Its a great show, I don't think the idea's always work but at least its TV with ideas behind it. I think Charlie Brooker is a great writer and when this is good is great.

They've done a Christmas episode with Jon Hamm, and the trailers look appropriately eerie. Plus, Jon Hamm.

[quote=gabrielle22;5305755]So I know I'm a bit behind, but has anyone else watched this show?

The first one especially.[/QUOte

Yes, a few years ago..I wait eargerly for each new bunch.

First season was stellar, but all have been good.

I liked Jon Hamm, the bees, and the online hate game.

Sci fi with intellectual look at a possible future. Creepy good!

I have never heard of this show until reading this thread. Of course, without my daughter I would not have heard about various Youtube channels, AHS, NCIS, or Hamilton the musical (only the latter seems worthwhile to me btw). But, if given a chance I will check this show out.


I put the first episode on today.... I had to stop watching about half way through, I was disturbed about the sex with a pig thing. Maybe I’ll try again with a later episode.

I just received an update that a UPS delivery is 8 stops away. Then 5 stops. Then when I clicked on the update it shows a dot signifying the drivers truck driving to our neighborhood. When I said 'freaky!'.. my daughter said, 'that's some Black Mirror shit'.

No - I've only seen 3...the first 2 of season 1 (pig fucking and Brave New World themed one), and then for some reason I saw a more recent one with the guy who looks like Matt Damon who traps his co-workers in the simulation game.

I'm entertained enough to keep watching, but not yet at the "I need to binge this shit STAT" stage.

Electric Dreams based on stories by Philip k Dick is on Netflix and is similar scifi anthology series. A little more trippy than Black Mirror

I think it's Prime, not Netflix?

I usually like his writing better than the adaptions. Electric Dreams I've liked better than anything. Even though the Blade Runner movies were visually stunning, I liked his short story better. And, a friend of mine tried to get me to watch The Man in the High Castle. Which is also we'll produced, but I can't get into it. So of his writing adapted to visual media, I like the Electric Dreams most.

Ugh. My bad. Yes, Prime.

His short stories are definitely better.

I can't get into High Castle either. It just isnt catching me.

I havenít seen TMintheHC but was intrigued because I enjoyed the story. Philip k Dick was certainly thought provoking. And I did enjoy the original Blade Runner movie before reading the story. Although adaptations seem to lose something compared to the source material I will try to keep an open mind relative to the two seriesí.


Btw I appreciate the heads up on such tv opportunities.

Long books work well for sci-fi, but it also lends really well to short stories. And short story sci-fi works great for a well curated anthology. With Black Mirror, I'd suggest watching backwards. Start with the latest season, and work back if you like it. The episode you started with made sense it put you off.
