Thought - provoking and philosophical
Mr Robot is undoubtedly one of the greater television series of the fantastic produced in the last decade. It mixes mental illness, politics, drama, and computer science to concoct an entertaining forty minutes per week. However, like most dark dramas, this one has its shady moments. The glorifications of drug use in the series makes me feel obligated to accent this troubling factor foremostly. The main protagonist is a morphine addict and is throughout the series seen snorting and gasping. He is also an avid smoker, joining in with most of the other characters. There are explicit scenes of drug use and effects of LSD in some episodes, the most disturbing taking place in a drug house where several seedy - looking folks seem to be under the influence and injecting needles into their arms. According to other sources, though, the most troubling factor in this series is the sexual content. There IS nudity in Mr Robot, however never depicting anything worse than bare buttocks. There is strong and graphic sexual talk, and scenes where couples are clearly having sexual intercourse, the most explicit being arguably one where a man performs anal sex on another while they both groan and gasp. In a later episode, a couple participate in some quite graphic BDSM. These scenes make it absolutely not for anyone that is of preteen age or younger. The graphic violence is limited to rare episodes, but it gets significantly more evident in the second season. The show does not stop there, however. There is a liberal sprinkling of swear words throughout, including the expletives "f--k", motherf--ker", "s--t", "dick", "asshole", "bitch", "nigger" and "nigga". But don't stop these factors from watching the show, though. The show is remarkably intelligent and includes great philosophical pondering and computer science. However, it obviously should be shown exclusively to mature audiences.
