If you think that one's grim, you ain't seen nothing yet.

The first episode isn't the best to judge the series on. Watch S1E2 then you'll know if it's for you or not.

Ahhhh that was a great little thing, although wasn't too keen on the spider obsession in that one.

Overall, they were all quite good for one reason or another.

Is it worth watching the first two seasons first or would it be okay to just watch season 3 and then go back?

Every episode is a standalone story so I don't see any problem watching season 3 first.

Watch S3E1 last night, it was good but a) I've seen community and b) it felt too simple for a full episode. I was waiting for a black mirror style twist or escalation which didn't happen - it was clear where the story was going early on and then you just watched it go there.

I appreciated the final scene though, I liked what they were going for.

Watching series 2 myself. Be Right Back was so tragic.

San Junipero is the first so far to have failed to grab me completely. I get it. But it was boring.

I'd say San Junipero is my favourite, having watched all but the last episode. The ending sequence is magnificent.

3x01 was my personal idea of hell. :dread:

3x02 felt like a waste of time. The episode would have been more powerful if it had ended with the penultimate ending with the guy going back home and discovering his mother had gotten early on-set Alzheimers in the year he'd been away. Hideo Kojima just going "Oh we've killed another one" didn't work for me.

3x03 was bleak as hell and really benefited from the lack of magic future technology. It was basically White Bear again though.

Started watching this week from episode 1 season 1. It's very good but feels a bit preachy, like Brooker could really end each episode Arrested Development style saying "that's what happens when you get obsessed with celebrity" etc.

That's nothing, just wait until the databases for the Snoopers Charter get hacked.

It did leave me feeling quite cold, similar to the Virtual Reality game episode where he doesn't know who he is anymore.

Psychological torture :dread:
