Critic Reviews for 403 Forbidden

Thankfully, "Forbidden," written by Courtney Looney, features a simple premise and a compelling guest turn, and showcases a few different shades from our bug-eyed protagonist.

[W]hile Mr. Robot might not be a hopeful show, I do think it's trying to suggest that real, human connections are what might get us through the death throes of capitalism and an increasingly hostile, divided world.

Titled "403 Forbidden..." this installment of "Mr. Robot" has both the series's protagonist and antagonist putting themselves at risk in romance's name.

This episode is only partially successful at finding that Christmas spirit; alternating between darkness and light, it ends up somewhere between the two.

A full hour about the origins of Whiterose would have been worthwhile. At the top of Mr. Robot Season 4 Episode 3, it seemed like that's what we were getting, but this show loves to play with expectations.

[W]here last week's episode focused on grief, this one takes a timeout to explore the necessity of human connection.

And while this is not the most memorable of installments, it is certainly a high point for the series in terms of originality.
