Don't be put off by the name. Anyone who's interested in tech and the elite evil corporations that are taking over the world will love this. The pilot episode was better than most of the movies I've seen of late.

It's about a vigilante hacker who works as at a cyber-security expert during the day. It's very gritty and realistic from the get go and I would safely say that everyone on these forums will love it as much as I did. Ohh and Christian Slater's in it too. 9.8/10

Saw a teaser for it a couple weeks ago, looked interesting so I look forward to checking it out. Didn't know they released the pilot early to viewers though, but I'll wait til the 24th for the premier.

God damn, this is better than most shows around right now. It reminds me of Watch Dogs and Utopia. Really good stuff.

Just watched this, oh my god is it amazing. Has such a good tone to it, definitely reminds me of Watch Dogs @Mr.Scratch, that's a good shout. Only problem is I have to wait a month now for the next episode.

I grabbed the first four eps and started watching this last week and it is really good. It's both ridiculous and amazing at the same time. Rami Malek is intense as the socially awkward, vigilante hacker lead and I love his droning inner monolog. It's reminiscent of Norton's in Fight Club. The first ep is extremely engaging and sh*t gets really dark after that. If you haven't been watching this, you should be.

 

Also, Christian f*ckin' Slater.

This was one of the shows that caught my fancy and I loved it! Very gripping. Highly recommended to anyone who hasn't watched it yet.

I've started watching this a few days ago, I'm up to episode 5.

 

Now this is a pure guess, I haven't even come close to a spoiler.

But I am absolutely convinced this is the same plot as Fight Club... With the same plot twist.

It's not actually a twist or a spoiler IMO. The only person that isn't aware of who Mr. Robot is is the protagonist himself. The viewers are supposed to have it figured out before him. Unless they're retarded.

The finale was kinda low key. Doesn't force you to look forward to the next season but it will still make you watch it.

Oh yeah. Took me a good while to make the connection that the guy was White Rose.

I f*cking knew White Rose was playing them all along. I forget who it was, but someone on the show mentioned how odd it was that the leader of the Dark Army, a hacker group motivated by the pursuit of wealth, would want to cause global economic ruin. From then on, it was quite clear that a double cross was in the works. Also, it was rather obvious when Elliot had asked White Rose why he was helping F-Society and he didn't respond.

 

As for Tyrell, it would seem to me that Elliot did indeed murder him when Mr. Robot was in control, as evidenced by the video of Elliot being "pushed" off the pier. That was likely Mr. Robot's way of telling Elliot where Tyrell's body was.

 

One thing that does confuse me is how unfazed the heads of Evil Corp. seem by the whole debacle. I mean, I know White Rose is on their side and likely has a plan that will ensure the company's survival, but what that is remains to be seen.

 

Finally, the cliffhanger ending was likely the police coming to arrest Elliot. The douchebag and Elliot's therapist must have gathered enough evidence to prove Elliot had indeed been delving into illegal hacks.

In the last scene the CEO of E Corp says he knows who caused it all, although I don't think he meant Elliot, but rather Tyrell.

I got psyched when I heard this in the intro of the last episode. Haven't heard it in a long ass time.
