Elliot Alderson (10 episodes)

Written by: 15 August 2015 3 Comments

“Elliot Alderson, a young cyber-security engineer living in New York who assumes the role of a vigilante hacker by night. Elliot meets a mysterious anarchist known as “Mr. Robot” who recruits Elliot to join his team of hackers, “fsociety”. Elliot, who has a social anxiety disorder and connects to people by hacking them, is intrigued but uncertain if he wants to be part of the group. The show follows Mr. Robot’s attempts to engage Elliot in his mission to destroy the corporation Elliot is paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs that are running (and ruining) the world…”

So says the IMDB storyline for my Telly pick for the moment: Mr Robot.

I’ll pretty much watch anything that includes robots… even if as in the case of this show [spoiler alert] there isn’t any bloody robots, sorry to ruin ya lives there robot geeks… and while it did take 7 episodes for me to get over the fact no fuckoff scary tooled up and weaponised robot would come into the picture the show isn’t a let down… its got drugs, cyber security, ladies of the night, knife action and evil corporates so even without a actual robot its pretty much Robocop with significant plot deviations.

For those who’ve made it this far I’ll now come clean, its nothing like robocop, has no robots but does have a lot of the things contained in the storyline I borrowed above and also allude to.¬†Should you bother – fuck yeah! I’ve been watching it in my solitude and enjoyed it so much I got the boss to check it out and she digs it too, so at EP8 I’ve already watch the show twice and I dig it.

TL:DR – bob likes it so should you – if you don’t there’s a fuckoff robot behind you who will kill you, bury you in my backyard and then manufacture another robot whose only function will be to shit and piss on your grave.

big fuckoff robot

    I agree with Bob. It’s a fine form of mind-fuckery.
    Sits closely under Hannibal on my list of favourite shows.
