Elliot Alderson: [voiceover] It's one thing to question your mind. It's another to question your eyes and ears. But then again: Isn't it all the same, our senses just mediocre inputs for our brain? Sure, we rely on them, trust they accurately portray the real world around us, but what if the haunting truth is, they can't? That what we perceive isn't the real world at all but just our mind's best guess?

S2: Carries the same strengths from the first season, although the weaknesses are a little more evident too
29 March 2017 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

I think my opinion on the first season of Mr. Robot was not unique; I found it slick and engaging, but yet also very conscious of its own style to the point where it could seem superficial in its construct. This continues into the second season in a way that manages to retain the mystery of the first season (its strength) but as a result does rather feel like the delivery is the focus, with the content being a close second. In keeping with this, we pick-up the second season without a direct link to the ending of the first. Major characters are missing; supporting characters are brought to the fore, and a whole new subplot of trouble engages Elliot while his friends and otherwise all try to build on the work of the first season.

In this approach the film manages to get back into the strength of the first season in that we are not wholly sure what is going on, what is real, or what the motivations are of the various characters. This sense of mystery helps the narrative while also not being the whole thing it has going for it; there is also plenty of interest moving forward, as well as good material regarding Elliot's struggle with what he now knows is a wholly internal creation of self. The downside of this is that at times it feels like the season is working too hard to be a mystery, and that the detail of what we see versus what is really happening is not going to be resolved and that we should just go with it.

Thankfully it is engaging enough to make "go with it" a viable option, and I did enjoy the twisting narratives and characters. I'm not sure this will be as strong a third time around though. The second season delivers a lot in the moments, but not as much in the bigger picture of the show; in particular the closing episodes seem to be about creating/leaving questions rather than providing a satisfying end to the season. We will see what the third season brings, but certainly I will be there for hopefully more of the strengths (the style, the high production values, the performances) but maybe more that really grounds the show in the content and characters as a priority.
