    USA put the show on Youtube early. Expected normal USA stuff but actually really good. The only issue I have with it is the creator is banging Emmy Rossum.

    The pilot was pretty solid.. The name of the show is pretty fucking stupid though

    Just watched. It's good. I recommend watching the pilot.

    If you have the xfinity tv app they already have it up

    Has a Dexter feel to it but a lot darker. No comedic relief in this thing.

    God damn that was a great pilot.

    Some thoughts:

    - Never heard of Rami Malek prior to this show. He absolutely killed it in what has to be a very difficult character to play on screen.
    - Loved all the internal monologue of his character throughout the episode.
    - I'm interested in both the overall plot and the subplots established.
    - Immediate feels: That guy picked up his dog by the throat through his collar? Man needs to die.
    - Christian Mother Fucking Slater.
    - Immediate feels: Wait, Elliot saved the dog? Burn the world to the ground, buddy. John Wick this shit. I'm with you 100%.
    - My only minor gripe is having Elliot hear this bad company as Evil Corp everytime a character says it. Seems unnecessary and base for such an intelligent show.

    Probably my favorite pilot ever on USA.

    Previews from next show are that he's in the hospital (and I'm assuming it's from the Corey Feldman push, right? Or was it from the drug dealer?)

    Either way, I see him freelancing for a while - not on Mr Robots team or working for Evil Corp.

    Yes. There's that hacker chick that's always yelling at him.

    Also - it would be pretty :meh: if Mr Robot is in his mind. Too much of a fight club rip off. (Spoiler alert)

    Also I laughed at evil corp's logo being pretty much a copy of Enron's

    The fuck? He has interacted with the rest of the Hackers. If he isn't real neither is the group.

    I'm going to have to watch it again. The hacker chick yelled at Eliot and Christian Slater told Eliot that he'll learn to deal with it but I cant remember her yelling at Mr. Robot.
    It would be a bit too fight club, though, since people are already comparing the two - even the director in an interview I read.

    Yeah, I am trying to remember a point where there was actual dialogue between Mr. Robot and another character besides Elliot. I can't think of one off the top of my head, but this is only my memory from one viewing.

    It would be very Fight Club if he was a facet of Elliot's personality, but it would also explain a lot of the questions regarding the character. The plot has certainly focused on Elliot's mental problems for a reason.

    In the latest episode when he goes to the arcade. CS is playing duck hunt. He shots a duck the only person to react was Eliot. The hacker chick seems to talk to CS but she could be talking to Eliot the fat Hacker says "they are down Boss" once again it appears he is talking to CS but it could be Eliot. Lastly when Eliot asks "Mr. Robot "; "how did she know where I live" I got a big Marla Singer flashback.

    I noticed all these things after I read ugafish ' post. I originally thought others had interacted with Mr Robot, but all interactions are very superficial to say the least. For now I am Team Eliot is Mr Robot.

    The blonde friend, the dealer, or the hacker?
    None of them are that hard to look at imo.

    The dealer is money, other 2 are mediocre(TV standards)

    Think it's obvious Mr. Robot isn't real, just hope they can build the plot after it's revealed. USA failed miserably building Suits which had great potential.

    Episode 1.

    1. He tells us he is not going to give us a name because it is bad enough he is talking to an imaginary friend.

    2. First appearance of Mr Robot on subway he is screaming yet no one seems to notice.

    3. Eliot's rant to the Dr, he says Fuck Society at least twice. It's important to note the rant is all in Eliot's head.

    4. Mr Robots 2nd appearance is when Eliot spies on the Dr outside the restaurant. Mr Robot appears to be asking for change from two guys. You really can't tell if they interact with him. But, when Eliot looks down and quickly looks back up Robot is gone.

    5. On the subway when Mr Robot tells him to come with only if he didn't delete the file, the car seems empty. When Eliot gets off there is one passenger who looks at Eliot when he gets off like who the fuck is he talking to and following .

    6. First time at the Arcade Mr Robot knocks. Black hacker opens the door only looks at Eliot looks annoyed like he knows him. Hacker chick only looks at Eliot. No one interacts directly with Robot. On the ride home Eliot tells us again he created us ;his imaginary friend.

    7. When he goes back to the Arcade he asks the hacker chick "where's your boss" her reply like Marla Singer "cut the bullshit". Right away Mr Robot appears.

    Team Mr Robot is inside Eliot's head. We are Mr. Robot.
