Mr. Robot Makes 'Best TV Episodes of the Century' List
When deciding the criteria for the list, The Ringer said they based their selections on submissions from the entire staff, with the stipulation that no TV show could have more than one episode on the list. The Top 100 not only recognizes the best of prestige TV, "but also encapsulates everything that television has to offer: drama, comedy, variety, reality, game shows, and lifestyle-focused programming."
Coming in at #57, "Kill Process" picks up after another standout Mr. Robot episode ("eps3.4_runtime-error.r00," which is edited to look like a single 45-minute shot a la Birdman) and was directed by show creator Sam Esmail and written by Kyle Bradstreet. In it, Elliot (Rami Malek) races to thwart a plan to blow up an Evil Corp building and the conflict between with Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) reaches new heights.
"Mr. Robot is one of the most visually distinct TV shows ever," writes The Ringer's Michael Baumann, "so almost every shot has the potential to be iconic. But the first half of Season 3 was a battle between Elliot and Mr. Robot, and in this episode the battle becomes physical, as Elliot flings himself around hallways and computer labs alternatively trying to stop the explosion and stop himself from stopping the explosion."
