Last week’s promo for last night’s Mr. Robot called it an episode like no other, and while that’s true the idea that Derek Lawrence could claim it was “something that only Mr. Robot could pull off” when Buffy did it twenty years ago next month is such serious sycofancy (yes, that’s my portmanteau of “sycophancy” and “fan”) that Entertainment Weekly should be ashamed to have published it. While the episode was very good, I wish more attention were going to the previous one, which as a sort of Mr. Robot by way of the Coen Brothers easily was one of the best episodes in the show’s run.
