Critic Reviews for Mr. Robot Season 1

All Critics (60) | Top Critics (34)

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

Jun 24, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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.

Jun 23, 2015 | Full Review…

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

Jun 23, 2015 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

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.

    Really that's all dude
  • Mar 23, 2021
    It has an Interesting plot but lots of normalization of junkies a.k.a smart people. I couldn't disagree more
  • Mar 18, 2021
    Mr. Robot is one of the few series that starts with a premise but manages to change the mood and plot so perfectly that it follows the course of history, full of twists and very well directed
  • Mar 14, 2021
    I just fell in love. Picture is awesome as it even can be.

    This is how to introduce an character. The pilot is one of the best pilots in the history of television. Rami Malek proves to be one of the best actors of this decade with his fantastic performance as Elliot. The Mr. Robot reveal is one of the greatest twists in television history. My Rating - 9.2/10

    Mr. Robot is one of the best TV series I've ever seen. I consider it to be on par with the likes of Breaking Bad. It blew my goddamn mind. It's original, unique, and unpredictable. There isn't any other show like this. The story is excellent and you're always wondering what will happen next. I cared about pretty much all the characters. Solid performances from the actors across the board, especially from Rami Malek. Mr. Robot starts on a high note, continues on a high note, and ends on a high note. The quality and the consistency never falter at all. I fucking love it. Go watch it right now.

    A phenominally constructed show with twists which are both mindblowingly unexpected, and entirely believable. I'd strongly recommend every season of this show.

    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.
