Mr. Robot, the smash hit show starring Rami Malek, Carly Chaikin and Christian Slater; has inspired a group of ‘fsociety’ (the fictional hacker collective on the show) acolytes to hack the real world with the help of the streaming service shomi.

For those of you not in the know, Mr. Robot follows Elliot, a young programmer, who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and as a vigilante hacker by night. The show received rave reviews on its original release, and is currently available to enjoy in all of its binge-watching glory exclusively on shomi.

The system won’t crash itself. Get ready. Wealth distribution op: imminent.#anewsocietyrises
