‘Mr. Robot’ coming to Amazon Prime in UK

by Phil Wheat

It has been announced that Mr. Robot , one of the most buzzworthy US TV shows of the year, will launch exclusively for Amazon Prime members in the UK, Germany and Austria. All 10 episodes of the critically lauded series from Universal will be available to stream for Prime members from Friday 16th October 2015.

Mr. Robot stars Rami Malek (The Pacific) as Elliot, a young computer programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante hacker by night. Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group played by Christian Slater (Nymphomaniac) recruits him to destroy the firm he is paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world.

Mr. Robot has been described as “The Social Network meets ‘Occupy Wall Street’” and has already won widespread praise from fans and critics alike;  referred to as an “addictive, entertaining and popular out-of-nowhere summer series” (The Hollywood Reporter), a “visually striking, subversive and often surprising drama” (Rolling Stone), “a modern classic” (www.forbes.com),  a “gripping thriller to binge-watch” (People) and “the best hacking show yet” (Wired).
