Mr. Robot is one of those shows that everybody’s talking about. It’s being praised by practically every TV critic in the land, has amassed a huge legion of fans, and seems to have tapped into both our love of technology and our paranoia about the huge corporations who run that technology. Everybody seems to love this show, so why did it take me so long to get into it?
With smart writing, excellent visuals, and stellar performances, it was easy to get completely absorbed in Fargo, in part because it reminded me a lot of another one of my favorite binge-watching shows: Breaking Bad.
