    Holy fuck I didn't expect this show to be that good, but episode one hooks you. It might not work for you non techies, but it's got to be one of the best shows on TV right now. It won the Golden Globe for Best Drama.
    Definitely give season 1 a look if you can.

    When I saw it won the GG, I tracked it down and watched the season in a weeks time. It was good, some of the anti-establishment/pro-anarchy shit got a little old after a while, but it still held my interest.

    For all the praise Season 1 has received, though, the real plot doesn't start until Season 2.

    Esmail started writing "Mr. Robot" as a feature film, but turned it into a television show when the project got too long and unwieldy. And so for all the mold-breaking hacking scenes and drama we've seen so far, Season 1, in the showrunner's eyes, is basically exposition.

    "I don’t even consider what we’re doing this season to be that huge. It was just the setup for the real story which really begins next season, which would have been Act 2 of our film," he said.

    I liked it. I didn't LOVE it but I found it to be fresh and original, and it kept me watching. Season 2 should be interesting...

    It's great, but it gets progressively worse

    The first season is great. The fact that the lead is a little "off looking" makes the show a home run. You know if they cast a pretty boy, it probably would have been molded into some typical network garbage.
