About halfway through this episode (1.4), the two "Tickets" signs become fully illuminated. Before, both "Ks" were out as was a "T" on the left hand sign. All globes in the signs are only illuminated for one scene - in all following scenes, they revert to their partially illuminated states. See more »

I watched season 1, episode 1 and thought "Hey, this is pretty good." Elliot was an interesting lead character, a neurotic computer programmer with a drug problem. He is also a hacker tackling cyber criminals from individual sex offenders up to world corporations run by the elite few. It also tapped into the disaffection with modern day life, false heroes, politicians, and technology out of control. 'Fuck society' was our anti-hero's mantra.
Three episodes later. Each got progressively worse. Episode 4 was a pile of crap. Few of the support characters are believable. The hacker group Elliot joined dedicated to freeing the world are boring and predictable. The most predictable thing was the politically correct casting, a black one, a hot one, a Muslim one, a fat geeky one, and a Hollywood "star" Christian Slater). The main plot has become more and more ludicrous. To spice it up we have lots more drugs, some straight sex, some gay sex, an unexpected lesbian kiss and gratuitous violence in the shape of paying a tramp to beat him up. Also the worse cold turkey sequence I've ever seen. After a really promising first episode I felt let down.
I will not be watching any more Mr Robot.
