Edit: Watch full length episodes here

Anyone else watching Mr. Robot on USA?

The series just started as they had their second episode this past Wednesday.


TL;DR Cliff Notes below

Super smart computer guy works for a company who provides security for a major conglomerate corporation.
He is socially awkward and spends time "socializing" with people by hacking into their computers to see what their lives are really like.
Has views on the financial working world similar to Uncle Ben
Has views on hoodies similar to ACMOC

The pilot got me hooked. Main character has inspired me to become a cyber security engineer.. and also minimize my pr0n viewing.

I watched the pilot because it came on after "Suits"(which I am a fan of, watched whole series). Thought it was pretty cool and intriguing.

Guy is a schizo. You notice that no one reacts to mr robot when he was at Elliot's cubicle? When he got "pushed" off the railing he was trying to commit that. Fight club...

third episode shows two dudes *******, was pretty disturbing for cable, why do all the new shows have to be gay, or have it a main point now?

I think the dude was just faking to be gay to get to the guy's cell phone. And it's helping to build character as someone willing to do anything to get what he wants. I think they're doing a good job at making that guy look pretty evil.

I'll have to watch it now cuz the main character (Rami Malek) is Snafu from The Pacific. He was great in that series.

so far not bad. It just opens your eyes to the possibilities of things that are happening now. The funny **** is Elliot's friend, she continues to follow him like a lost puppy but then acts like she is better than him.

The gay stuff caught me off guard like wtf is this crap, but I get why they went to that extreme.

first two shows are pretty great... I think I can see where this story is going already.

I hope serially, that this show has a finale.

Caught the pilot late Saturday night, and was instantly hooked. Went out of town Sunday and yesterday so I recorded all the episodes they showed Sunday up to the current one showing Wednesday. I have one episode left to watch (ep4).

REALLY liking the show so far. I only dabble in IT stuff a bit, but I can tell from this and reviews and comments that it's pretty darn realistic. I've only seen Fight Club once and am not all that familiar with it, so if it's a ripoff of that it won't bother me too much. I also really like all the references to real and current stuff, like the clips of Steve Jobs, Cosby and Lance Armstrong, mentions of Linux OS (and I'm assuming some of the desktop screens are actually Linux, but I'm not too familiar), and other stuff like that.

It is a bit surprising to have all the profanity, drug use and sexual stuff on a network show. I could do without some of that personally, but I know it gives it more of a gritty feel which I think is what they're after.

I don't see how Mr. Robot could only be in his head if it shows the other hackers in the Coney Island "lair" interacting with him. At least I think it shows it. Dang I'm gonna have to pay closer attention to the next episode.

I told my wife that theory, but now she is calling out the times that people have an interaction with him.

There seems to be a lot of sub story plots that should make for a fun story once them all become interwoven.
