Sep 15 Sep 15 We're all Mr. Robot: gender and justice in cyber-dystopia [Ares Magazine] Lynne Peskoe-Yang reviews, sci-fi My new review of Mr. Robot (USA) is live on Ares. This is the crux of Mr. Robot’s unique appeal to viewers from diverse backgrounds. With every episode, Mr. Robot shows that neither physical violence nor psychological trauma need follow the lines of systemic power; justice is served when everyone has an equal potential for suffering. Thus, the audience is invited to see themselves in this dramatic alternate reality, not simply as love interests or tragedy-porn but as potential agents of good and evil on par with characters of all identities. The genius of Mr. Robot is to give each audience member full access to the moral pain depicted onscreen.
