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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

Audience Reviews for Mr. Robot: Season 1


Super Reviewer

Mr. Robot is not your ordinary summer thriller, thanks to it's intriguing premise, a profoundly complexive and morally questionable lead - with a breath-taking performance by Rami Malek - cohersive storytelling, merciless criticism upon modern society, and just the right amount of paranoia, inevitably becoming one of television's must-see content.

Daring and provocative, Mr. Robot is a stylistic techno thriller from USA. Season 1 follows a computer engineer named Elliot Alderson who's approached by a group of vigilante hackers called "fsociety" to help them bring down the banking conglomerate Evil Corp. in order to wipeout the public debt. However, Elliot is a psychologically disturbed young man who struggles to connect with other people and discern between fantasy and reality; which places fsociety's project in jeopardy. Narrated by Elliot, the show breaks the third wall in a rather interesting way; having him talk to the audience is if they're a voice in his head. Also, the series features a fairly strong cast , which includes Rami Malek, Carly Chaikin and Christian Slater; who all give extraordinary performances. Additionally, the directing is very Kurbrickian; setting an atmospheric tone that's sinister and foreboding. The writing is quite impressive as well; telling a complex story with a lot of subplot (though they don't always work out). Full of intrigue, Season 1 of Mr. Robot is incredibly intense and extremely engaging.

I’m still in total awe of Mr. Robot. As the first season of a series, it is so intelligently and expertly organized, made even more brilliant by its surrealist approach to reality and whether what you’re seeing is actually real. The unreliable narrator meets a brilliant group of hackers that seem to be an ode to Anonymous, the real Internet hacktivists. In Mr. Robot, the stakes are high: corporate debt elimination is a real threat, and this group of individuals could take down the entire economy with the press of a reset button, wiping away all loans and debt. Whether this is terrorism, anarchy, or bravery is for you to decide, all while deciphering its intoxicating, paranoid, mind-bending events. I can still truthfully say I haven’t recovered cognitively or emotionally from the finale.
