Excited to see this show develop. Now that GoT and SV are over, I need something new to watch.

Anyone with dish can catch the premiere on demand. I thought it was fantastic and has a legit chance at being elite.

I'm glad to see Michael Moore found gainful employment after people stopped watching his documentaries. Nerd fight club ftw

Really enjoyed the premiere. Rewatching my favourite Sopranos episodes at the moment and the guy they frame (Colby) plays the lawyer who sells 'Whitecaps' to Tony.

The pilot felt like Dexter: Hacker edition.

Good point -- I hope the USA folks are thinking this too b/c it'll bring in new viewers to their recent programming (like me) who might otherwise skip it.

Really happy to see Malek get his major break. Unique actor for sure.

Very well-written pilot.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Watched the premiere episode and thought it was solid to quite good. I have some minor gripes with it, like a project manager not knowing what a rootkit is, or when a major breach occurs, Elliot (Malek) takes his sweet time coming in. Overall, it was compelling.

To those worried about the USA network factor, this is concerning. I saw it running on Bravo and the E! channel tonight on my TV guide. I assume it's running at different points throughout the week on all of NBCUniversal's channels. So, there's a healthy chance it becomes watered down in an effort to appeal to a wider audience.

The pilot was great, but thinking along the lines of the poster above me, I'm not expecting this to be a great tv show.

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

I like a lot this show and if next eps can continue that tensions that ep 1 had, will be very good. Its good to see tv series about hakers.

And btw Rami Malek its perfect actor for leading role and i like a lot his puff up (idk is this correct word) coz he is in front of his computer/laptop all the time, like me

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

Watched the first episode twice already. This is some solid writing and great NYC shots.
Loved hearing his thoughts. Hard to tell what is real or his delusions. DVR worthy!!

The dialogue explains it. Whenever he hears the real name he has conditioned himself to only hear evil corp.

If you want to quibble - Can you imagine some massive mega-corporation outsourcing their IT security to some random, tiny firm?

Re: New Show- Mr. Robot

So? 2nd episode was a bit of an downgrade i would say....

i hope its not gonna be the same like sense8. Super interesting pilot and show turns to **** as most of stuff on TV these days.

Honestly, theres not many watchable series out there.

Yea ep 2 wasn't good, but I'll give it a few more since the pilot was good.

Sense 8 was unwatchable for me, so I hope this isn't that bad.

Not sure what's not to like? Seemed to me same quality as pilot, but being the "ordinary" episode there was less going on.

I liked it, too. The transition from pilot to first "real" episode is never easy, but they left enough hooks to keep me watching, especially since I'm just getting used to figuring out what's really happening to him and what's just in his mind.

2nd episode confirmed not as strong as the pilot... but the pilot was f amazing so it would be hard to live up to that every episode. I'll definitely keep watching, as the story line is intriguing enough.

I thought the 2nd episode was great. I'm still not sure what is real and not real and who is good or bad. I mean how many villains are there in this Show?
