Critic Consensus: Sam Esmail's impeccably directed premiere returns Mr. Robot in dizzyingly terrific form, weaving Eliot's unraveling along with the country's in a compelling, high-stakes look at psyche and society.

Even as Elliot seems to wrestle some control back for himself, he continues to burn the world around him.
The two-hour premiere does a brisk job of re-setting the pieces on the board and introducing new ones.
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.
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.
