Mr. Robot: a show on the USA Network

Pilot is up for US people on YouTube. 75% of this seems like it was written by a 14-year-old who just read Fight Club and the narration is eyeroll-worthy, but I found it pretty entertaining.

Styx really compromised their original artistic vision.

It's probably the second-best drama airing on US TV this week.

Just caught E01 tonight, it wasn't bad. The dialogue is cringeworthy sometimes but the actual tech stuff is accurate and not the usual technobabble. The only major problem is the bloody title. Ooof.

How many EPs is S01? Do USA even do miniseries? I could absolutely go for like 20 episodes of this right now.

I could see this getting better but there is some real dumb stuff going on in the pilot.

The cyber punk secret hideout on the Coney Island boardwalk is just embarrassing.

I enjoyed it, though I read a Christian Slater interview where said he's not actually good with computers.

The nuances of this show are something else.

Should I be rooting for the awkward vulnerable lead character and his band of outcast hackers or Evil Corp?

Probably won't know till season 2.

This is not the best show on TV, but it might be the most entertaining show on TV. It's very ludicrous, silly and fun.

Read a fan theory today that Christian Slater/Mr. Robot/fsociety group is all in Elliot's head...

Little too on the nose w/r/t Fight Club for me but I can kind of see it.

Only realised today that the friend in this is the girl in Youth in Revolt. She looks very different.

my wife throughout the same theory about 45 min into the pilot. and, yeah, i agree, it seems too obvious a fight club rip to be the case.

at first i couldnt figure out why he talked in this weird over enunciated baby talk all the time but the last episode where he was describing his relationship with his dad made me think its a deliberate choice and not just the actors affectation trying to be cute.

weird swing and miss kubrick vibes at the front of the episode last night. enjoyed the episode overall though
