I just started watching season 1 a couple weeks ago and am through season 2 already. With the exception of what I'll discuss below, the show is very good. The acting is good, story is great (episodes discussed below excluded)...it keeps you wanting to know what happens next. All that said, for some reason there is 1 episode per season (or large chunks of said episode) that left me feeling like I wasted my time. A perfect example of this is the first 20 min of season 2, episode 6 where Elliot, Darlene, Mr Robot and the mother are supposed to be a sitcom family going on a road trip / vacation; complete with background / Audience laughter. The entire portion of the episode is filmed while they are in a car, with the camera mounted on the hood, looking through the windshield with fake 'green screen' effects intended to portray the car in motion. This part of the episode is supposed to be Elliot creating an alternate reality in his head while he's getting the crap beat out of him. I cannot even give this an E for effort....It's a complete fail! Topped off with multiple cameo appearances by ALF. It was painful to watch and made me think that Sam Esmail was double dog dared to see if he could write and direct some of the worst television for the first part of an episode then see if he could do a 180 during the second half, leaving the audience with some of the best TV...good enough so the viewers totally forgot how bad the fist part was. Anyway, I will not go into the 'bad' episode in season 1 but you will know it when you see it...or after you get through 10-15 episodes you'll realize how bad a particular episode was.If not for these episodes, I would have given the series a solid 9/10 through the first 2 seasons.

I enjoyed the clever season 1. Season 2 got a bit complicated but there were some twist in the plot that caught my atention. Season 3 I got completely lost and the preach against capitalism started to get really annoying.
The second season of Mr. Robot was either trying to do too little or too much; I heard an equal amount of complaints that it was moving too slowly and that way too much was happening.
