The USA network drama thriller series, Mr. Robot, returns for its 3rd season tonight at 10 pm . Created by Sam Esmail and starring Rami Malek, the series has received mass appeal winning the Golden Globe for Best Television Series in 2016. It also received over 5 Emmy nominations and continues to stake its claim as one of the most suspenseful psychological programs on broadcast television. Malek, starring as Eliot Anderson, is a savvy tech hacker that struggles with chronic anxiety and depression. His life has never been the same upon meeting the shadowy rebel leader, “Mr. Robot,” (played by Christian Slater) who is leading a cyber hack operation with intentions of wiping out all recorded global debt.
Critics are already claiming the 3rd season is a masterpiece that has tightened the loose ends of its developing season 1 and 2. After the power outage of last season’s finale, Eliot is at a loss and attempting to determine the next course of action. His once devoted sister has now fled and on the run from authorities. Their leader, Mr. Robot, has revealed his true colors as a much more psychopathic figure than before. Still, the cause he committed himself to is weighing heavy on his heart and must find a way to overcome not only those around him, but demons that lie still within.
The easiest way to describe the feel of this show is if the hacker group, Anonymous collided with the classic film, Fight Club. It has a well-balanced strata of engagement and intellect that will leave you at the edge of your seat. Check it out and let us know if it lived up to your expectations!
