    technical standards

Have you seen Mr.Robot? What do you think of it? It seems to break them when the protagonist feels uneasy, so that the viewer does too.

I have seen Mr. Robot. Hmmm... this will be a nuanced answer....

There are things about Mr. Robot that I love. There are things about Mr. Robot that I feel like are lacking. My thoughts on Mr. Robot could be a good one for one of these "Steve's musings on film" posts.

The creators certainly break some rules... they "break the 4th wall" on a regular basis, and in a very in-your-face sort of way. But they're far from the first to do this. They also run fake adverts for E-Corp occasionally - so that if you're watching it on DVR - you might miss them.
