Mr. Robot Stars Preview New USA Drama: It Goes Beyond Hacking!

at . Comments

Be prepared, TV Fanatics: Mr. Robot may hit very close to home.

And by home, we're talking your actual home and what you think may be a private life because so much of how we live in 2015 takes place by communicating via modern technology (like how you're online reading this right now!).

On Mr. Robot Season 1 Episode 1, we meet Elliot, played by Rami Malek, who is a lonely, socially inept individual who hacks into people's lives for the fun of it .. but finds a bigger purpose once he meets Mr. Robot, portrayed by Christian Slater.

As Slater and Malek told us on the red carpet at last month's NBC Universal Cable upfronts, the show is much more than a hacker drama.

Let's see what they had to say about the exciting new series.

Mr. Robot airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on USA.

Mr. Robot Season 1 Episode 1 Quotes

Hello, friend. Hello, friend? That's lame. Maybe I should give you a name, but that's a slippery slope. You're only in my head. We have to remember that. Shit.

Elliot

Krista: What is it about society that disappoints you so much?
Elliot: Oh, I don't know. Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it's that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit. The world itself's just one big hoax.
