The first episode of Mr. Robot is intriguing. The next 2 or 3 episodes were watchable. But OMG, what a bore it became. Drug addict programmer who is constantly talking to himself in his head and walks around with a mostly deer-in-headlights expression. I reached the “who cares?” level and quit watching.
Wow, really? I’ve read nothing but glowing reviews of Mr. Robot and I liked the first episode. Can’t wait to watch the rest and see if it goes downhill like you say.
