Default New series Mr Robot see it!

Only 1 episode in and critics are raving about it. Outstanding 1st episode and it truly could become one of the better series out there.

Imagine a show that combines the anti-corporate craziness of Fight Club with the subversive hacker heroism of The Matrix. Add some great acting, and a fascinating conspiracy thatís unfolding in the hazy realm between our dystopian nightmares and hard reality. Thatís Mr. Robot, which debuted last night on USA.

Looks interesting for sure. I've always liked Christian Slater. I'll give it a shot.

Looks cool, but could they have picked a more awful and generic name? Geez USA.

I really enjoyed the first episode - kind of Fight Club meets Dexter

My parents were telling me about this one. I usually don't take their recommendations with any sort of weight but I might give this one a shot.

S**t got weird in Ep 4!

Without rewatching, I believe we got our first indications that Mr. Robot isn't Tyler Durden, unless more parts than I caught on were withdrawal induced fantasy. However, the voiceover at the end of the episode still indicated there's some sort of multiple personality / internal character aspect.

Whatever is going on, it has me interested.

Just watched the first two episodes yesterday. Really enjoyed it.

Anyone know what its regular time slot/channel is in Canada? Showcase maybe?

Wow just wow, the last episode was exceptional. I really hope more people watch this series and that it gets picked up for more seasons.

Only 2 more to go for season 1, that was one intense episode, albeit the twist none of us were surprised by

I saw that this was premiering on Showcase Sept 4.

I believe it is season one that they are showing.

Watched the first episode just now after seeing this thread.

Have to say...wow. Loved it. Just all around good. Strong acting. Excellent visuals. Great feeling overall. The lead actor is very good. Big thumbs up from me.

Spoiler!

Loved the first few episodes but I've found the last few just didn't do it for me. Probably won't watch the rest of it.
