Mr. Robot [5 out of 5]

30 minutes in, awesomeness? 5/5. I’ve been hearing on podcasts (mainly the nerdist) about this new TV series called Mr. Robot. First of all, anything with robot in it sounds cheesy and the Mr. on top of that – definitely a turn off. I’ve been watching AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire because I’ve been in love with Lee Pace since Pushing Daisies. In comparison to Halt and Catch Fire (a computer geek but awesome based TV series) Mr. Robot even just 30 minutes in, is way too AWESOME not to mention here. Fun bits? [1] the main star (think I saw him in the last twilight movie actually – which Lee Pace was also in) is not your average TV series joe [2] his image screams druggy pale genius which I have to say – is actually pretty hot! – since I have that similar druggy but in my case pimply vibe [3] makes me think about his perspective on society. things I didn’t really ponder about before. I guess I have thought about it in passing but for someone to clearly say it and in a form most approachable to me, I’m a bit mind fucked (in a good way) [4] also, I think the main star is Egyptian/Greek which is rather refreshing. Bottom line? Do watch. Good for those late popcorn blur nights OR in my case (since my work hours are different), super early 6am Monday mornings.

Viola Davis is a rock star no doubt but the other actors were nothing short of spectacular as well! I like the dynamics of the group – how they fight, eventually pair up and seeing who they end up with is fun and makes perfect sense after sometime. Although the muhibah part – each person of the group conveniently representing a different demographic kinda threw me off a little, but overall. Yes! More please! Oh and to some extent, yeap you WILL learn a thing or two about getting away with murder. Do apply accordingly.

Truly amazing. It didn’t hurt that season 1 starred Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and Michelle Monaghan as well. Season 1’s plot was very heavy and on the scale of disturbing, I’d give it a 7.5 over 10. Not exactly the type of show you want to watch to lift your mood – might depend on the type of person you are. Love the opening credits! A work of art in my humble opinion. If you are into occults, visually disturbing imagery (with the added audio), strong heavy storyline and amazing actors – go for it! Although *sad trombone*, season 2 paled in comparison to season 1. Rather upsetting but hey, when you set the standard amazingly high from the get go..

It’s pretty good actually. Although, for me, it’s the type of show that is great when you are watching it. Then 3 months in, you can’t remember the plot or why you liked it in the first place.
