All Critics (39) | Top Critics (18)

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.

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.

Even in a TV landscape boasting a huge population of anti-heroes, Mr Robot stands alone in its determination that no one should look to its lead character to guide them out of the darkness.

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.

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.

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.

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]

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.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Robot: Season 2

½

The mind-bending and provocative series Mr. Robot continues into a second season of shocking twists and dark conspiracies. With its Fight Club twist blown, the series finds new ways of questioning reality and of exploring how deep the fsociety rabbit hole goes. As Elliot tries to gain control over his mental illness and find out what happened to Tyrell, Darlene takes control of fsociety and goes on the offensive against E Corp. and the FBI. Craig Robinson and Grace Gummer join the cast and play interesting characters that add new dynamics to the series. However, the stylistic directing tries too hard to be artistic and ends up being extremely distracting. Also, the episodes' extended length format doesn't really work; as they kind of arbitrarily begin and end, without clear themes and plots that separate them. Still, the writers do an extraordinary job at building suspense and intrigue. While Season 2 of Mr. Robot isn't as good as the first, it's still incredibly edgy and presents a unique vision.

After a fantastic first season, Mr. Robot continues everything that we loved about it and does it beautifully so.
