Rami Malek and Christian Slater

"Mr. Robot" review by Karl 12/1/15
Returns for a 2nd season in 2016!

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 protect.

With the 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”).
