Mr. Robot is Quite Good
Anyone else catch this? I really did not expect this to be anywhere nearly as good as it is, especially for a show on USA (Suits is the only other show on USA I like).
The main character is generally quite relatable (to me anyway) though certainly suffers from some hyperbole, but to be fair pretty much all TV characters are hyperbolic/caricatures.
I was totally expecting/prepared for the technical speak in this show to be typical moronic CSI-esque garbage but was very pleasantly surprised at how well done and accurate it is instead, at least compared to other shows. It's definitely the best from any show that I can think of at the moment. It's the first time I've ever seen a TOR network (network of re-routing traffic for anonymity) accurately described as not completely anonymous because of the vulnerability of the exit node, every other show I've seen it spoken of was as a lazy writing device to make something completely anonymous/untraceable. Seeing actual commands used that were relevant to what the character was doing was also unexpected and refreshing.
I'm pretty skeptical/eye-rolly about Mr. Robot's ripped-out-of-Fight Club goal, but I'm willing to give it leeway for now and see how it plays out.
