60 minutes

Mr. Robot centers on a young programmer, Elliot (Rami Malek), who suffers from a debilitating anti-social disorder and decides that he can only connect to people by hacking them. He finds himself in the intersection between a cybersecurity firm he works for and the underworld organizations that are recruiting him to bring down corporate America. Slater plays Mr. Robot, a mysterious anarchist who recruits Elliot. Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin (“True Detective”) and Chad Hamilton (“Breakup at a Wedding”) also executive produce.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I liked the premise. I like that they actually use UNIX commands, the tech is pretty good. But man is it slow. It is like watching paint dry. I like Elliot. I love his dry wit. But can we contemplate his navel a bit less and tell a story?
