Rami Malek and Christian Slater in Mr. Robot

Rami Malek and Christian Slater in Mr. Robot

Now that USA’s Mr. Robot stands to be wreathed in well-deserved honors this awards season (with a Golden Globe for Best Drama Series and a Best Supporting win for Slater already under its belt), it’s the perfect time to catch up on the much-buzzed-about, paranoid hacker drama. Fortunately, Season One is has been issued on disc. Production values and performances are every bit as strong as you’ve heard, with outstanding star turns by Slater (Bullet to the Head), Carly Chaikin (TV’s Suburgatory), and the immensely talented Rami Malek (The Master) leading the charge.  Creator and showrunner Sam Esmail brings his unique vision of the evils of corporate America to pulsating life, and gives some background on the formulation and production of the show on the disc’s “Making Of” featurette.

Other special features include deleted scenes and a gag reel.  The special features aren’t all that special, truth be told, but no matter—the show itself is well worth checking out all on its own.  Don’t think about this one, just buy it—selling out to corporate entertainment overlords will never feel so good.
