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.

Started watching season 2 the other week. Watched the first episode over the space of about five days ( :shifty: ), and just watched the second episode.

First episode (Be Right Back) had shades of the end of Shaun of the Dead :slol: Hayley Atwell, though :wub: Second episode (White Bear) is the first one that seems to justify whatever hype the show has had. Was expecting like another "hurr durr phones are bad" kind of message and then it goes somewhere else. Didn't expect it at all :slol: Really weird.

White bear is a fantastic episode, possibly my favourite. The only thing more harrowing was seeing all the people missing the point entirely on social media afterwards and actually suggesting it was a good idea

Netflix moves into the "choose your own adventure" space with "Black Mirror" S5

The streaming service is developing a slate of specials that will let viewers choose the next storyline in a TV episode or movie, according to people familiar with the matter. The company expects to release the first of these projects before the end of this year, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are still private.

Viewers will get to choose their own storylines in one episode of the upcoming season of “Black Mirror,” the Emmy-winning science-fiction anthology series. The show is famous for exploring the social implications of technology, including an episode where humans jockey to receive higher ratings from their peers. The fifth season of the show is expected to be released in December.

Brooker was going to do something similar in S3 with the spider episode. I think the idea was that different people would see different versions of the episode with different scary bits. If they watched it a second time then they'd think they know what's coming and get caught out by new surprises.

A deleted tweet from Netflix shows the release date as Dec 28th :o

The tweet mentioned a specific episode so it looks like it might be a one-off Xmas special rather than season 5 which is still being filmed.
