  1. Sorry, no Doctor Who this week as I was a bit too busy to watch any, but we will be returning to our on-going epic viewing marathon next Sunday with The Evil of the Daleks (1967).

    Based on your recommendation ( which I will hold you responsible for 🙂 I watched Mr. Robot. I have to agree with your assessment and say that it’s extremely well-written, the acting is superb, and the directing is very effective. However, what I think makes this show very engrossing is its appeal to the new generation. Every show must have a target audience, and this one aims at the millennials who are now, in my opinion, challenging to inherit a world controlled by a corrupt white collar corporate elite. And that premise is not fiction, there have been enough headlines to prove that this scenario is very true. My only con: it’s not exactly the most original premise. It’s been done before in the movie Hackers, and documented very well in Bruce Sterling’s non-fiction, The Hacker Crackdown. Still, this new technological Robin Hood is really well done and worth a watch. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

      Hi Saul

      There are also many other ideas, quite shamelessly appropriated from other sources in Mr. Robot. Some that I didn’t mention include The Matrix and Scandal (his character very reminiscent of Guillermo Diaz’s Muñoz).

      However, Rami Malek’s acting, the tone, the fact that some of the techno-babble even makes sense are enough for me to give the thing a pass. (And that’s even despite aspects of techno-nerd culture that seem a bit off).

      In any case, I don’t review, I just attempt to enjoy. Life’s too short.

      But I’m glad you like it. I’m glad I like it too!
