Mainstream TV is pushing hard for viewers. Just like the “leaked” Supergirl pilot, I’m sure this is an official “unofficial leak” too.

Let me just cut to the chase and say I liked this, especially the first half, which had some bits that reminded me of Paddy Chayefsky‘s Network. Other bits reminded me of the movie Pi. That’s not to say any of this is derivative, but I could see what impressed writer Esmail.

Surprisingly …

… the star is not Mr. Robot!

It’s difficult to know where the hell this will go as a series …

… and whether or not what it teases in this pilot is just a hook to draw people in or something writer Esmail has real feelings about.

What I’m not in the mood for is something that takes the concerns of the day and whitewashes them through a mainstream TV lens, anesthetizing viewers.

But I want to see at least the next episode. This held my interest, had some surprises, and dialogue in the beginning that had me laughing out loud.

    Is it the truth or a truth sandwiched between lies. I want to believe that people will realise the truth of our societies and one day say enough!!!!!!!
