The Manic World of Hackers

by

there is a scene during the six episode of USA ‘s “Mr. Robot” in which the lead character, a painfully anxious computer hacker named Elliot, pulls off an extraordinary feat. He cripples a prison’s security system to free a single inmate. It is that sort of stubbornly confident storytelling that has made “Mr. Robot,” which has its first-season finale Wednesday night, one of the most acclaimed shows of the summer. Critics have praised Mr.Malek’s performance, the show’s hacker-world verisimilitude and its visual aesthetic. And even though the show’s ratings still falls below USA stalwarts like “Suits” and “Royal Pains,” the network renewed the show for a second season even before debut.
