    Black Mirror

    Anyone got a line on how to watch this if I don't have DirectTV? It sounds kind of amazing and its killing me that I cant watch it.

    It's on Netflix. I watched the whole season at a friend's place (I don't know anything about Netflix). I wouldn't call it amazing but some of them are pretty interesting. The tops for me we're Recall Chip, Synthetic Husband and Punishment Park. I don't remember the actual episode names.

    Time to resurrect this thread. Who's been watching this show? I'm a bit late to the party, but have recently watched the first 2 seasons and just started the 3rd. Nosedive was a great episode. Also loved Jon Hamm in White Christmas.

    ^ yeah that jon hamm one was good. I'm mixed on the show overall, some of it feels pretty telegraphed / predictable and it is VERY preachy (although I think they're right) about the badness of social media, which wears on me at times...

    my favorite episode is probably still episode 1. I also really liked "men against fire"

    Awesome show. The first two episodes of season 4
    didn’t have the normal twist that I like about the show, but the rest of the season is great. Ark angel is a standout episode.

    Some of the episodes lack believability. Really, these people got killed trying to get a teddy bear?

    I'm curious what those 3 actually are called episode wise. I watched White Christmas and Nosedive, both were great. Got halfway through Men Against Fire, gonna finish it tonight.
    What's next ?

    Just finished season 4. First and last episodes were probably my favorite, the first one will definitely be a classic.

    Also, Vote for Waldo provides staggering insight into Trump, and those who voted for Trump.

    So ..... you're all saying you have to pick and choose??? Fuck that shit. I watched the first two episodes (season 1): first one was excellent, fell asleep 10 minutes into the second ....... waaaaaay too variable.

    Yeah, I know, Twilight Zone had it's ups and downs, but that was then, this is ......

    Finally got up to the USS Callister episode. Man, that was fun!

    Makes me wonder, though! To get into the Infinity system, they had to use the EXACT same little neural transmitter thingies the people were using in the San Junipero episode (great episode btw). In the Callister episode, the "clones" on the ship distinctly said that they were copies of their counterparts "out there." I have a feeling that the end of San Junipero isn't quite as cheery as we were led to believe. In fact, I'd be willing to be the writers wanted us to think a little more deeply on that one. Would love to see a sequel on that one!

    that little brain chip works for a bunch of episodes. I'm halfway through Croc and it's slow but still very twisted.

    jesus h christ people. you take this stuff way too serious. No none of this shit "could" happen neither could anything on the twilight zone. Just take the stories with a grain of salt and enjoy how well done they are, which is very excellent as far as I'm concerned. the point I beleive is to make you think.

    Just watched Hang the DJ last night. What a fantastic episode! I love the massive emotional swings Black Mirror puts us through. I needed that episode after watching Crocodile. Yeesh.

    3 episodes they are calling Season 5 released.

    Honestly, I’m massively disappointed. There is nothing “Black mirror” about them. They could be on NBC in a Tuesday night.

    I think episode 3 from this season was basically the rehashed plot of Toy Story.
