Mr. Robot (2015)
Dark psychological drama - bravo!
I love love love this series. The writing, the story lines and the acting are all excellent. Folks who are technology-oriented are especially likely to enjoy this show. I appreciate the smart writing and the plot twists and surprises. The characters are well-written and fully developed by creator and writer Sam Esmail. Rami Malek, relatively unknown before this series, excels at portraying the brooding and fascinating main character. Sometimes the psychological drama is very dark but it has a specific purpose and the viewer is rewarded in the end. I enjoy this series more than any I've seen in recent years and I can't wait for Season 2.
Annoying family members are the storyline here
Boy I really wanted to like this series. I watched all of Season 1, took a break, and then started watching season 2. I've decided to stop watching because I am so disappointed with the storyline and the characters. This show presents a unique opportunity to include story lines that are unique and important to the transgender community. However, they've chosen to focus on the family and extended family members instead of Jeffrey Tambor's transgender character. This probably would have been acceptable except the family members are so unlikeable! As portrayed they are all selfish, self-absorbed and whiny. It is uncomfortable and for me, unwatchable. I love Judith Light but her character as Jeffrey Tambor's wife is the stereotypical overbearing wisecracking Jewish mom. Jeffrey Tambor is outstanding and is well-deserving of the awards he is receiving. That's really the only redeeming quality of the show. Even the dreadful "I am Cait" deals with trans issues better than this series.
