Illusion of Choice.
After watching Mr. Robot’s S02E08 and heard Portia Doubleday sing Everybody Wants to Rule the World in a karaoke bar I got totally hooked on the tune and just couldn’t let it go from my head. And since the whole thing started with someone else singing the song and it was not the original Tears For Fears version, I started searching for even more renditions of this track.
This is how I came across the 2014 Spotify Landmark recording of the song with the original band just 30 years after and it’s an awesome video to watch, also the guys just totally kill it even 30 years later. This video is right here below, and then there are some more covers after it that I found interesting.

Oh. My. God. Seriously. This pilot was just such an insanely powerful piece that I haven’t seen anything like for years on television. In all aspects there is. Cast, acting, story, non-cliché, characters, music, narrative, sounds, editing. Everything. This is a 10/10 start, and I just can’t wait for the second episode.
Edit: about 15 minutes passed since I watched the show and dug up all content about it online. It blows my mind with thoughts and inspiration. I love this feeling so much.
