TV I HAVE ENJOYED
a few of my favourites
Okay, I am very late to the party of Mr Robot. I must confess, I hadn't even seen any reviews about it. Ashamed to say I stumbled upon it by chance, as my son was going to watch it. I am now engrossed. Half way through the four seasons. It is about a young man involved in cyber-crime, but it's so much more than that. Big business controlling us, government in bed, what society means, the fragility of society right now. You name it. It feels prescient, much more than just entertainment. It takes you into a world which you might already be feeling you co-exist in, and makes you feel very uncomfortable.
I had already seen, like most, Rami Malek in the Queen film Bohemian Rhapsody for which he deservedly won an Oscar for best male lead. It isn't just that he is captivatingly good, which he is, it is everything about the support cast Christian Slater, Grace Gummer, BD Wong and so many other great performances. Writer Sam Esmail wrote, directed and produced the show. Hats off to having made something so special and multi-award winning. Can't wait to watch the next thing he's done.
