Quick-Thoughts: Mr. Robot Season 2 (2016)

The Following Review is Spoiler-Free 

I totally forgot just how much superior Mr. Robot is to most TV shows out there. If you don’t know already, I watched the first season of Mr. Robot way back when it first came out in 2015. Even though, I ended up nearly worshipping that 10-part extravaganza of television, the cramming of so many major twists and turns in the last few episodes of that initial season ended up being a major turn-off for me. But hey; here we are a few years later and I’ve whole-heartedly decided to finish the show, once in for all. 

I idolize how season 2 of Mr. Robot is almost just a gradual progression in Elliot confronting the “voice” inside his head (AKA, facing himself and his aspirations rather than hiding from them, whether that be through means of control or compromise). A normal writer/studio would’ve just instantly jumped into the next set of big occurring actions in the plot without thinking of the character’s emotional and psychological conflict after creating such an event like the Five/Nine hack. But, creator Sam Esmail clearly knew that the show would function more triumphantly if he dedicated a whole season to delving into Elliot’s mental quarrels. 

In other words, Mr. Robot season 2 is unconventional genius, and I’m dying to see season 3 and 4. I’m so happy that I’ve convinced myself to get back into this series.
