SPOILER WARNING: We talk about a LOT of spoilers for Mr. Robot. If you haven’t seen the entire season and are even thinking of watching it, skip the review! It runs from 15:20 to 30:20 in the episode.
In this episode, we watch the trailer for The Big Short starring Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, and Ryan Gosling (and Cody tries to explain economics to Dustin). We also watch trailers for Demolition with Jake Gyllenhaal and the new live action version The Jungle Book. Plus we review Black Mass starring Johnny Depp and talk about What We’re Watching.
CORRECTION: In this episode, Cody uses the term “collateralization” when discussing investments in subprime home mortgages in the early-to-mid-2000s. What he meant to say was “securitization.” He regrets the error.
