Mr Robot looks like it could be a good show

Mr. Robot looks like it could be a great show. Episode 1 introduced the main character, Elliot, a socially-isolated nerd who struggles with how society is controlled by corporations. One of the cool things about Elliot’s character is that he’s not socially isolated because he’s a nerd, rather, it’s because he prefers that — or at least it seems that way. The videography does a good job of showing enough of computer screens for one to see that it’s legitimate, current technology, and so that people who actually understand what’s going on know that it’s accurate information and not just made up.

John C. Dvorak, columnist and co-host of No Agenda, called it, “[T]he best portrayal of a hacker I’ve ever seen”, and I am inclined to agree with him.

The full pilot episode is available online, and the show will start on USA Networks later this month. (Hopefully those suits don’t mess it up.)

Oh, it also has great episode titles.
