Black Mirror

Post by Andvari300 » Thu Feb 15, 2018 5:44 pm

Anybody check this show out on Netflix? It's an anthology and shows how technology has affected each story, generally most have bad endings but it is really interesting and makes you wonder what the future holds for us in our current obsession with technology.

Black Mirror is great! I watched for the first time a few years ago. Some episodes I can never watch again, they're just so.. uncomfortable. But San Junipero is my favorite, my god, I love it so much...

Have yet to see s4 though!
The good news is it really doesn't matter
The other good news is an apple Jolly Rancher
And it won't heal wounds, but it will heal moods
And it's sweet and it's sour and it's green and it rules.
Can't do much so the cut won't sting
But you can make a couple taste buds go z-z-z-zing!

Is that the one with the likes? I enjoyed that too. Watching season 4 now. My favorite is from season one the dude who ends up catching his wife having an affair and the kid really wasn't his. Was sad but the technology was pretty badass. I would totally have that installed in me.

Edit: NVM now I know yeah I did like that one.

I love Black Mirror. My favorite episode from season 4 was probably Hang the DJ. A rare episode with a good ending.

Still have to watch that. Seen the one with the space ship that was interesting. Just finished the one with the short blonde haired woman killing everyone to basically save herself. I cringed after the baby part.

Three new episodes were added a few days ago.

Downloaded all 3 episodes when it came out, havent got the time to watch it yet. I read online that the new season is not up to par with previous season in term of story quality.

I liked the new episodes. A long wait for only 3 episodes though, damn. The Bandersnatch movie was interesting with it’s branching and rewindable narrative, something that couldn’t have been done on traditional tv services

Watched all three episodes. It's fine, but I think it already lost what makes black mirror great. It used to make you think about the implication of the technology and how it could become real and create all those problems depicted in the movie in the near future.
