Mr. Robot Review

For my third show review, I chose the new Sam Esmail series, Mr. Robot, on Amazon Prime.

Now, I was surprised when I came across this show and uncertain whether I would enjoy it. I hadn't heard anything about Mr. Robot, but the reviews thus far were good and I've always enjoyed Christian Slater's acting.

The reviews were right. If you are into the tech underworld and flawed characters rebelling against corporate America, this show is for you. Think modern Fight Club. Rami Malek, a new actor for me, did a great job, and Christian Slater performed just as expected. Be sure to watch the entire first season. There are twists and turns that make up for the earlier slow pacing.

If you are a fan of Fight Club, the tech underworld, and darkly twisted shows, I highly recommend Mr. Robot.

Mr. Robot: 5 Stars
