    90% of all household debt in the U.S. is thanks to people just trying to maintain or reach a modest middle-class life style accessible to their parents and grandparents, but you're more bothered by a few bimbos who run up credit card debt? And you call your 'liberal' or 'left'??
    Alachia, Alachia, Alachia…

  2. Calcifar PantsOwl

    Hey Alachia, do you watch Black Sails at all ? It seems quite underrated.

    crash & burn – hackers is still one of my all time favorite movies, it definitely influenced my becoming a programmer. Doesn't matter how unrealistic it is, it's awesome.

  4. Reztexch Iomined

    I work regularly with companies like Google, Cisco and IBM, most of people there just find this show kind of silly and unrealistic. Like the adult version of emo. "The World is only Pain and suffering," "Everything around us is just there to sedate us," "The corporations are evil and destroying everyone man." "The only way to express my pain and emotional suffering is through sexual gratification, to fill the void left in my intensely unemotional and lonely person." It's kind of ironically and unintentionally hilarious; truly the mark of "profundity." lol πŸ˜›

    lol, patrick bateman doll. that's creepy but cool. just like american psycho.

    So far (half way through season 1) I haven't found the main character particularly likable. Is it just me?

  7. scanspeak00

    It's nice knowing that I seem to have the same personality type as you Alachia. I started watching this series recently but have not followed up, must get back into it.

    Alachia, in season 2, the characters face the consequences of the revolution. They don't gloss over the bad parts of it. Just touching on your issue with it

  9. John William Schmid

    Too progressive because the idea that erasing debt will solve everything? Uhh dunno if they think so much it will solve everything, as much as it would be the largest redistribution of wealth in the history of the world (unsure of the exact line, but its said by Mr. R in ep 1 or 2) ultimately acting as the spark that starts the revolution. So they aren't trying to solve anything, but completely erase it and start anew, neither liberal nor conservative. Anarchist? Bernie Sanders (lol)? Let it be known I love that jewish bastard. Wish him the world, oh and the presidency.

  10. Mr Cartoonster

    Lots of Linux/UNIX talk. Never thought I'd live to see the day that GNOME and KDE referenced on tv. Also a crap load of NMAP and a lot of cool social engineering and phreaking too. Some one grew up reading 2600.

    So glad you liked this so much!! I relate A LOT to Elliott, actually. Finding this show last summer, during a particularly dark time in my life as well, was honestly a lifesaver. Cannot wait for season 2 to get here already.
    And stuff like "mandatory," "must-watch," and "essential viewing" are all things I said to friends when recommending to them.

  12. CLegee

    I would actually argue that – regarding the politics of the show, and I think this will play out in season 2 – while we do feel for Eliot, maybe even identify with him, and pull for him, that the show doesn't necessarily endorse him hitting the big reset button. Yes, Evil Corp is the clear villain, and Eliot's goals are noble, the show doesn't argue otherwise, but I think his idealism and the fallout of the hack may come around to bite him – it won't make for good drama otherwise :P. I get why the show may seem off-puttingly liberal at first, but I think when Eliot's plan is put in action, he'll hit some roadblocks in the aftermath

    Thanks for the review and recommendation. I've been procrastinating about watching Mr. Robot for months. I'm on episode 4 and so far it's wonderful. The first episode was a masterpiece. The dialogue, direction, and cinematography were absolutely brilliant.

  14. FlyBaby

    I just binge watched it on Hulu. Great show. Can't wait for season 2.Ten minutes in he is thinking to himself and I saying, OK he is just saying what may people feel but never say or possibly wont admit to themselves, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Thanks for the Recommendation.

    I really wanted to like this show.. and it was doing ok up until a certain point… But when it ended up being the nearly same as a certain late 90s movie… EVEN TO THE POINT of playing a certain famous song from a scene in said 90s movie. I really wish it didn't go the direction it did..
