Anyone going to watch this tomorrow? The premise fascinates me and actually can't be that unachievable? The picture in this link scares me. www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/2013/feb/08/black-mirror-charlie-brooker-survival-guide

For anyone who doesn't want to read the link, a woman loses her partner in an accident. She is offered a service which enables her to talk to him. This is made by data he has made online.

I saw the last ones and am going to watch it, haven't looked at link.

Do you need to have watched Series 1?

MarshaBrady Sun 10-Feb-13 16:19:38

I doubt it.

I lived the pig shagging one, very clever. Wonder what Dave cunterom would do

Series one was a series of one offs so you don't need to have watched it. The pig one still freaks me out.

I'll be watching - I really liked series 1 - why did it get slated on here?

MarshaBrady Mon 11-Feb-13 08:55:52

Really stuck in my mind. Didn't like the third one as much with the repeat video. But the pig and the bike one <shudder>.

MarshaBrady Mon 11-Feb-13 08:56:49

It got slated on here as some thought they were too sick to watch.

It looks really fascinating, I wasn't sure as I hadn't see the first series but that doesn't appear to be a problem. So hopefully I'm in (but probably on catch up!)

Haven't watched the first series but am definitely going to be watching this series! Love Charlie Brooker & looks interesting, even if it turns out not to be my cuppa smile

I watched the pig one on 4OD this afternoon. I really wish I hadn't. I still feel sick.

Oodsigma Mon 11-Feb-13 17:36:10

msnobody it still haunts me a year on!

Series one was brilliant- I can't wait for tonight.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 11-Feb-13 17:43:30

Ood I can see why. It was really strange but I couldn't stop watching it. Clever writing.

I watched the bike one too, that wasn't bad. But the video one I couldn't get into at all.

Oodsigma Mon 11-Feb-13 19:28:08

Was very clever,all of them actually made you stop & discuss them

thaliablogs Mon 11-Feb-13 20:25:47

I didn't actually ENJOY any of them but the bike one keeps coming back to me. I thought the pig one was just shock value, not nearly as interesting a concept.

Footface Mon 11-Feb-13 20:49:11

Didn't see the bike one, is it scary?

MsNobodyAgain Mon 11-Feb-13 21:09:06

Not scary. Thought provoking.

I liked the last series. Didn't someone write a book recently with the same premise as this next episode though? Goodbye For Now, or something?
