Critic Reviews for Mr. Robot Season 2

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (19)

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.

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.

Jul 14, 2016 | Full Review…

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.

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.

Top Critic

In the universe of Mr. Robot, which is even darker and more joyless in season two, it increasingly feels like the audience might be Elliot's enemy.

Jul 13, 2016 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

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.

Sep 12, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

Aug 27, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

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]

Jul 10, 2018 | Full Review…

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…

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.

    People say the second season of Mr. Robot isn't as good as the first one and I don't understand what they are talking about...
  • Nov 18, 2019
    Not as good as season 1 but this season is still absolutely incredible.
  • Oct 18, 2019
    Although this second season of Mr Robot is not as good as the first, the second season of Mr Robot is good. He still has good performances (Especially Rami Malek) and with a good Turkish spin at the end (But it wasn't as good as the first season's nut tour)
  • Oct 12, 2019
    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.
  • Sep 07, 2019
    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.
  • Jun 16, 2019
    these guys sure hack fast
  • Apr 20, 2019
    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.
  • Apr 06, 2019
    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.
