It has to be said …
Sometimes, there’s nothing like some music to help an evening go with …
Well, if not a bang … then certainly a …
If that make’s any sense?
At any rate, as I type? I have some music on.
Brian Eno’s Ambient 2: The Plateaux of Mirror, so you know.
OK, my listening habits?
Possibly aren’t something that’s going to grab you.
The fact is, I wanted to add a little local colour to what could have been an otherwise boring introduction.
That, at heart?
And caught another two episodes, tonight.
Episode 5 — eps1.4_3xpl0its.wmv — sees Eliot (Rami Malek) acting as
fsociety’s frontman in the attempt to hack Evil Corp’s secure backup site: called Steel Mountain for a reason.
They hope to wire-up a modified Raspberry Pi to one of the site’s thermostats, in order to melt the company’s back-up tapes.
Meanwhile? Meanwhile, Angela (Portia Doubleday) has split up from her partner, Ollie: and moves in with her father … only to find him very supportive of her life.
Episode 6 — eps1.5_br4ve-trave1er.asf sees Eliot coerced into cracking Vera out of jail: as Vera has managed to kidnap Shayla.
Whilst Angela searches for more information about her mothers death: and Tyrell manoeuvres his way up another corporate rung.
Good … ?
Do you mean the album — I’m now playing Ambient 1: Music for Airports — or the series?
Album first, quickly: yep: it’s good.
Interesting to both listen to and ignore at the same time.
Episodes five and six?
Superb: the story is rolling along: AND, in killing Shayla, showing us exactly the danger Eliot and the
fsocietygang are in.
Next chance I get, I’ll be writing more about Mr Robot … !
