    [Showrunner and creator Sam Esmail is] a Kafka in the director’s chair, who sees alienation where everyone else sees a Facebook “like.” It’s as compelling and timely a vision as there is in a primetime series at the moment, and darkness is the price of admission.

    Mr. Robot remains one of the most dizzying, intoxicating, challenging shows on television, a gripping look at mental illness and brilliance run amok, tied to an essentially sweet, if damaged, character. It’s a show that poses Big Questions and dares to leave them hanging.

    The show’s centerpiece remains Malek’s mesmerizing turn as Elliot, as well as his chemistry with Slater‘s Mr. Robot. Excavating that much emotion from deadpan narration is a tough gig, but Malek continues to find new shades of neutral both in voiceover and in his scenes.

    Mr. Robot and creator Esmail have earned this quirky, almost mild and studious, way to commence the second season; for fans, trust in the show has been established.

    In its two-part, two-hour premiere, some problems from season one resurface, but, for the most part, this is entertaining, accomplished television that has to something to say.

    As usual with Mr. Robot, there's a sense that the creators care only about establishing pretenses to mount their formally self-conscious kitsch. The series is too busy being cool to matter.

    Season 2 of Mr. Robot was complex, deep and dark. It changed the formula of regular television by being different from Season 1. I lovedSeason 2 of Mr. Robot was complex, deep and dark. It changed the formula of regular television by being different from Season 1. I loved Season 1 and Season 2 was better. Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Carly Chaikin, Portia Doubleday, Stephanie Corneliussen, Martin Wallström, and Grace Gummer are all truly amazing here and they prove Mr. Robot has one of the best casts on Television. Don't expect it to be like Season 1, this a continuation of the events after the Five/Nine hack, not a rehash to make everyone happy. Expand

Within moments of hour one it is clear thatI have viewed hour one and regret doing so... because I am drooling for hour two later today. Within moments of hour one it is clear that Season 1 was no fluke and Season 2 shoots out of the gate with swag and confidence. This is film quality television. Masterpiece. Relevant. Thrilling. Disturbing. Top-notch. If I recall there is a moment where Mr. Robot mentions something about "the rollercoaster" that Eliot is currently on - mentally. I'm buckled in - this feels like it will be another doozie of a season.... possibly even stronger than S1 if that is even possible. Expand

    I can't help but feel the Seinfeld references, with it being a show about nothing, was sort of alluding to how the first half of season 2 ofI can't help but feel the Seinfeld references, with it being a show about nothing, was sort of alluding to how the first half of season 2 of Mr Robot would be. Because not a lot happens. Basically we get it pounded into our minds over and over again how the main character is crazy, which was already known since season 1 but I guess we needed to be shown that again. Over and over.

    Ignoring that we get these redundant scenes, I also feel there's a lot of padding in the sense scenes take longer than necessary. We need to be shown for almost 3 minutes that a smart house became a noise hell due to hacking. The same with a chess scene, where we find out you can't beat yourself playing chess........ There are a lot of these kind of scenes, which feel stretched out because frankly there was not much else happening to fill the time better with.

    Probably due to the big 'reveal' midway in the season which pretty much made most of what you saw in the first half of the season pointless. Because of this constraint they couldn't really further the story.. A reveal which made no sense at all, because why would he lie to his 'invisible firend' to begin with? Other than the writers wanting to force another "Fight Club"-esque reveal moment into the season.

    It's the 2nd half of the season which sort of saves it in my opinion. mainly because things actually happen and the story gets furthered along. Yeah some characters are turning into charicatures with their speeches or conversations which seem unrealistic. Especially the 'bad guy' and the sister. And we get some silly scenes with the girlfriend being tested by a little girl. But at least things happened, for real and not make believe,

    The first season was great. Original, beautiful and unexpected. Great characters and enough plot development to keep you addicted.
    I am now already 4 hours in the second season and I cannot recognize this show. The original plot is completely lost and all the mistery related to the season 1 finale is just ignored. We have to deal with psychological issues of the protagonist battling himself. In every episode the same topics are touched and they repeat all the time the same "issues" without any plot development whatsoever.

    4 just because the photography is great.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Over-hyped, Instagram-filter-ish, self-important vacuousness populated by cardboard-cutout, two-dimensional characters performed by lackluster actors. Rami Malek, the lead, is actually alright in his performance, though the "autistic and/or socially inept genius" cliché was already an exhausted resource by the time Mr. Robot was first released: Sherlock, Elementary, Monk, the Mentalist, etc... Not to mention that the whole premise behind Mr Robot (both the split personality and the project to bring down financial institutions) are literally lifted from Fight Club. Don't waste your time with this show. The second season is even worse than the first one. Expand
