Elliot Alderson: Did my revolution just bury our minds instead of freeing them? Encrypting Evil Corp's data was meant to empower us. Instead it left us powerless, scaring us into even more submission. I am not going to get rid of the invisible hand. Turned it into a fist that punched us in the dick. And like a botnet, the fear I created is spreading so fast, it's practically airborne. It's swallowed us whole, digested us, and now we're stuck in its asshole, waiting to be dumped out.

A great starter to Season 3, but...
6 January 2018 | by adam-waldoSee all my reviews

Compared to the slow pace of its earlier season, season 3 immediately redeems itself with the fast pace first episode, 'Power Saver Mode'. The characters have become more intense - one terrified to the point of breakdown - by the results of their actions from season 2, inherently providing a much more entertaining show which has you hooked from the beginning. My favourite scene being a brief look at underground hackers competing against each other in a part-club-part-LAN-party style venue. I'd love to see more of this culture within the series.

As another reviewer has already mentioned however, writer and director Sam Esmail has decided to throw an immense amount of unnecessary political bias into this episode, by associating the collapse of the entire world economy with Donald/Ivanka Trump, Fox News, and other conservatives, who - along with Elliot - have inherently kickstarted the entire downfall of human civilisation. These types of references are ridiculous at best, and destroy what is essentially a good show. The writers would be better off sticking to what is essentially a fictional story and not adding in propaganda for the sake of pleasing their Hollywood-bubble buddies.
