Mr. Robot Summer Streaming Club!


-mr. robot

Hey guys! Super excited to let you know that I’m partnering with shomi for their brand-new Streaming Club! It’s basically like book clubs, but for TV. The show I’m going to be watching and talking about with you guys?

Mr. Robot!

One of the shows on shomi’s Summer Streaming List, Mr. Robot is about a vigilante hacker who gets caught up in the dangerous world of cybercrime. It won the Golden Globe for Best TV Drama and Season Two premieres this week on Showcase, so I really want to catch up on Season One (exclusively available to stream on shomi) as quick as I can.

Watch along with me using #shomiSummer so that we can talk about Mr. Robot together! I’ve heard nothing but good things about it so I’m super stoked to hear all of your thoughts, too.

BONUS PRIZE – THINGS OF INTEREST TO YOU, FRIENDS: If you join the Facebook Event Page and tweet with me about the show using #shomiSummer, you could win the best Hosting Package to throw your own finale party (which includes a Chromecast, Bose Mini Speakers, décor, snacks, and a paid 6-month subscription to shomi).

If that wasn’t cool enough, by joining the conversation using #shomiSummer on the Streaming Club Facebook event page you’ll also be entered to win the Ultimate Streaming Experience prize pack, which includes Apple TV, a 60” Samsung TV, a Samsung Curved Sound Bar, and a one-year subscription to shomi. Dang!!

I’ll be hosting my own Mr. Robot finale party the week of July 25th, so look out for more details on when I’ll be streaming it live from the Facebook Streaming Club event page so you can join in. We can hang out together!

So what are you waiting for!! Join me in the Mr. Robot Streaming Club and share with me all your Mr. Robot feels. Let’s get this going!
