It is on USA channel. Showcase has the Canadian broadcast rights for the show but they won't start showing it until September 4th.

You can watch the 1st episode legally here:

If you're OK paying for it, it's in the Microsoft TV store - up to and including episode 8.

Kodi.

It's a legal program with frowned upon streaming add-ons available for it.

What did everyone think of episode 8?

Spoiler!


I haven't been this excited about starting a new show since Suits and this time I'm starting right at the beginning. I hope this show can maintain this level. It could be one of the all time greats.

Illegally. I would happily subscribe to the USA Network, but alas I cannot.

They seriously have some solid programming and they let you stream on demand.

I wonder how many people watching and enjoying the show are even aware of or remember Enron? It's an obvious inspiration for EvilCorp, even though Enron wasn't as diversified or all-encompassing. But that whole scandal was some time ago, and given the audience this show likely attracts, I'm just curious.

Seeing that angled E always makes me smirk as I watch the show.

Only watched two episodes so far but I have to say that episode 2 was nowhere near as strong as the first episode. Unfortunate. I guess they couldn't keep that level going every episode. Hoping it gets better again as I go along.

It's been delayed until next week.

The previously filmed season finale of Mr. Robot contains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia.

Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode.

2nd episode is a drop off for sure, in fact several others might feel that way as well but when you see them all you won't feel that way anymore.

I feel like this show has already "jumped the shark". tried to do too much in one season, and lost what i liked about the pilot episode

The show seems to have brought a lot of psychological stuff in which didn't appear to be a factor at the outset and a lot has happened for one season. But it's made the show interesting every episode. Can it continue to evolve at the same pace and balance all these storylines? I hope so.

Liked the piano rendition of Where is My Mind in the scene with Elliot and Tyrell.

If you guys catch up, you'll kinda see that, no, they didn't start "too much".

For those that did:

Only just finished episode 2.

Love the fight-club/american psycho style drama with the protagonist as an unreliable narrator (he hears and sees everything as Evil Corp, events might not actually be happening, etc.), the tech stuff not so much.

The fact that it is probably the most-realistic and researched cyber-terrorism/hacking thriller out there doesn't necessarily mean it's got it right or believable. It's just that competition is so bad (CSI Cyber, etc.). A lot of the tech stuff is head-scratching and laughable but it's the trade off of television.

That said, it still does a great job of showing a general audience how most hacks and identity thefts and breaches work. IE: social engineering like calling someone on the phone pretending to be their bank or slipping something past their electronic & physical defenses (fake music CD, compromised thumb drive, etc.)
