Mr. Robot (Season 1)

I’ve finally gotten around to watching this (something I’ve been meaning to do for what feels like forever), and binged almost all of it over the weekend (I’m on episode 9 now, of 10). I knew it was something I was going to like, based on everything I’d read about it, and it even surpassed my expectations. I’d unfortunately gotten spoiled on the big twist that happens in episode 8 – from a podcast I was listening to just last week – but I found that it didn’t really change my enjoyment of everything, and even let me look at some things more attentively to see if it all made sense. I’m also a big fan of the framing in the show, which I feel does a great job of supporting the feeling of intimidation and paranoia that the characters express throughout. Already looking forward to diving into season 2.
