A skinny, pale superhero with way too much on his mind potentially gives the USA network its first big buzz, social media sensation.

It's a mildly interesting fantasy, but the story has too many holes to feel really compelling.

Jun 24, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

USA's Mr. Robot might be the best show in the history of the network.

A thought-provoking, exciting, in-your-face hacker drama.

[Rami] Malek is an actor worth watching, though, and he is well-suited to his character's quirks.

USA Network has already got the ratings. Now it wants the critical cred. Done.

What's great about Mr. Robot, and what one hopes is not lost in its second season, is its tone.

Aug 22, 2018 | Full Review…

But the first thing the show will have to do is get Elliot's brain back on the right track after all of Season 1's revelations, and that won't be easy. But you will be watching.

Painstaking in its photography and musical choices, Esmail's show pulls off the tricky feat of telling a gripping story about keyboard tappers that doesn't make computer geeks cringe.

Aug 26, 2015 | Full Review…

It's an engaging watch - tense and fast-paced. Definitely one to check out.

Apr 19, 2017 | Full Review…

The result is a twisting, turning mystery that leaves you asking, "Where is my mind?"

Sep 12, 2017 | Full Review…

This is tensely plotted, tensely directed and hypnotically compelling.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Robot: Season 1

    Extremely passive characters. Cliché reactions. Long freezing moments of dragging dialogue. Pacing issues. Music is non-existent. Foreseeable twists from miles away. And so much more.

    The best first season of any show ever

    "Mr. Robot" really is one of the best TV series of the 2010s. Rami Malek, who portrays the antisocial Elliot Alderson, gives an incredible performance. The rest of the cast is amazing as well. The plot is absolutely brilliant and intriguing. Each episode builds anticipation and excitement. This show is unique and a must-watch for binge-watchers.

    What an amazing season of television
  • Aug 02, 2019
    Possibly the greatest show to come out this decade.
  • Aug 01, 2019
    The most relevant and important contemporary TV dystopia of the information age
  • Jul 05, 2019
    unnerving, grim and interesting to the bone. an homage to fight club, yet is individual in it's cinematography and more personal, realistic approach
  • Jun 28, 2019
    Unbelievably bad writing and acting. The series comes across like a B-movie and is nowhere near the level of artistry of he good shows that are out there. Ridiculous plots and even worse dialogue are the demise of this show.

    Rami Malek embodies Elliot and really makes you feel uncomfortable watching MR. Robot. The show is shot well and I really like the overall pacing of each season, but the problem is that this show borrows far too much from Fight Club.. It's in your face.. It doesn't turn me away from watching this show, but some will find it derivative and I wouldn't argue.. It's essentially a fight club re-imagining with a hacker.. It is done well though.. Even if sometimes I feel like the directors think they are hiding more from us than they actually are..

    What a wonderful TV show. The white lotus is the most fascinating of characters. EVEN JOEY BADA$$ the G Himself! what a wonderful movie. Eliot is one of the best characters ever! I HATE GASLIGHTING. What if his dad is actually still a whole mind in the afterlife and everyone on the planet just wants Eliot to stop saying this isnt YOLO or some shit.
