So, are Elliot, Angela, and Tyrell actual robots?

Blade Runner is referenced a lot this season. A clock from the movie is even in a scene in a previous episode this season.

Tyrell seems like a direct reference to the Tyrell Corporation.

The weird ass test they give Angela is a lot like the test administered to look for robots, the Voight Kampf.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Umc9ezAyJv0 - here is a link to the scene

White Rose mentioned a few things. Making things real - depending on your definition of real (AI). Being past her "expiration date."

Elliot and Angela react very cold and robotic-like, obviously, but I think the "multiple personalities" is a kindof "multi-processor" type thing going on.

I think Angela has the same thing going on that Elliot does, if you notice the switch between her first season and second season personas, it's almost like letting one side of her take more control.

Season 2 is different, but it's still very good. I think Season 3 will determine how good Season 2 is, since there was a lot of character building and a slowly simmering plot.

Season 1 was excellent though. One of the best things ever on TV, even.

I hope to catch up on S2 at some point... but I found too many shows to try to watch this year. I've culled one so far, but I really need to be more selective... And likely tptb will make a few decision for me... not all shows can make it, right?
