I am sure that I am not alone in saying how taken I was with season 1 of Mr Robot. Man! What the hell actually happened at the end? OK, I’ll stop there. Though I am sure anyone who hasn’t seen season 1 and is reading this probably needs their heads checked – it’s a promo for season 2 after all!
I really loved the show. It was about time we had a series that portrayed hacking the way that is actually is. No streams of green writing streaming past your eyes. No room with 100 monitors and some whiz kid real-time fighting against a computer (like your brain can calculate that fast people!) No. Mr. Robot was dirty, gritty and very real… Or maybe not. Sometimes, ish…
Here’s a quick breakdown of what season 1 was about.
Young, anti-social computer programmer Elliot works as a cyber-security engineer during the day, but at night he is a vigilante hacker. He is recruited by the mysterious leader of an underground group of hackers to join their organization. Elliot’s task? Help bring down corporate America, including the company he is paid to protect, which presents him with a moral dilemma. Although he works for a corporation, his personal beliefs make it hard to resist the urge to take down the heads of multinational companies that he believes are running – and ruining – the world
Indeed, he had issues with quite a few things. Drugs, women, the world. That was the beauty about Elliot (brilliantly played by Rami Malek), you were never really sure where his mind was. Also, Christian Slater playing – REDACTED – was rather brilliant.
Anyway, let’s have a look at a new rather short, and very spoiler free promo for the upcoming season:
Not much really being said about season 2 here although the director of all season 1 episodes Sam Esmail has already said it will have something to do with privacy and data encryption (I wonder where they got that from FB EYYYYYYYY).
Expect Mr. Robot season 2 on USA sometime later this year.
