After a few tense minutes of banging computer keys and shouting “I’m almost in” or “Take down the firewall,” the USA network has managed to upload the pilot for its new hacker drama, Mr. Robot, to YouTube. The show stars Rami Malek as an Anonymous-style hacker vigilante who fights crime by rambling about techno jargon. Eventually he meets Christian Slater, the titular Mr. Robot, who is the leader of a mysterious team of super-hackers. It’ll premiere on old-school TV on June 24, but as we said, the pilot is on YouTube (and we’ve embedded it below).

There’s not much to say beyond that, so let’s skim through this thing and pick out some highlights:

It opens with Malek giving a monologue about rich people destroying the world.
