suits. That show is seriously awesome. Burn Notice was cool, but stayed on too long. Covert Affairs started a little hokey maybe, but if it was on HBO or Cinemax, the last couple seasons would have been a serious spy drama. White Collar was one of my favorite shows ever.

I have no idea about American TV networks but from what I gather, ABC is starting to gain a bit more traction amongst as of late.  This is coming from my media studies lecturer :lol

DUDE! Knew it  :metal This show keeps getting better and better. Bummer there's only one episode left.

Just looked it up and you are correct. Hours before its debut episode USA renewed it for at least (10) episodes in season 2.

Holy shit dudes I love this show. But I've only seen two episodes and I really wanna support it but I can't find it anywhere legal. What in the hell does this air on and does it air anywhere streaming on the net that's legit?

I have been shotgunning this show. I am through episode 7. From what I understand, I need 2 more to catch up, then the finale.

This is so good.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Just read the season finale will be delayed by USA Network due to a scene that is similar to the shooting that took place today.

Imagine in my youth, if I saw what I saw on TV and did what I saw on TV?


I'd be the Acme Anvil Serial Killer.

Or the Frying Pan In The Face Killer.

Or the teen WHO HAD TO DRIVE HIS CAR AT 55 AT ALL TIMES SO NOTHING WOULD BLOW UP!

My brother told me that he read an article online where the creator of the series says he has a 5 Season story arc "plan".

If each season can maintain the 'feel' and excitement as this one.....that's gonna be a neat show.

I would be shocked if it could be maintained over that period of time.

I would also be thrilled.

Didn't like the finale in particular. The only thing I enjoyed in the last couple of episodes was the scene with the woman with the baby in front of their house.

I'm gonna go with WTF? So many unanswered questions at this point, I'm not very satisfied to be honest. Other than that, it was a pretty good episode showing the really dark and brutal side of corporate leadership.

Remember that the first season is basically just the first act, so there will obviously be loads of unanswered questions and open threads. Esmail said he has a 4 or 5 season plan.

I re-watched some of the scenes I liked most in the finale. That scene I referenced up is still holding up as one of the best, most ominous and discomforting scene I can remember watching in recent times. And as amazing as the acting and dialogue is in it, I think what brings it over the top is the sound attached to it. Simply genius.

Apparently there was a bonus teaser scene after the credits. I didn't see it first time around. If you didn't see it go online.....it's out there. Seems White Rose and the new CEO of evil Corp. are in cahoots with one another?

Finally caught the finale.  Wow, lots of questions remaining.

That suicide was pretty gnarly.  Reminiscent of Budd Dwyer's suicide.

This scene really bolsters my suspicion that Elliot is Tyrell also. When she speaks to him in French and he doesn't understand her.....she starts to cry....they way it all felt. Also, that scene where Tyrell and Mr. Robot were alone in Tyrells car was odd also.

I was thinking that pretty early on in the episode, having not considered it before. Then again, the reactions of the Allsafe boss whose name I can't remember wouldn't make sense when he meets with Tyrell (and later when he tries to meet him after he's already been fired) if he was really Elliot. So I'm not sure it stacks up.

So I'm not sure it stacks up.

Those two instances are hard to get by....I was trying to figure out how that scene when Elliot stopped in to see Tyrell would have 'worked' if he were Tyrell. Unfortunately I've deleted that episode already so I can't re-watch it again to hear that secretary's wording, but it's a tough one to get past. I think you could possibly explain away the Allsafe boss knowing Tyrell also as Tyrell being 'hands on' at Allsafe or something? I don't know?

Might be looking a little too hard for it to fit...
