News & Interviews 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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Mr. Robot: Season 2
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.
