7 Reasons You Should Watch Mr. Robot Right Now

Because if you haven't already, you have seriously been missing out.


Hello friend.

Even though Mr. Robot may not be as widely watched as the likes of Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, ask anyone that has already had the pleasure to acquaint themselves with the show and there is a big chance they will tell you it's just as good, if not better.

The second season of Mr. Robot recently came to an expectedly dramatic conclusion and the show has unsurprisingly been commissioned for a third series, due to air in 2017. So if you haven't already started watching Mr. Robot, now is the time to take advantage of your free Amazon Prime trial.

Doing so means you can binge on 22 mind-bendingly fascinating episodes that tell the story of a mentally ill man and a team of rebellious computer hackers trying to take down a multi-billion dollar conglomerate. If you're not convinced, here's why you need to watch it.

7. It's The Most Stylish Show Since Breaking Bad

USA Network

Breaking Bad was the king of the montage sequence, the lord of the time lapse, the god of utilising popular music in intelligent and awesome ways that often underscored visually breathtaking scenes. No matter what was onscreen, Breaking Bad made it look cool with its distinctive, idiosyncratic style.

However, Mr. Robot has arrived to put BB in its place, and that place is so over three years ago. Whoever the director of any given episode is, be it the show's creator Sam Esmail or another insanely talented director roped in, regardless as to which twists and turns are featured in the narrative, you just know that you are going to be treated to a feast for the eyes.

Each episode has its own breathtaking moments that will be singed into your memory, whether it's a time lapse of how capitalism comes along to replace your favourite independently-owned business, or a terrifying sociopath strangling a woman to death with a cool song scoring the scene.
