    you guys watched this ? surprised i haven't seen a thread here about it

    I had never heard of it but a mate recommended it. so me and the wife checked out an episode then binge watched the whole series in about 18 hours ,which for us with a baby is a big effort . thought it was a great show. looked great, filmed great and well written ..although ..

    we did pick the twist that it was his dead dad pretty early . that said I don't think they really tried too hard to hide it with him turning up in odd places

    I haven't been interested in a TV show since Cheers and Northern Exposure went off the air.
    Started getting into Almost Human, then it got cancelled.

    But Mr. Robot got the hooks in me big time!
    Can't wait for the next season.

    @Mongey - yeah, my wife and I blew through the series after someone recommended it and also picked up on that pretty much immediately. The concept is strongly similar to Fight Club in that regard

    meaning he sees someone that's not there, is the "leader" of the group, and they also take down the credit card companies - all basically just like Fight Club but with Hackers

    Still though, I liked it a lot, we both did. Seems we're now just waiting on new seasons for several shows - Ash vs Evil Dead (just ended), House of Cards, Outlander, Rick and Morty (cartoon), Orange is the New Black, Mr Robot, and others. Seems to be a big empty waiting slot right now LOL.

    Me too for a living, and I used to hack as well and read several awesome books on it :) I also use Linux as my primary OS at home :hbang:

    Just finished it with my girlfriend last night.
    Liked it a lot but was really let down by the twist; just seems way too easy and meh. Especially now that Rev linked it to Fight Club.

    Can't wait for season 2 to start.

    I watched the first episode last night, based on hype and recognizing Rami Malek from Until Dawn, and holy crap, one episode and I haven't been this pulled into a show since Breaking Bad. May just marathon this show after work tonight.

    Story wise it wasnt really that original. Its doing the whole fight club thing in an IT setting.

    But the execution of the show is brilliant, for once hacking doesnt involve someone pressing random .... and cheesy 90's graphics and neo googles. Not just that, but they make a rather simple story very convincing and realistic.
    For that alone i love it.

    Just started this last night and it's all I can do not to take a couple sick days off work so I can binge watch it.

    I binge watched it. Early on I was hating on the Fight Club, V for Vendetta similarities. But, it got intense. Love the characters of Angela, Tyrell, all the suits at E corp.

    So that finale left me with all of the questions. ALL of the questions.

    Brace yourself. There are quite the twists.

    I got a little bored with some of the character development in season 2. All around a really good show though!

    Yeah. Season 1 was really good. I felt a little underwhelmed with Season 2.

    The 1980's sitcom episode was one of my favorite tv shows of all time. Reminded me of Fight Club meets Community lol.
