Trailer here.

New show on USA:

In MR. ROBOT, Elliot, a cyber-security engineer by day and vigilante hacker by night, is recruited by a mysterious underground group to destroy the firm he's paid to protect. Elliot must decide how far he'll go to expose the forces he believes are running (and ruining) the world.


Caught the first episode of this.  Looks pretty good so far and will definitely give it a few episodes.

The first episode was pretty good and hopefully they can keep it up (though there's no guarantee if the first episode was made as a pilot).

The whole anti-corporation/illuminati thing seems like fight club without the fighting part anyways.

They just announced a pick up for Season 2 in front of the premiere tonight.  That makes me pretty happy.

The second episode wasn't bad and stayed true to the pilot (which is a good thing in this case).

I think Shayla did look confused there.

Given that she definitely interacted with her in this last episode, we can scratch the theory that all of fsociety is a figment. Jury is still out on Mr Robot, so far he hasn't interacted with anyone but some MiB's that were also possible figments. He gave orders to fsociety, but that could have been disassociation.

I'm hoping that Mr. Robot turns out to be the imaginary fall guy that will get all the blame in the last episode of the season thereby letting the main character avoid any charges for all the illegalities he does before that (a hybrid between Kayzer Soze and Tyler Durden...that's if they can do a decent reveal in Usual Suspects style).

I noticed when mr robot gave orders to fsociety he stepped right in front Elliot who kinda faded into the background.

This show is the mutant offspring of Fight Club and Pi.  Needs more Aphex Twin, Orbital and menacing Hasidic Jews, though.

One of the things I like the most about the show is the narrating.  It reminds me of Dexter.

The start and the ending of the episode were really strong (the middle was a bit weak but still very watchable)

I didn't know that.  I hope they keep doing it, then.

Both of them blew me away.

That said, if we're playing that game, I want Shayla back.

I guessed what was going to happen but I don't think I believed it and was shocked anyway.  The first, not the second.

This is really, really fucking good.

I keep working out what's going to happen... but only 30 seconds before it does. It's plot confusing in a good way, unlike True Detective. I'm going to have to go back and re-watch this with a notebook and pencil to hand.

Well i guess at this point we really can't rely on absolutely anything we've gotten from Elliot, so who the hell knows really.
