Critic Reviews for Mr. Robot Season 2

There's a slow build in progress with this season... but Esmail's deft touch with the blend of reality and fantasy remains as engrossing as ever.

Jul 11, 2016 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Remains one of the most dizzying, intoxicating, challenging shows on television, a gripping look at mental illness and brilliance run amok... It's a show that poses Big Questions and dares to leave them hanging.

It's an incredibly cynical view of the world but it may be one of the most realistic depictions of our existence, even if it's the parts most of us never see.

Esmail is pulling a Fargo instead of a True Detective, taking his show into surprising new directions while holding onto some of the stuff that made us love it in the first place.

For all that Mr. Robot invites us to think about global financial issues, the unchecked power of technology, and imminent societal collapse, it also demonstrates just how efficiently capitalism co-opts all critiques.

In the universe of Mr. Robot, which is even darker and more joyless in season two, it increasingly feels like the audience might be Elliot's enemy.

Jul 13, 2016 | Full Review…

Speaking of what makes the show, it still carries the cultural markers, Internet Age jibes, and background score peculiarities that made it a breakout hit last summer.

Aug 28, 2018 | Full Review…

With each passing episode, it has become more of a chore to decipher what's going on amidst all the show's form-bending tricks and gimmicks.

Aug 27, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Beyond the theories about its argument, social criticism and its ambition to be a generational series, Mr. Robot marks differences by the original use of visual composition. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 10, 2018 | Full Review…

A lot of this could have been corrected with some sort of amazing season wrapup, but unfortunately, our worst fears about the show were proven true.

Jun 20, 2018 | Full Review…

To be sure, Malek's physically wasted and psychologically strained performance as Elliot is a sturdy foundation for excellent drama.

Oct 8, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Mr. Robot is a perfect example of a show that is referential, alluding to other works without being overly derivative or the least bit stale.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Robot: Season 2

    Incredible, fantastic show.
  • Jun 10, 2020
    Still amazing. I found it slightly slower than the first one, but still keeping graciously up with the precedent season.

    A thrilling continuation of an already near perfect show, with more experimentation and more liberation on behalf of Esmail who was given the role of directing every episode. This season digs deeper into the characters surrounding Elliot and builds a world that is arguably the best grounded approach to a potential future yet to be captured on television. Once again highly recommend.

    No esperaba ver ese giro en la trama al final, tuve que volver a ver esta temporada para entender todo
  • Jan 08, 2020
    The most captivating and personally touching television show I've ever watched. Rami Malek is brilliant. Everyone is brilliant.
  • Jan 01, 2020
    Slow and confusing to begin with, but as time goes on and the plot unfolds this season proves why Mr. Robot is the best show on TV. Worth persevering.
  • Dec 30, 2019
    Visually amazing, really celebral. There are pacing issues, and character choices that are just plain weird, but it continues as it should: it is still about Elliot's personal, internal emotional journey, which is the main thing that matters in this show. And it's great.
  • Dec 28, 2019
    a bit slower and more in depth than the first but a must watch.
  • Dec 26, 2019
    The best Season of Mr Robot, Absolutely Gem
