I think Mr. Robot is one of the best new shows of the year, I couldn’t wait for each weekly episode to air, and I’m thrilled it’s coming back for a second season, but, at the same time, every episode, I couldn’t stop thinking about its disappeared ancestor: I wonder if this guy’s seen Rubicon. The conspiracy, the debt to seventies thrillers, the lone troubled genius with the sad eyes, even the actor Michael Cristofer playing basically the same role. I see Rubicon when I watch Mr. Robot.
