    The first episode is riveting, driven by cinema-caliber direction from Niels Arden Oplev, a razor-sharp script from Sam Esmail and a fantastic performance from Rami Malek.

    Mr. Robot is compulsively watchable and interesting. It's a reminder that even the most well-worn cliches can still work with the right execution.

    The series is ridiculous in description and enthralling in execution because of Malek’s natural charisma and his way with creator and head writer Sam Esmail’s frequent jeremiads against the powerful and moneyed.

    It's creepy and wonderful and makes great use of its New York locations--particularly Coney Island--but it's Malek's almost hypnotic performance as a bundle of hurt in a hoodie that sells it.

    It takes special skill to write and enact a character like Eliot, someone with psychological tics.... Mr. Robot and Malek get it more than right. Let’s hope Eliot doesn’t get lost in a cliched crowd beyond Wednesday’s premiere.

    It’s a mildly interesting fantasy, but the story has too many holes to feel really compelling.

You knew it wasn't only going to be good, it was going to be something special. Mr Robot is going to be more than just a show.
    Rami Malek does an incredible job as Elliot, with those crazy eyes and a social awkwardness that is done just right.
    The writing is intelligent without feeling preachy or cliche.
    The hacker theme is done very well - it's authentic, without the silly over the top antics that are usually par for the course.
    The directing is what really ties it all together.

Acting is mostly great so far. It looks like the writes of the show took the time to read a linux for dummies book or something like that or ask someone who knows about computers and stuff. If the show can keep up with the quality of the pilot or even improve it a bit, it will be a great show.

    EDIT: After second episode. I don't know what happened but the second episode is much worse than the fist one, kind of surprised because I really liked the pilot.

    terrible. another tv show centered around hacking that's clearly written by those who have no knowledge about hacking, computers, phones,terrible. another tv show centered around hacking that's clearly written by those who have no knowledge about hacking, computers, phones, internet, intranet, etc.

    i did laugh my butt off when they called a ddos the most severe kind of attack, though.

    gaping plotholes from a ludicrous premise/set of instances aside, it was also a blatant rip-off of dexter's frst episode. just replace murder with (hilariously outlandish) hacking. pathological hacker/murderer has long history of said actions, only targets bad people, has trophies of said actions, and gets contacted by a fellow hacker/murderer.

    lame.
