I would have definitely liked the show with a normal guy taking people down by himself and maybe some help gets added on.
If that is what you like, than you should go watch a show like Scorpion. That seems to be more in tune with the kind of show you were expecting. Scorpion was an ok show, but stopped watching it because it was always one emergency piled on top of another and I hate shows that use cliches and timers to create suspense.
As for Mr. Robot, it is slowly winning me back. I disliked the 3rd episode and hate the drug coma one, but the last few have been very good. I like the despair, struggle and dark material. Most of the best shows have it is as running theme like GOT, Breaking Bad, BSG, etc.
Some of my biggest criticism is how this show seems to steal the best ideas from other movies and shows like Fight Club, American Psycho, and Breaking Bad. I also am growing tired of the "is Mr. Robot real game" the try to play. Some really great scenes last episode, some even with a hint of originality. The balls in you mouth speech and the honest talk he finally had with his therapist about being alone was some good stuff.
Like they say, different strokes for different folks, but I am glad they are getting a second season to explore these characters.
