The following is a season review of the first season of Mr. Robot. This review was written in May 2016.
I just finished Mr. Robot some days ago. I know, I know, it aired in the U.S. in the middle of 2015. But Mr. Robot was not, I believe, shown anywhere in Denmark, which is kind of odd considering one of the characters is Danish, and the first episode is directed by a Dane. But somehow, some way Mr. Robot didn’t air in Denmark in 2015. For a long time, Mr. Robot was this weird little show airing on the USA Network that a lot of my followers just tweeted about on Twitter.
I had no real idea what it was all about. When I sat down to finally watch the trailer I was intrigued. Rami Malek who I had seen in some other shows and films (but mostly recognized from the 2015 PlayStation exclusive Until Dawn) was the lead, and Christian Slater was the main supporting character in a show about ‘hacktivists’.
