    I just watched the pilot to the new series ‘Mr. Robot’ starring Rami Malek (‘Short Term 12’, ‘The Master) and Christian Slater, and it was fantastic. I really dug the tone and the mood, very Fincher-esque. The pilot even features Malek’s character Elliot narrating much of it, but it’s actually used really well here and he’s somewhat of an unreliable narrator, giving it almost a ‘Fight Club’ sort of feel. Here’s the description form wikipedia: 

    The series follows Elliot, a young cyber security engineer by day and a vigilante hacker by night. Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group attempts to recruit him to destroy the corporation he is paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world.”

    The pilot is directed by Niels Arden Oplev (‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’) and written by Sam Esmail. It’s really well written and terrifically acted (especially by Malek), and besides Slater features supporting turns from Portia Doubleday as Angela, Elliot’s friend and co-worker,  Michael Gill as his boss Gideon, and Gloria Reuben as his therapist Krista.

    You can actually watch the pilot early on youtube for free and with no commercials here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpxvvnWvffM

    It will air regularly on the USA Network starting 6/24.

    I was going to create the thread, but I searched first and found it! Very good pilot I watched it about a month ago and counting the days ever since for episode 2. The title of the episodes are awesome. According to IMDB , episode 2 is entitled  eps.1.1_ones-and-zer0es.mpeg as was episode 1 titled eps1.0hellofriend.mov.

    The show has great potential.

    Same here! I really hope the first season can live up to the potential of that terrific pilot.

    Very Fincher-esque indeed, very cinematic, fantastically directed, well written and acted.

    One of the best pilots I’ve seen in years. I am stunned and excited for more!

    I thought the pilot was excellent. The second episode less so, but things look to pick up next week.

    I thought the second episode was very good too, the crazy ass trafficant reminded me of breaking bad’s Tuco played by Raymond Cruz.

    I know the format is a little tiresome but if every episode is gonna end up with crazy cliffhangers like that I’m all in. 

    Malek was crazy good in the therapy scene.

    Ok that episode was very badly written, the scene with Angela and her dick of a boyfriend was just terrible , they demissed her character to borderline ridicullous and one dimension to shit.  Elliot gives up the hacker life and then just comes back with in it by the end of the episode, that was just a mess.

    I was kind of giving up on this show after 4 episodes, but episode 5 and 6 just blew my mind, everyone who gets a chance to watch this, you are missing some terrific drama.

    Also, RENEWED for season 2.

    I meant to post earlier. I’ve been catching up on this show and love it. More people should really be watching this.

    How come no one here is watching this show? People are missing out on one of the best dramas in years.
    I have no words on how brilliant episode 8 was.

    I was going to catch up with this, but I think I’ll wait to binge it after the season is over. I’ve heard good things!

    Yeah. That episode was terrific. I think that Mr Robot already is “the next big thing” on tv. And Rami Malek was born to play this role.
