That's exactly right DC, at least in my opinion also. I'm not even liking this season, though will try it out after complaining to the creators as to the direction it was going LOL, yes I love to complain!
I feel it was sad that the show turned into such a drama when it is described as a "cyber-security engineer by day and a vigilante hacker by night"...I thought that was a really cool idea, though it may no have appealed to all, or even less that knows about Linux, which appears in the show from time to time and is even talked about. And, the fact that the creator and crew try to make the technical stuff as real as possible, but why bother if it's just going to be a Drama? with very little hacking, or computer action going on at all.
Then even the first season had Elliot Staring off into Space most of each episode? what the heck is that about, other than the obvious problems Elliot has, this makes for really boring airtime. No need to make him boring just because he has many mental issues, drug addictions etc.?
I also have never liked the Christian Slater character either, he just doesn't fit the role as far as I'm concerned, and don't know how he got some kind of award for that part??? The rest of the actors I'm on board with, they all seem to be good enough and some very good. Rami Malek just needs better Directing and a different script to act from lol.
Thanks to the Mods for leaving this thread here as there is enough Linux content on the show, IMO, to make an exception to keep it here.
