There's a slow build in progress with this season... but Esmail's deft touch with the blend of reality and fantasy remains as engrossing as ever.

Remains one of the most dizzying, intoxicating, challenging shows on television, a gripping look at mental illness and brilliance run amok... It's a show that poses Big Questions and dares to leave them hanging.

It's an incredibly cynical view of the world but it may be one of the most realistic depictions of our existence, even if it's the parts most of us never see.

Esmail is pulling a Fargo instead of a True Detective, taking his show into surprising new directions while holding onto some of the stuff that made us love it in the first place.

Even in a TV landscape boasting a huge population of anti-heroes, Mr Robot stands alone in its determination that no one should look to its lead character to guide them out of the darkness.

For all that Mr. Robot invites us to think about global financial issues, the unchecked power of technology, and imminent societal collapse, it also demonstrates just how efficiently capitalism co-opts all critiques.

Speaking of what makes the show, it still carries the cultural markers, Internet Age jibes, and background score peculiarities that made it a breakout hit last summer.

With each passing episode, it has become more of a chore to decipher what's going on amidst all the show's form-bending tricks and gimmicks.

Beyond the theories about its argument, social criticism and its ambition to be a generational series, Mr. Robot marks differences by the original use of visual composition. [Full Review in Spanish]

A lot of this could have been corrected with some sort of amazing season wrapup, but unfortunately, our worst fears about the show were proven true.

Jun 20, 2018 | Full Review…

To be sure, Malek's physically wasted and psychologically strained performance as Elliot is a sturdy foundation for excellent drama.

Oct 8, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Mr. Robot is a perfect example of a show that is referential, alluding to other works without being overly derivative or the least bit stale.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Robot: Season 2

    Even better than the first season
  • Sep 28, 2019
    Though season 2 of "Mr. Robot" isn't my most favorite, the Golden Globe-winning drama still does not fail to keep me wanting more! The cast's performances still are better than ever and the storyline keeps building & building. A MUST for binge-watchers.

    The ball keeps rolling and the momentum of Mr. Robot keeps raising. One of the best shows on television
  • Aug 02, 2019
    Season 2 keeps the wheels going, getting better and better.

    these guys sure hack fast

    There is nothing good about season 2 - This complete season from start to end is a perfect combination of fillers and garbage. STOP WATCHING THE SERIES AT THE END OF SEASON 1.

    Sam Esmail back at the game in this second season, producing something more, more than realistic. Maybe, it's very excessive. Esmail's direction in every episode was a breathtaking under-control and one of the best direction in a TV series. It felt strong in this one and it was one season that focused two other sides of the hacker and really brought you into "Fight Club" vibe. However, this is even more complex.

    not as exciting as the first season (more psych, less tech) but still a gripping drama to watch unfolding step by step
  • Feb 06, 2019
    It's still good but doesn't live up to the first season, not even close. The plot twists are way too frequent and they overthrow the story many times just to keep the audience entertained, because what's left without the (bad written) twists: The glum and somber atmosphere of the first season without its developing story and interesting characters.

    The second season just as good as the first but with some minor problems with how the plot unfolds in my eyes. The middle half of the season falls short in some ways, but the way it wraps up feels rewarding.
