Mr. Robot Won Me Over
The show’s premise is about a computer
security technician who is also a hacker; he spends his free
time dishing out vigilante justice to some not-so-moral
individuals. Elliot, Played by Rami Malek, finds that his
work is not unnoticed when an elite hacker group tries to
recruit him to take down the very company that he is paid to
internal conflict, and the theme of destroying the status
quo of society, this show could be compared to
"Dexter"-meets-"Fight Club." I was originally drawn to this
show because of the rumors of how good the cinematography
was, and I kept watching because of how great the production
was. It felt like I was watching an HBO show. This
psychological thriller is bound to have you hooked by the
first episode. Creator Sam Esmail has declared via Twitter
that he has an ending for this show, and it should last 4-5
seasons. This is great news!
Mr Robot Premiered on USA Network on
June 24, 2015 and also stars Christian Slater.
MR. ROBOT follows Elliot (Rami Malek, “The
Pacific”), a young programmer who works as a
cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante
hacker by night. Elliot finds himself at a
crossroads when the mysterious leader (Christian
Slater, “The Adderall Diaries”) of an underground
hacker group recruits him to destroy the firm he is
paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs,
Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down
the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and
ruining) the world. The series also stars Portia
Doubleday (“Her”), Carly Chaikin (“Suburgatory”) and
Martin Wallström (“Simple Simon”).
MR. ROBOT is
produced by Universal Cable Productions, this
contemporary and culturally resonant drama is
executive produced by Sam Esmail (“Comet”) and
Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin (“True Detective”)
and Chad Hamilton (“Breakup at a Wedding”).
