Since the second season of Mr. Robot has taken its start, I thought it was time to watch the first one. The series has great reviews and I went in with high hopes. I’m not going to lie, I really liked the series. It didn’t however hit my (nonexistent) top series list. Mr. Robot had some flaws but it was still a fun and extraordinary series to watch.
Let’s start with the negative parts. I didn’t really see a clear storyline throughout the season. I wished there would have been a story we got to follow from episode 1 to 10. There might have been one but if that is the case then it was very vague. I also feel like the first episodes really got my attention but the last one was just a little weak. I didn’t get that chocking last episode where everything became clear or a hint for the next season. I mean, it might just be me that feels that way.
Other than that I must say that it is one hell of a unique story and Rami Malek did an amazing job playing Elliot. It’s also really fun to see a Swedish person (Tyrell Wellick) that talks Swedish in this series. I am however going to tell anyone that doesn’t hear it that his wife spoke Danish which is very different (specially for a swede). It was really fun to understand everything Tyrell Wellick said but I couldn’t understand any of what she said (so don’t say Swedish and Danish are similar, haha). I just feel like if there’s a foreign language in a series it’s never Swedish so it was fun to understand everything he said. I am however going to say that it did not sound “serious” in Swedish, at least I couldn’t take him serious.
Wow, a long review. I do however think you should check out Mr. Robot if you haven’t. Watch the first three episodes and then decide if you going to watch it all. Have a lovely day and I hope you won’t be hacked!
