All six episodes of Black Mirror S3 now up on Netflix

Postby fire and fueryIre » 21 Oct 2016, 08:03

Always found BM to be somewhat of a curate's egg of a TV show, tbh. That said, when its good, it's very, very good indeed so will probably bite the bullet and keep my Netflix subscription going for (yet!) another month.

I thought it was a terrific season, although the last episode with the bees got a bit far-fetched and the bad CGI was distracting.

San Junipero was utterly brilliant. Not only the best episode of the season, or the best of the entire show, but one of the best pieces of television I've ever seen. Wonderful.

I was put off by the Banksy-does-Twilight-Zone feel of the first season. I might give it another go.

I've not heard about that one and while I'm normally not drawn to sci fi a lot, I love a good story regardless of genre so I watched the S1E1 and then S1E2. Both were well done. The first one regarding the pig and the PM was a little weird but again well done and what a story. Gee, I wonder where they got that idea? :)

I think I've found a new show to watch. Thanks!

Good to hear you like it!

Bizarrely, Black Mirror's PM and the pig story pre-dated the Cameron and the porker allegations by about a year...

While it's more Pan Book of Horror stories than straightforward science fiction, think you'd probably also like Inside No 9 from the League of Gentlemen's Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, both of the first two series - a third is due to start on BBC soon - of which are on Netflix

The show about the concerns over ratings on social media was crazy. Woah.

Cheers! Great to hear from you again. ;)

This episode was lovely and was a nice change of pace from all the gloom of the other Black Mirror episodes. I love the 80s too so that's an added bonus.

I've seen this show trailed and various ads for it, but I have absolutely no idea what it is or what it's about.

I've just watched the Seasons 1 and 2 and the X-mas special from Channel 4. It's great TV, mostly!

I get Netflix on my cable TV network starting today, so I'll watch the new season eventually (I'll have to sign up first)

Coincidentally I've recently watched Seasons 1 &2 and the Xmas special too. I found the White Bear episode particularly unnerving.

The best episode so far (I've watched the first four). The San Junipero one was a let down considering the or a used it seemed to be receiving. It was pretty simplistic. I've been a bit disappointed, really. I rate Brooker usually.

Someone recommended "Black Mirror" on a Twilight Zone group I'm in on Facebook. I was going to start a thread on it to ask for opinions, but I see there's already a thread here!
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Just watched the last one. The best by a million miles. Proper sci-fi.
