The two-hour premiere does a brisk job of re-setting the pieces on the board and introducing new ones.

Is it even possible for a form of popular entertainment to imagine life after capitalism in a positive way? This is the question at the back of my mind, and one that will keep me watching this series.

Now that Mr. Robot is returning for a second season, it succeeds in keeping the blistering pace and high-stakes momentum that its first act set.

This double-sized premiere really felt like a slow burn entry into this new summer run. Not that Mr. Robot was ever a fact-paced show, but there was a more methodical approach here.

For me, the most interesting character in this returning double bill is Angela.

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 1 was an immaculately directed, often shocking return to the dizzying world of Elliot Alderson. All in all, it was everything I hoped the second season premiere would be.

The episode was dedicated to depicting how what comes after a major transformation is never what you expected it to be.

These opening scenes play with the viewers sense of reality in that realm, and only when you see President Obama on screen talking about the hack and restoration of society, do we know that life has carried on since fsociety uprooted everything.
