TV Show Reviews
Robot" review by Suzanne
Series Premiere Wednesday June 24 10/9C on USA Network
They really need to stop making so many good TV shows
because I just don't have enough time to watch them all!
Plus, most of them get canceled, so then I get feel really
bad and get disappointed. Such is the life of a TV addict.
This one taps into everything I love and believe in: The
internet, the hatred of corporations and the 1%, and
mistrust of same, the hatred of the right wing and the love
of the little guy and of the hacker who saves the day. Oh,
and Christian Slater! Who's always great.
The show is about a hacker who works for a company by
day, solving security problems, but in his spare time, he
uses his hacking skills to shut down child pornographers and
others who are doing terrible things. He's very messed-up,
though, due to his bad childhood and horrible past,
including the death of his father. He has a lot of anger at
the system, although he's in therapy. He uses drugs, too,
like similarly screwed-up TV characters such as Gregory
When he's called upon to stop an attempt to hack the evil
corporation, he ends up getting involved with this group
that's doing the hacking. Things take quite a turn for him.
Along the way, he helps defend both his good friend and his
psychiatrist, plus he gets a new pet. It's a very odd show,
but also very appealing and entertaining.
There's just something very odd about a huge corporation
like NBCUniversal making a TV show about a rebel, a bit of
an anarchist, who's rebelling against society and huge
corporations in particular...
Check it out, they're showing the first episode online.
