Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Mr. Robot centers on a socially anxious tech genius who moonlights as a vigilante, using his skills to squash everyday evil in a darkly disappointing world. Strong, unbleeped language includes "f--k" and "s--t," and the main character uses illegal drugs to manage his mental health (albeit in a highly measured way, not as an addict). Sex is strongly suggested but not actually shown, although naked bodies are visible from the side, and brand names and logos (such as McDonald's and Forever 21) are part of the landscape.
Sex is strongly suggested in some scenes, where others show bare bottoms and thrusting. A character goes home to his pregnant wife who insists on being strapped to the bed in full S&M gear, then gagged before sex.

Words like "s--t" and "f--k" are audible, along with "dickhead," "piss," etc.

Name brands are mentioned, and some logos are visible (McDonald's, Twinkies, Facebook, etc.).
