Game of Thrones taught me that any show can be ruined by the last season.

I remember saying to my friend that it would take serious effort for Game of Thrones to drop the ball right at the end. But drop the ball they did.

Mr. Robot is my favorite show right now. I really really hope they know how to stick the landing.

is that Benioff & Weiss were not nearly as smart or talented as Sam Esmail. So once they extended out beyond the material it was a shit show. That and the reduced episode order was the recipe for that disaster.

I fell off the Mr. Robot train after season 2 largely because it's just too much for me given the times we live in (I don't fuck w/ Black Mirror for the same reason) but I hope they can close out strong and even without a classic final season I don't see it falling off a cliff like Thrones did.

i mean, in the current climate, i can understand your hesitation.
but comparing Mr. Robot to Game Of Thrones makes zero sense.
GoT was a very specific case study on how its particular show runners, whilst exceedingly great at *adapting* George's existing story, really had no fucking clue what to do once they exhausted the source material. even that last line i wrote makes no sense considering the thousands of pages of material they *didn't* use.

but Mr. Robot has been quality, through and through, with no such issues with its show runner, no slow decline & no dissing of the fan base by the creators. i understand some fans are still iffy on season 2, but i felt it stayed true to its own universe and tone. also, there is no 'source' material for Sam Esmail to fuck up, whereas with GoT it was a slow decline from around season 5 onward (some say earlier). it was obvious from GoT's tonal shifts, the reaaally bad dialogue & the nonsensical actions of the characters, that these motherfuckers didn't know what the fuck they were doing in the last few years of that show.

MR on the other hand, has a pretty definitive beginning, middle and end mapped out & it plans on sticking to it (GoT did not). we've had no collective reasons for mistrusting Esmail and his crew as much as we've had ANY reason to doubt Vince Gilligan and the BB/BCS crew. they got near-perfect batting averages, they respect their own mythology and therefore respect the FANS. the only thing that might fuck up Mr. Robot's swan song would be if they went full woke. wokeness is the main virus that's infected most of my favourite IPs in recent years, shoehorning political agenda at the cost of story, narrative and characters. thankfully MR hasn't succumbed to that infection, but if there's *anything* that could ruin this show, it's that shit right there.

But in the grand scheme of things it was flawlessly done. Season 3 is not only great but afterwards if you go back to season 2, you'll see how important it was in setting up major plot developments and twists. A lot of season 2 doesn't seem to make sense but later they build to so many "A-ha!" moments.

I thought season 1 was great, season 2 was meh and season 3 was incredible. Then when I rewatched it with my wife, seeing the clever way that season 2 set everything up, it became my favorite show.

It just might not be for you, but I would say give it another chance and push through season 2. It'll be a worthwhile trip.

Has it been that long of a break? Or is it just unmemorable (maybe just to me)?

I mean, I really enjoy the show. I just can't remember a lot of major plot points

i think it just goes to show complex the writing/plot of modern TV can be

i'll definitely need to watch a recap before i start the new season, because i've also forgotten much of what was going down
