    The pilot is out on Hulu and other places.



    Fingers crossed for Christian Slater that he gets a hit at long last.

    I just watched the 1 hour pilot,, and have to say, wow I am really impressed.

    It's been a long time since I watched such a good first episode of a new TV show. Well done to USA Network..

    Couldn't resist when I saw the title of this show and its logo... :o:o:o:D:);)

    Excellent pilot (strongest I've seen in quite a while).


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,533 ✭✭✭don ramo


    now that was a great pilot, almost felt like a film, hard to think it was only a hour long, it seemed way longer with the amount of story they managed to fit in,

    itll be interesting to see how the series goes, is that a good or bad meeting hes about to go into, yerman obviously knows he switched folders, there's something about him, id say hes probably the real CTO of evil corp, it would be great if we found out slaters character worked for him and had his boss set-up,

    im thinking most of the evil corp stuff we see is actually through elliotts perspective, isnt the company called E company, but even the news people were calling it evil corp, as the CTO was being taken into custody on the news, it said Evil Corp CTO

    i cant wait to see more, its gonna drive me mad waiting for episode 2

    USA does it again it looks like they have another summer hit on there hands.

    A really interesting pilot and that hooks you straight away looking forward to when it kicks off next month.

    Wow, just watched.

    For a pilot that was something else, really felt like a full length film. I just hope they can keep it at that standard for the rest of the season. Definately alot to look forward to.Be interesting to see if everything that happens, happens. Or is some of it in simply in his head....

    Ah, dammit I just read above it's a month till E2!

    *PS nice to see the ex-President got a position in the corporate sector after his ousting. :P

    Well that was great TV! The first new show Ive watched in ages and one I'll be sticking with.

    Question: Who was
    the guy in the room at the end
    ?

    were not 100% yet, but hes part of evil corp, he was the one who talked to elliott when they were touring, saying he was still using linux for his work computer, which immediately i thought this is probably a person to be careful of, and later when elliott had his report ready, he was gonna give the white one but switched to the blue one that framed yerman, it was that guy again that saw the switch, so he knows elliott hung his boss out to dry, but i dunno if he was his boss or just a figure head,

    some interesting dynamics going on in the show, going from the start the people talking in an office elliott was on about the top 1% of the top 1%, so i dunno if the people in the room at the end are them again and they are the top men,

    could the story be said to be recursive?

    at one point he said he trained himself to always hear E Corp as evil corp, so I wouldn't take it that everything we see where sombody says evil corp is his imagination, its just that word.

    looks like the Dell logo.

    yeah but the news on the tv had evil corp written across the screen, somehow i dont think the news could call it evil corp, theyd have to say E Corp

    it questions whether we are watching elliott exist in the world, or are we seeing the world through elliotts eyes,

    sorry he said its all his mind 'sees hears or reads', so even when not in his imagination he will hear evilcorp.

    Excellent pilot, definitely a show i will be watching with interest.

    well the whole show is generally from his POV, that word is always changed what ever the situation.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,133 ✭✭✭GottaGetGatt


    Wouldn't have known about this show only for seeing it earlier today.Very good pilot indeed.An long wait now though.

    Delighted to see Rami Malek on screen, he was excellent in the pacific.I cant remember the last time i watched something with Christian Slater in it.I think it was the movie Windtalkers years ago prob even longer , Broken Arrow....some film.

    Christian Slater has had a string of shows over the last few years that have all tanked in the first series, some of them were quite good such as Breaking in and My own worst enemy

    My heart sank when I realised it was him on the subway initially. Thankfully he's managed to rein-in the Slaterism's so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,419 ✭✭✭sioda


    Very impressed love the soundtrack. Hope Slater has a success this time.




  • Fantastic pilot. When is the full season starting? Absolutely fantastic Sorkinian-style rant.

    After watching it for 20 minutes, my reaction was; THAT WAS ONLY TWENTY EFFING MINUTES????????????

    Looks like the making of a great show.
    But why did they need Elliot to put the IP address into the .dat file - surely it would be easy for them to do it. Looks like he may be a fall-guy or maybe it was just a test to prove his loyalty?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,031 ✭✭✭Slippin Jimmy


    I think it was to prove his loyalty more than anything.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,657 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Also he changed the permissions on the file so only he could access it.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,052 ✭✭✭Taboola


    I've been looking for a new show to get stuck into for a while now and I think this will be it. Loved the pilot.

    That doesn't make sense. They were able to insert a note for him not to delete the file so why not put the IP address in?

    Either it was a test or the whole thing is a Fight Club type of situation.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,004 ✭✭✭BKtje


    The whole thing is screaming fight club situation to me from pretty much the get go, hopefully more to it than that. Loved it and shall definitely be putting it on my weekly watch list if that sort of quality continues.
