1st episode

A twisted parable for the Twitter age, Black Mirror taps into the collective unease about our modern world.

The first episode is a political thriller in which fictional Prime Minister Michael Callow faces a huge and shocking dilemma when Princess Susannah, a much-loved member of the Royal Family, is kidnapped.

Saw it when it first aired, loved it. Second one especially.

Hopefully more will be on the way at some stage.

Edit: Yay

Glad this has a second series, enjoyed aspects of the first and the dinner party episode was superb.

Aye it's excellent like, Charlie Brooker just doesn't miss a beat.  Similar to Chris Morris, I'll watch anything he's involved in.

First one was gash IMO, other two were very good. :thup:

Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.

Watching it now.

Never saw the first series, worth skipping the first episode then?

They're all stand-alone episodes so it doesn't really matter.

Sorry, I meant the first episode of the first series.  After reading that it wasn't as good as the other 2 episodes.

It was a bit more comedic than the rest, thought it was decent though.

Well that was pretty strange, glad I watched though. Makes a change from sitting here raging at FIFA at least.

Was a bit crap really. Everything Charlie Brooker does has the feel of being written by some angsty sixth former.

I really liked it, bit formulaic but fairly unsettling, pretty clever and as usual very well made.

Feels like a modern Tales of the Unexpected.  No bad thing.

I liked it. It's one of those, I don't think you watch it and think "wow what a watch that was, f***ing spectacular", but it was really engaging IMO. Can see why people would think it's a bit s*** and boring, equally.
