I wanted to like this show. I really did. No kidding. After all, they use Kali Linux. But Mr Robot sucks.
What’s not to love?
Well, there’s this: here we have a software genius who is… let’s count the cliches:
1) socially awkward.
3) outside society
4) fucking nuts
That enough? It’s like fat shaming. Just stop it already. This guy is so crazy HE DOESN’T RECOGNIZE HIS OWN FUCKING SISTER! Am I emphatic enough? HE’S SO FUCKING CRAZY HE THINKS HIS DEAD DAD IS TALKING TO HIM. Got it? No? He is in prison and thinks he’s watching a ball game from the stands. You’d be hard-pressed to find someone in an insane asylum this psychotic. And that person, I’d bet, is not a software developer.
Software developers might be slightly nerdish, although that stereotype is getting thin, but they are not insane. They are not psychotic. They know when they see their sisters. They don’t think their dead fathers are talking to them — those whose fathers are dead, which is likely the minority.
I am so tired of the cliches. Doesn’t society get tired of the cliches?
So here’s a big FU to the writers. Mr Robot sucks. Go away. Get jobs digging ditches. Do anything but promulgate these tired, BS stereotypes.
Oh yeah, 27 barf bags:
