We've just binged season one and two, completing it tonight.
I think more seemed to happen in S2, and being only 7 episodes rather than 13 made a nice change.
S1 I was waiting and waiting for the massive shock, but it didn't really happen. It was quite pedestrian really, especially when compared to Sam Esmails brilliant Mr Robot. His direction in S1 was superb though, lots of Mr Robot nods such as the descending spiral staircase shot, split screens etc. Oh and the score was fantastic in places too. But overall, the story was just OK, nothing mind blowing. I'd give S1 a 7/10.
S2 wasn't quite as intriguing, but it was faster paced. I enjoyed it. I did suss out what was coming ahead of the reveals, so it wasn't nearly as clever as M.R was, but definitely worth a watch. I'd also score S2 as 7/10, both seasons are good, but in slightly different ways.
I think overall I enjoyed it more than Season 1. Feels like it's done now though and I don't think we need to see anymore. It's a thinking story, but not a particularly exciting one. And it's difficult to see where they could go now anyway.
Janelle Monae was great as always. As were Cooper and Joan Cusack, the latter albeit briefly. And at least we had the link to the first season with Cruz's character. Would have been good though to have seen more Cannavale, and perhaps Whigham again.
Definitely only being 7 episodes helped as well. But it did also miss Esmail's touch.
One I'd recommend if you had literally ran out of things to watch. There is much better available on Amazon. Including Mr. Robot of course.
