    Just finished watching the first episode on Hulu.

    My only complaint is that I now have to wait a month for the next episode. Christian Slater was even bearable.

    Really good first episode.

    It reminded of Fight Club a little bit.

    Yeah, I got done with it lats night on USA Now, and I was shocked that I liked it so much. Now I have to wait a full month for the second episode. I should've just waited for it to release as normal.

    So far, so good.

    they've been showing so many commercials on USA

    For those of you who have seen it is it just people complaining about technology the whole time like the commercials make it out to be?

    wow, I don't think I've ever heard of a series being renewed for a second season when the first season hasn't even begun airing... though if the rest of the series is anything like the pilot which I've seen a couple of weeks ago when it was leaked online, I KNOW that I'm gonna like it... it really IS pretty good, I think...

    One of the best pilots I've watched in a long time. I hope the rest of the season is on par with it.

    I usually avoid hacker-themed movies and TV because the writing usually comes off as cringey and tech illiterate, but thankfully there were only two or three such moments in the pilot. Also I thought the show was pretty good overall.

    I'm pretty sure Better Call Saul and Star Wars Rebels were both renewed before their first seasons aired.

    And The Expanse was renewed already and hasn't yet aired, from what I've heard.

    This feels almost like a cyberpunk show

    Damn this show is good, really starting to buy into the theory that Mr Robot isn't real.

    This show is magnificent... it's like Utopia (UK) and House Of Cards (US) had a baby.

    The look, direction, acting, writing, and characters are all top notch... dare I say it, this show is outdoing everything on HBO right now.

    I get a Tyler Durden from Fight Club vibe about Mr Robot.
    Darlene remind me of Marla as well.

    I wonder if Tyrell's name is a little nod to Blade Runner?

    I'm thinking that a lot of this isn't real. Who names their corporation EvilCorp? Then Mr. Robot and the arcade crew feel like they are really only there in Elliot's consciousness. I'm expecting [BLACKOUT]Elliot not having access to his usual drug routine after getting the drug dealer busted[/BLACKOUT] to start answering some of these questions.

    Come on guys, we all know hackers look more like Chris Hemsworth than this scrawny guy, :D

    Seriously, this show is awesome. You never know where it's going.

    Just watched episode 2 and I'm officially in love with this show. Really digging it. I also am intrigued by the Mr. Robot is in his head theory. Can't wait for the next episode

    The company is E corp, he said in the first episode that when he hear or sees it he automatically replaces it with Evil Corp. That also gives some credence to the Mr. Robot is in his head theory
