USA Network has released a troubling trailer for Mr. Robot – it’s a kaleidoscope of brief scenes from season three as Leonard Cohen recitess the lyrics from his song, Democracy.

A new photo from season three introduces us to a non-nonsense used car salesman named Irving – whom I suspect is anything but a used car dealer…

Mr. Robot returns Wednesday, Oct. 11th (10/9C).

Read Mr. Robot’s Journal

MrRobot

I’m a big fan of book adaptations of popular shows and movies. Fans of Mr. Robot can now read Elliott’s journal. Co-written by series creator and showrunner Sam Esmail and series writer Courtney Looney, MR. ROBOT: Red Wheelbarrow (Abrams Books; November 1, 2016; U.S. $29.95; Hardcover) is the personal notebook of Elliot Alderson, the show’s lead character, and is a uniquely rewarding way for the super fan to access Elliot’s complex psyche.

Mr. Robot, with its completely unreliable narrator and conspiracy to take down Evil corp., was one of the best and strangest shows on TV last year.

The new trailer for Mr Robot Season 2.0 reminds us that season one was only the beginning – and that things can get much stranger from here. Check it out after the jump. Mr. Robot returns July 13th.

When last we saw Elliot, he had just precipitated a global financial attack – or had he? Given his precarious mental state, can we say anything definitive about anything that happened in season one of Mr. Robot?

A new trailer for season two of USA Network’s most unexpected hit series suggests that no matter what we think happened last season, we might be wrong – or, things could be even worse. Check it out after the break.

Poor Christian Slater. He keeps trying the TV thing and failing at it. He finally has a hit on his hands in  USA Network’s award-winning series MR. ROBOT which premiered to strong ratings, reaching a combined L3 audience of 3.7 MM total viewers P2+ (2.83 MM for the 10PM telecast and 823,000 for the 11PM encore). The 10PM telecast also garnered 1.04 MM in P18-49 and 1.20 MM in P25-54 during the June 24 premiere. Overall, the series ranked as a top five premiere for basic cable dramas P18-49 in 2015. An additional 2.7 MM people checked out the pilot across a wide array of digital and VOD platforms. The critically acclaimed series has already been renewed for a second season.  USA is actually bringing Christian Slater to SDCC next week and I’m going to tell him that I am the ONE critic in the entire universe that liked Alone in  the Dark!

Mr. Robot: Hello, Friend!

USA Network’s Mr. Robot (Wednesdays, 10/9C) is, to quote the network’s blurb, ‘a techno thriller that follows Elliot, a young programmer, who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante hacker by night.  Elliot finds himself at a crossroad when the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the firm he is paid to protect.  Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world.’

As all blurbs are, this one is a simplification – for one thing, Elliot is substantially more than merely a cyber-security tech/vigilante. He is both a troubled soul – possibly at the highly functional end of the autism spectrum – who is almost clinically aware of his flaws. As such, he is one of the most relateable protagonists on TV right now.
