A skinny, pale superhero with way too much on his mind potentially gives the USA network its first big buzz, social media sensation.

It's a mildly interesting fantasy, but the story has too many holes to feel really compelling.

Jun 24, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

USA's Mr. Robot might be the best show in the history of the network.

Jun 23, 2015 | Full Review…

A thought-provoking, exciting, in-your-face hacker drama.

Jun 23, 2015 | Full Review…

[Rami] Malek is an actor worth watching, though, and he is well-suited to his character's quirks.

USA Network has already got the ratings. Now it wants the critical cred. Done.

What's great about Mr. Robot, and what one hopes is not lost in its second season, is its tone.

Aug 22, 2018 | Full Review…

But the first thing the show will have to do is get Elliot's brain back on the right track after all of Season 1's revelations, and that won't be easy. But you will be watching.

Jun 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Painstaking in its photography and musical choices, Esmail's show pulls off the tricky feat of telling a gripping story about keyboard tappers that doesn't make computer geeks cringe.

Aug 26, 2015 | Full Review…

It's an engaging watch - tense and fast-paced. Definitely one to check out.

Apr 19, 2017 | Full Review…

The result is a twisting, turning mystery that leaves you asking, "Where is my mind?"

Sep 12, 2017 | Full Review…

From the very first frame, Mr. Robot introduced itself as something unique and totally involving.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Robot: Season 1

    I had high hopes for this. By episode three I was starting to get the feeling that the writers were running some kind of plotline lottery. I initially liked the idea the audience is a part of Elliot's delusions. However his asides quickly become irritating as they add to an already ridiculous amount of exposition. Although I love some of the individual performances, the writers had a nightmare with this one. I gave up watching series one on episode eight, with just two left to complete. I couldn't see it out, and I felt frustration for the cast, and irritation at the writers. For me there was one overdone revelation too many. As with all of the reveals in Mr Robot, the one that broke the camels back came with none of the required nuance of backstory, plot credibility or even a justifiable reason. Overall, slick hacker speak and a competent, even endearing cast are not enough to rescue a writing team who clearly got bogged down and had to write themselves out of multiple corners. Thinly developed characters, too much tell, not enough show, clunky narrative arcs and no redeeming magic, An excellent opportunity wasted. There is literally no story line that could make me watch more.

    Good series start, kinda edgy but it is the charm
  • Aug 23, 2020
    The first season of the show is stunning, a must watch for everyone who likes a show that'll mess with your head . I couldn't stop watching this show , I stayed up until 5 in the morning just finishing the season, just couldn't take my eyes off the screen. This show is one of the best shows I've seen so far.

    Mr. Robot is a very CREATIVE, unique, emotional, mind-blowing and shocking tv show that is filled with some plot twists that will blow your mind, I was personally so shocked of how amazing this tv show is. Season 1 of Mr Robot is one of its best seasons and it's rare to find a tv show that the first season of it is one of its best, Mr Robot even starts off with an amazing episode and that's episode 1 season 1, an incredible episode that I really enjoyed. Season 2 is its worst and it was really boring especially the first 4 or 5 episodes of the season. It will make you think the show is just ruined and the next seasons will be boring and the story will just be boring as well. Felt like the whole season wasn't even necessary but I would call season 2 that it was good compared to the other 3 seasons of the show that were excellent, that's why I said it's the show's worst season. There were a few episodes that saved season 2 and I enjoyed watching them. Season 3 and 4 were absolutely shocking and mind-blowing, some episodes in these two seasons, I can talk about them for hours. eps3.4_runtime-err0r.r00 (Season 3 Episode 5) was an absolute masterpiece, the fact that it was a "one-shot" is just amazing, you are there in every single thing that happens without cutting from a scene to the other, the camera never cuts. And it's a thing that I have seen in a very few movies but have never seen in any tv show. These things make Mr Robot a "unique" tv show. Mr robot can make you feel nervous, the whole episode without having any conversations or anything to say in the episode and yes I'm talking about the amazing episode called: 405 Method Not Allowed (Season 4 Episode 5) that doesn't have any single conversations in it except for 2 sentences maybe, one in the beginning and one at the very end. The final episode that I'll talk about is: 407 Proxy Authentication Required (Season 4 Episode 7), this episode itself is just a freakin "MASTERPIECE". An episode that has an amazing music score, an episode that has an amazing cinematography and colors that match with what Eliot is feeling. An episode that has an amazing cast: Rami Malek (Elliot Alderson), Christian Slater (Mr. Robot), Gloria Reuben (Krista Gordon) and Elliot Villar (Fernando Vira). This episode isn't just the best episode that I have seen in Mr Robot or any tv show, it is one the best things that I have seen in my whole life. Hats off. Mr Robot's amazing cinematography is a thing that I have never seen in any other movie or tv show before, and if you have seen the show you'll know what I'm talking about. The music score was excellent and it builds up feelings inside of you, the customs were so cool, the black hoodie of Elliot, the shorts of Darlene, the $6,000 suit of Tyrell and the hat with the jacket of Mr Robot. The script and conversations were so deep and genius. And finally the cast of Mr Robot, I really don't know what to say about this part because all of them are literally amazing and I can't talk about all of them or I'll spoil a lot of stuff, I'll just talk about Rami Malek, he gave us a performance that's one of the best, his acting was so very deep, he acts with his face, eyes and everything, it was just shocking. There are a few stuff that I really wanted an answer to and that's the thing that made me want to watch a little more of Mr Robot and I'm talking about an episode or maybe 15 more minutes or something, unfortunately, I can't say what they are because i don't want to spoil anything but for those who watched Mr Robot will defiantly get me. The ending of Mr Robot is very emotional, I really expected something else though, something bigger especially that the show had a lot of plot twists that were shocking but I wouldn't call the ending a very bad one I would just say that I expected more. Mr Robot is a masterpiece and for sure one of the best tv shows that ever exists. Great job to every single one who worked on it and to Sam Esmail, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
