This is tensely plotted, tensely directed and hypnotically compelling.

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

The show is fast-paced, visceral, original and, as reports go, extremely authentic.

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

Mr. Robot isn't perfect, but it's far from the dismissible piece of dullness that I initially thought I saw.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Robot: Season 1

Mr. Robot is not your ordinary summer thriller, thanks to it's intriguing premise, a profoundly complexive and morally questionable lead - with a breath-taking performance by Rami Malek - cohersive storytelling, merciless criticism upon modern society, and just the right amount of paranoia, inevitably becoming one of television's must-see content.

Daring and provocative, Mr. Robot is a stylistic techno thriller from USA. Season 1 follows a computer engineer named Elliot Alderson who's approached by a group of vigilante hackers called "fsociety" to help them bring down the banking conglomerate Evil Corp. in order to wipeout the public debt. However, Elliot is a psychologically disturbed young man who struggles to connect with other people and discern between fantasy and reality; which places fsociety's project in jeopardy. Narrated by Elliot, the show breaks the third wall in a rather interesting way; having him talk to the audience is if they're a voice in his head. Also, the series features a fairly strong cast , which includes Rami Malek, Carly Chaikin and Christian Slater; who all give extraordinary performances. Additionally, the directing is very Kurbrickian; setting an atmospheric tone that's sinister and foreboding. The writing is quite impressive as well; telling a complex story with a lot of subplot (though they don't always work out). Full of intrigue, Season 1 of Mr. Robot is incredibly intense and extremely engaging.

I?m still in total awe of Mr. Robot. As the first season of a series, it is so intelligently and expertly organized, made even more brilliant by its surrealist approach to reality and whether what you?re seeing is actually real. The unreliable narrator meets a brilliant group of hackers that seem to be an ode to Anonymous, the real Internet hacktivists. In Mr. Robot, the stakes are high: corporate debt elimination is a real threat, and this group of individuals could take down the entire economy with the press of a reset button, wiping away all loans and debt. Whether this is terrorism, anarchy, or bravery is for you to decide, all while deciphering its intoxicating, paranoid, mind-bending events. I can still truthfully say I haven?t recovered cognitively or emotionally from the finale.
