“Mr. Robot” (USA)
As a summer series on the former “blue skies” network USA, this cerebral hacker drama came out of left field. Its plot, about a drugged-up computer genius who gets drafted into a geek collective trying to cripple the global financial system, was both timely and suspenseful. Series creator and showrunner Sam Esmail has a skewed, confident style and in actor Rami Malek found the right person to star in his paranoid fever dream.
