Mr. Robot, one of the best new TV shows of 2015–which was a v strong year for television premieres–returns for a second series this summer. Here’s the first promo.
The first episode last year established the show’s credibility by demonstrating a fluent use of tech-speak. By the end of the hour, you knew that nobody on this show would be hitting the “Enhance” key on his laptop.
I’m not going to spoil what happened in the succeeding episodes, because, while the show won awards and gained a passionate following as intense as that of Breaking Bad, it was definitely a cult hit, so many people who might enjoy it have not yet seen the first series.
I loved it, but it’s not for everybody.
BTW, if Elliot is looking for a new target for a cyber attack, I nominate whoever is responsible for developing those irritating link boxes that pollute YouTube videos, and don’t disappear until you dismiss them.
Mr. Robot returns on 13 July 2016.
