just watched the pilot ep. Very good. I love hacking movies, but the problem with most of them is that it's just a bunch of scenes of the hacker sitting at a computer writing code... then they get chased around like they're in a Mission Impossible movie. This show did the smart thing and made it more of a character study.
[SPOILER - highlight to read]: I think Mr. Robot (Slader) is Elliot or Eillot is Mr. Robot, they are the same. The show is called Mr. Robot and with one main character. This is like a Fight Club thing.
Took a bit of a turn into comicbook villainesque weirdness with Wellwick this week. He pays homeless men so he can beat them up...he's secretly gay and uses his liaisons to hack his employees. He participates in bondage fetishism with his pregnant wife.
The scene in the bar with the appletinis when the barman doesn't even acknowledge Slater's character seemed too big of a hint. Same in the office. Either they are making that twist too obvious or its all a deliberate sleight of hand.
It's hard to tell. As people have clearly interacted with him(the entire fsociety). But he's also been completely ignored(at allsafe, on the train aside from Elliot, and at the bar). It could just be people don't care enough to talk to him or something. But he could be a figment.
However what would cause him to suddenly start imagining him and only him? And nothing else trippy seems to be going on.
It's just something we can speculate on until we find out the truth one way or the other.
He interacted with the 'agents' following Elliot. Which seem very much like a paranoid delusion. I don't think the ones that take him to E-corp are the same ones on the train or outside the restaurant when he's spying on his psychiatrist.

Really can't see Mr. R being real, especially considering the scene at Elliott's cubicle. He was talking louder than anyone in the room and not only was he ignored, but the woman he was making cat calls to didn't even glance at him. Not to mention even Elliot must adhere to the dress code, but Mr. R was at his desk in regular attire, and there's no way he could have snuck in there with no one noticing him, especially when he was wearing regular clothes. There are way too many moments during that scene that Mr. R should have been noticed but wasn't. Unless the people of this universe have incredibly selective sensory receptors, there is no way in hell he can be real. If he does turn out to be real, I will immediately be calling BS
I was pleasantly surprised with Ollie. Thought they would take the standard "douche cheating boyfriend unwittingly aids villains to protect his own ass" route. Was shocked when he instead told Angela the truth and asked for forgiveness. Pretty sure she will take the CD to Elliot, who will get to the bottom of the rapper hackers plan.
Tyrell is a very interesting villain, and his quest to be Cto is clearly going to be some frank Underwood style manipulation. His wife is like a more extreme version of Vanessa fisk. They make a great villain couple.
Now that Elliot is officially going to war with Evil Corp, I predict he and Tyrell will be playing hacker cat and mouse
Wonder what Elliots boss will uncover
I have a feeling that Elliott's drug dealer girlfriend will be dead by the end of the season
