Last night I started watching Mr. Robot on Amazon Prime. It’s a new (2015) American hacker tv series and totally up my Geek Street. I’m hooked.
The main character Elliot is a software engineer by day and elite hacker by night. He suffers with severe anxiety and schizophrenia and is extremely awkward in social situations but a part of him would love to belong. He’s extremely observant and has hacked the personal details of everyone he knows.
Mr. Robot, played by Christian Slater is a mysterious anarchist that recruits Elliot to do his bidding.
It’s quite fast paced, a little bit dark, but not too sinister and has a cast of likeable, interesting characters.
Mr. Robot has received critical acclaim and has been nominated for multiple awards, winning the 2015 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama.
Prior to its series premiere on June 24, 2015, Mr. Robot was renewed for a second season, which will include a minimum of 10 episodes.
