Striking Vipers.
The idea is very similar to San Junipero, where two 'straight' women fall in love with each others avatar's in a virtual enviro, is it not?
Brooker should know that. A bit disappointed.

f*** knows what Stan means 90% of the time.

I agree on Striking Vipers, just thought it was an old idea. Smithereens is much better.

Striking Vipers had at entirely different themes to San Juniper, though. Smithereens was nowhere near as layered as the vast majority of episodes, SV included.

I enjoyed all three episodes, especially striking vipers, while this season wasn't mind f***ing it was still entertaining.

Watched the first 2 episodes of series 5 past couple of nights. First 2 episodes of black mirror ive ever seen. SV was good. Smithereen was excellent, though. As someone who works in that online content, attention industry, really poignant. We're no where near that level, but, you know...  Bang on as well, btw.
Should probably start series 1 at some point.

I agree. Saw Smithereens last night. Very good.

He'll be gutted that nobody remembers him, after such a heroic death.

Finally got round to watching this from the start. Some episodes better than others but on the whole it's quite clever.

First episode(Striking Vipers) was super weird. Didn't like it. Just felt long and uncomfortable to watch.

Second episode was okay. Long build up to that and then it was like "That's what happened?" Jeez, dude. That's your fault.

John talks with Charlie Brooker (creator, writer, and executive producer of Black Mirror) about his groundbreaking series and the opportunities and challenges of writing an anthology.

We also touch on the nature of reality, the difficulty of reflecting culture while you influence it, and experimental storytelling.
Thier is not a word. "Their" is the correct spelling.
