Spoilers

Things always drop off a little after the pilot, especially when you’re cutting down to your normal run time. Episode 2 has little in the way of big moments, but a lot in the way of tension.

Beginning with Elliot in the middle of the lions den, the besuited men of Evil Corp, then taking down drug dealer, and all round awful person Cisco. It’s also capped with a couple visits to Mr Robot and his hacktivists, with a big WTF ending as he’s pushed off a pier onto some rocks.

It’s an episode that still has the charm of the first, with a mix of The Matrix and David Fincher, and great central performances, including Rami Malek as the socially awkward Elliot.

Overall it’s super excellent.

Rating: B  7/10
