You may think that Mr. Robot isn’t a show that wouldn’t lend itself to a gag reel— that its tone of ultra-high tension and askew, unhinged introspection would make misplaced boom mics and jokes about farts more off-putting than funny. And you would be right.
Don’t get me wrong. This video magical. Just maybe not in the way a gag reel is usually intended. Every chuckle is more disconcerting than actually enjoyable, as if masked fsociety members are going to burst in at any moment and shame/murder you at any moment. And really, I can’t think of anything more fitting for this show.
