Think the guy in 4
Spoiler
[close]

What's the protocol with spoilers on a Netflix show btw? Obviously too early to be plastering them about, do we usually just wait a few weeks then it's open season or what?

Best to start with ep 2. First one was total s*** imo.

too late :lol:

it was f***ing mental that like
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

Can't recommend enough inside no 9 btw if you like this kind of thing. Some misses but it's like a lighter more comedic 30 minute version of this.

Anthology shows with darkness, humour and twists. Isn't that obvious? What a strange question.

'The Last Breath' I think that was it's name was simply brilliant.

I'm a big fan of both and have never thought they were very similar whatsoever tbh.

First couple of episodes were okay, but kind of felt like it was running through the motions, felt a bit safe.  3 and 4 were both brilliant though, two of the best episodes of the show so far.

 :thup: Pretty much my thoughts, 4 was class, expertly put together and liked how it played with the cheese factor for a laugh. 3 was probably my favourite and I love Black Mirror when it has that bit of black comedy. For this type of TV it always helps I think. 1 was just pretty s**** imo, 2 looking back not great at all either. Looking forward to the next two.

Loved 3 & 4. Beauty of this is you don't know what each episode holds. Each one is unique. Hope he makes another 50 more

They didn't really have a complete narrative to go with the premise in episode 2.  Definite lack of closure by the end.

Episode 1 was a rip of a Community episode.

Onto episode 3 now. You guys better be right!

I'm pretty sure episode 1 was a rip of a previous Black Mirror episode actually. Didn't they do that whole thing before? Mad that it was written by Rashida Jones as well.

Episode 3? You might think different at the end.

Yeah, but that's with hindsight - whatever it is, I'm only halfway through.   Some c*** starts emailing me threats and has hacked my web cam, I'm calling the police.

Not impressed by the first four episodes. Slightly bored by them if I'm honest. Can't stop now though.

Disappointed because the first 2 series shone brightly.

Maybe I expected too much.

Thought episode 5 was really good too.

Seems very America-centric so far.  Only two episodes set in Britain so far, and one of those had an American lead.  Was this something Netflix insisted on to try and appeal to a wider market?  As good as it's been, I can't help but feel it's losing its identity a little bit.
