Mr Robot (S1)
created by Sam Esmail
It’s been a while since I’ve watched a gripping show that isn’t playing the realistic drama card.
Mr Robot should make dystopians aficionados very happy. Sam Esmail grew up on the same food than me and many of my generations: Alan Moore, Fight Club, Matrix, Shepard Fairey, but also Dexter, Apple, Google, House of Cards… there are so many pop-culture references in this show, it feels like a Christmas Gift for 30+.
That being said, you can miss all of those and still enjoy the dark journey of Eliot, asocial tech by day, asocial-drug-addict-paranoid-hacker-avenger by night, who battles his demons while trying to take the world down. Small feat.
Last but not least, if you are a storyteller, there’s a lot of creative techniques used to tell each episode, playing with narration, voice over, the fourth wall etc. Just for that, you should check it out.
