USA's The Purge has an immensely watchable premise, but lacks the dumb fun of the movies
"The problem," says Pilot Viruet, "is that The Purge, even when it drops in these silly moments and (unintentionally) hilarious dialogue, remains deadset on having an overly-serious tone. The series half-heartedly grapples with the idea of wealth and classism ('the rich don’t kill each other'), mentions how other countries don’t need the Purge, touches upon the effects of lingering grief (albeit through a Purge-obsessed cult), and even has some thoughts on the glass ceiling — among others. But it fails to remember one thing: The Purge, both the franchise and the fictional event, is just so incredibly dumb. There are plenty of television shows and movies that do a fantastic job of depicting US politics, or how the rich screw over the poor, or how sometimes you have to make a deal with the devil in order to do something good. The Purge was never going to be thoughtful enough to become one of those series —it’s simply not supposed to be! — and would’ve done far better if it gleefully leaned into its nonsensical side and exhibited a little self-awareness. Often, I find myself watching a television show and wishing it had more intelligent goals; <i>The Purge might be the first time I wanted the opposite."

Mr. Robot's four-season run makes sense
Source: The Ringer
Sam Esmail's USA series was initially planned out to be a feature film, so the shorter length makes sense, says Miles Surrey. "Assuming the fourth and final season lives up to the near-unanimous critical praise of the first and third seasons—and for the sake of fans, answers some lingering questions and provides clarity about the show’s increasingly heavy science-fiction vibes—Mr. Robot will be ending on its own terms without succumbing to any extended series slumps," says Surrey. "As sad as Mr. Robot’s ending may initially be, it’s as good a reminder as ever that a show ending on the earlier side—with a plan in place—is a far superior option than one going on for so long that it loses the plot (sometimes literally) and fades into obscurity."

Mr. Robot to end with an expanded Season 4

Christian Slater recently hinted that Season 4 would be the last for Sam Esmail's USA hacker drama that stars Rami Malek. Now The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Mr. Robot will end in 2019 with an episode order that has been expanded to 12 episodes, with production beginning this fall. When Season 4 was originally announced in December 2017, it was given an eight-episode order. "Since day one, I’ve been building toward one conclusion — and in breaking the next season of Mr. Robot, I have decided that conclusion is finally here," Esmail, who has also been busy working with Julia Roberts on Amazon's Homecoming, said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "Everyone on the creative team, including the amazing people at USA and UCP, didn't want to say goodbye, but we ultimately have too much respect for Elliot's journey to extend past its inevitable ending. Therefore, season four will serve as the final chapter of the Mr. Robot story. To fans of the show: thank you for the past three years, and I can't wait to share this exciting final season with you."

Carrie Coon recalls being The Sinner's No. 2 choice
Coon was planning to take a six-month break to care for her baby when the actress who was to join her husband Tracy Letts on Season 2 fell through. “As always happens in Hollywood, that actress said no, and a week later they came to me," she tells Indiewire, adding: “They probably hate me telling that story. I’m supposed to be like, ‘Well, I was their No. 1 choice,’ but you’re never their No. 1 choice...Tracy and I always joke that if they’re calling us, they must be down to five or six (on the wish list). But really, somebody had somebody in mind and that didn’t work out, and some other people had me in mind, and it did.”

Christian Slater expects Mr. Robot to end with Season 4
"Yeah, Season 4, and I believe that will be the last season," Slater tells Collider, adding that creator Sam Esmail "always said it was going to be somewhere in that zone, and he didn’t want to go further than what he could creatively contribute to that storyline. So, I think that Season 4 will be it."
