Mr. Robot (2015-)

We can do more, buy more, live more but we’ve never been less free.

The Strain (2014-)

Another fun and bitter sweet fantasy from Del Toro.

When I watch films like Hellboy, Pacific Rim and Julia’s Eyes I can’t help but appreciate this guy’s amazing imagination and love of storytelling.
