The Not-So-Revolutionary Road of ‘Mr. Robot’

The Not-So-Revolutionary Road of ‘Mr. Robot’
When Mr. Robot debuted in the summer of 2015, none of its individual components were clearly new. The cyberpunk drama’s then-unknown creator, Sam Esmail, readily copped to the influences of paranoid Seventies thrillers like The Parallax View. Late in that first season, the show even played a piano version of the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind?” as a tip of the cap to Fight Club, from which Esmail liberally borrowed the idea that his title character, played by Christian Slater, was actually an alternate personality of hacker hero Elliot Alderson

TV Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Season 4

  • Variety
TV Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Season 4
It can be easy to forget quite how big a deal, in its early going, “Mr. Robot” was.

It eventually became, fairly enough, a hallmark for narrative and directorial excess. But the series, about Elliot, a hacker attempting to remake America, had the real-life effect of remaking the USA Network, shifting the cabler conclusively away from its previous model of sunny workplace dramedy. Its broader implications included the launches of executive producer Sam Esmail, with Amazon’s “Homecoming” and USA’s forthcoming “Briarpatch” to his credit, and star Rami Malek. And its conceit, that the world is governed by entities interested in seeding chaos for their own benefit, has seemed more urgent since the show’s 2015 premiere. The near-perfect first season had the right talent and the right timing.

But subsequent seasons’ refusal to consider the world outside Elliot’s head diminished its viewership and reputation. So it is that Season 4, the show’s last,

The series, which returns for its fourth and final season in early October, finds Elliot (Rami Malek) once again dealing with the ramifications of trying to undo his hacktivist past. Still working with the pesky spectral presence of Mr. Robot (Christian Slater), Elliot’s at the center of a yuletide reversal of fortune that could turn back the clock on the grand, economy-destabilizing project that’s been brewing since the beginning of the series.

Also back to help tell the closing chapters in the story are cast members Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Bd Wong, Grace Gummer, Martin Wallström, and Michael Cristofer. It’s not a stretch to say that at least a few of these central figures in the series may

‘Mr. Robot’ Teaser: First Look At the Intense Final Season

‘Mr. Robot’ Teaser: First Look At the Intense Final Season
The first teaser for the fourth and final season of “Mr. Robot” is out, and the series is looking as intense as ever.

The teaser for the USA Network show doesn’t shed much in the way of plot information, but the somber music and lighting certainly fit the series’ bleak tone. An unseen woman questions series protagonist Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), asking him how many people he has hurt to get what he wants.

Alderson doesn’t answer, but there’s no doubt that many people have suffered over the last three twisty seasons of “Mr. Robot.” Malek plays a vigilante hacker with dissociative identity disorder and a host of other mental illnesses, and his efforts to free the American public from debt spirals into all sorts of chaos. Drug use, corporate rule, economic collapse, and similarly heavy themes are pervasive throughout the series, which has won two Emmys.

‘Mr. Robot’ Creator Sam Esmail Says Series Will End In Season-Long “Christmas Special’ – Tribeca Talks
Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail unwrapped only one big reveal about the coming final season of his series, which is known for tense action and psychological twists and turns.

“Is anybody here a fan of British television?” he asked a packed Tribeca Talks crowd at the Tribeca Film Festival. He then offered a gift he hopes will keep on giving. “Typically how [British shows] wrap up series, like the British [version of The] Office, you tend to do a Christmas special. So the final season of Mr. Robot is one very long Christmas special that will last about a week over Christmas of 2015,” Esmail said.

The panel, Tribeca Talks: A Farewell to Mr. Robot, saw series stars Rami Malek, Christian Slater and Carly Chaikin joining Esmail in reminiscing about the series, joined by moderator Scott Feinberg.

As to the question of exactly where the series will head, the cagey Esmail would only point to the show’s history,
