In Mr. Robot, Elliot Alderson wanted to save the world: by breaking it first – in “the single greatest incident of wealth redistribution in history.” It was daunting, even for a hacker as brilliant as Elliot, given his debilitating social anxiety disorder, clinical depression, paranoia, and delusions. But he was not alone. Elliot had a secret: Mr. Robot.
Elliot also had fsociety, a small but talented group of vigilante anarchists working to bring down the financial system by encrypting the files of the world’s largest finance conglomerate, E-Corp, erasing everyone’s debt, and turning credit cards into plastic junk with a few clicks, in what became known as the Five/Nine hack.
Of course, utopia failed to spring up overnight, and the ensuing game of global dominance brought the real monsters out of the woodwork.
The final season was named on Best of 2019 lists from AV Club to Complex, among others, and has a 97% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, where it was #34 on their list of the Best TV Shows of 2019.
All four seasons of Mr. Robot are available on Showmax.
