Hi Everyone, I'm dotkyl and this is my first post.
I've been watching this serie for some weeks, and I'll tell you what it's about so you can check it out.
Name: Mr Robot
Status: Finished, 10 episodes this season, 2nd season premiere 2016
Episode Size: ~45min
Genre: Crime, Drama
I would say Mr Robot is a serie about the human being and it's comportament in society. "What do you do?", "Where do you work?", all the silent questions that are in our day but we don't pay atention, and answer it automatically. In the technical point of view, everything that happens in the serie is well founded, and can happen irl. This said, Let's talk about the sinopsis:
"Elliot is a young programmer, who works as a cyber security engineer by day and a vigilante hacker by night. Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the corporation he is paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world. " - USA Network Site
Here is the teaser:
So far the serie has it's good(In my opinion, it's a little dificult to imagine what will be the next move, so it doesn't get boring) and bad points(some actions still need explanation), but still, it's, for me, like a mix between Dexter and Fight Club, in a cybernetic angle. One of the most amazing things about it, imo, is that the main character, with all his skills, has it's problems(big ones), and, more than anything, how he deals with them, and this helps in the immersive sensation when you watch it. The sensation of insecurity, and, sometimes, lonelyness, catch you. The hacker group leader can make you feel scared sometimes, and the set of side characters have their own story, motivation, fears, all showed plainly in the serie's story.
Unfortunally, looks like it isn't avaible on Netflix on amazon, neither on another streaming services. But I recommend it anyway.
This was me, and my first post, be free to criticize and talk about any point of it. I hope you enjoy the show.
See you later.
