Just binged through this recently, pretty sick show.
Season 2 started off a bit slow but its definitely picked up last episode.

Only issue i've really had is that i feel like they cant really do anything that had as big of an impact as season 1, i was also annoyed how little Elliots story had to do with everyone else during the start of season 2, but they cleared that up nicely.

I wish i found out about this at the end of the season, i hate having to wait for shows to air.

Why I love discovering shows on Netflix. 

I feel like this season has a lot of potential for shit to go down especially after the last few episodes. Elliot is now 100% committed to the cause which should make for an interesting development.

Incredible cinematography for a TV Show. Like, really impressive. Also, gotta respect the work they put in making the coding legit.

Bumping this cos the last 2 seasons have been phenomenal

It's as close to breaking bad in terms of style, pacing, payoff as I've come across. Hugely detail oriented and engaging

Mr. Robot is the best tv series of all time and that final season and ending was bloody spectacular.

 

Fight me.

im on s04e02. i kinda watched this a bit half heartedly at times.. but yes its easily one of the best tv shows of all time upon reflection. s04 is really on steroids. the first 5 minutes of the first episode of season 4 and i was floored.

 

i also found the plot/hacking at times a bit too confusing and a bit boring and difficult to follow but that could just be me, sometimes on my phone whilst watching it.  I'm not sure if its as good as the sopranos or the wire though. its very plot-based, not character based IMO.. so the interactions don't feel as natural and as authentic as the top-tier dramas. however the story is tells is obviously phenomenal. 

 

I found season 1 a bit jarring cos everything seems VERY abstract. I sadly predicted the initial season 1 plot twist. I did find the fact they call the company 'evil corp' a bit weird...  I havent' finished the show obviously but i really don't think they wrote wellick's entire transformation as a character very well at all. it seems to be like the flip of a switch he becomes this guy who has a hardon for elliot beyond all measure and wants to be a god.. he wasn't like that before at all imo. 

 

anyway i digress. amazing show. i don't think its perfect but its up there. and it might be THE most highest re-watch value of any TV show I've seen. Actually, no...  it IS the highest rewatch value of any TV show I've seen, in that I think people HAVE to rewatch it to fully appreciate how excellent the writing is. 

 

 

 

Season 1 = good but I felt slightly disjointed, good plot twist but i guessed it sadly. Everything just felt very spread out.. 

Season 2 = slow to begin with but then mind blown with the plot twist. pacing very different but told a story very delicately and I loved it. 

Season 3 = awesome pacing, got a bit bored during possibly one of the best episodes of the show (.. 71 e corp facilities... I have no idea why.. just didn't hold my interest) but overall excellent 

Season 4 = only 2 episodes in and I already feel like this is going to be the best season of TV I've ever watched. 

 

 

I think if they wanted to improve the show, they could have done with more time to flesh out side characters. I liked a lot of them but they were fairly immemorable and one dimensional. Obviously time is of the essence and the main character like elliot requires a lot more screen time, but outside of s04e01, i was never really upset by the death toll.

Also I think it surpasses breaking bad fairly comfortably. Cinematography is jaw dropping, the soundtrack is better, consequentialsm, the rewatch value is better, it feels a lot more realistic than breaking bad which always had a cartoony feel to its villain and plots.. 

 

However sadly I still think The Wire and The Sopranos are maybe a bit better although the sopranoes does have a really bad patch of weird episodes which Mr. Robot never has. 

 

 

TLDR the show is amazing. Actually by the end of season 4.. if it keeps going like this.. it'll probably be in my top 3 or top 2.. or top 1..

i just watched s04e07

 

i take it back

 

for anyone that reads this, mr robot is most definitely up there with the best tv shows of all time and has the best rewatch value of any form of medium i've watched and deserves you to watch every single second of it with your full attention.
