Just started Arkangel and already spotted reused concepts from earlier eps in the first five minutes.


This is why the second half of the season is better imo

I don't know, S4 was kinda 'eh' for me. I mean, I enjoyed it, but it really isn't a patch on the earlier ones.

Started watching Hang the DJ and was getting bored after the first ten minutes but stuck with it and actually quite liked it.

This is the best one in S4 I think.

Metalhead - strawberry float, that's going to actually happen isn't it.

Edit: Saw Black museum last night, that's some dark gooseberry fool, really good though.

Obligatory s4 ranking list:

1. Black Museum
2. Metalhead
3. Hang the DJ
4. Crocodile
5. Arkangel
6. USS Calister - really didn't like this one

Just watched the last episode of season 1. Somewhat surprised that people in here seemed to think it was great :shifty: Jodie Whittaker was good, but there wasn't exactly much going on (there wasn't even really a twist or anything, was there? Bloke is insecure and paranoid, turns out he's not actually paranoid, gets a bit aggressive with people, END Bit of a disappointment so far, but I've heard the later episodes get a bit better.

It's a cracking episode. I imagine it doesn't have the impact it did when it was first released. I remember watching the original broadcast and thinking it was ahead of its time, intense television.

That was almost 7 years ago :shock:.

I've got into watching this for the first time over the last month or so. I've got 4x05 and 4x06 left plus San Junipero.

So far I'd say my favourite episodes are USS Callister, Hated in the Nation and Shut Up and Dance.

Pretty great series to be honest, kind of surprised I never gave it a go earlier.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

They are pretty awesome. My favourite was san junipero and i think i still have one to watch. Can’t wait to see the new series. Shut up and dance was a memorable one with a shock ending.
