Is there a thread on this? I couldn't see it.

Anyway, what do you think of the new series?

I've just finished episode 4, I'm in tears, it was so happy but so sad too!

I think the latest series is 60% good and 40% filler. The good episodes are fantastic though. Is number 4 San Junipero? That was the stand out episode for me.

Have you watched them all?

Yes, San Juniper was fantastic. The production was amazing and the acting was great too. So sad at the end though, with those little flicking lights. sad

I must be the only person who didn't care for San Junipero.

Episode 3 with Bronn was the high point for me. I like Black Mirror at its darkest.

That said, really enjoyed 1 + 2 as well. Hated episode 5 and and was disappointed with 6. Think it should have stayed as a 3-4 episode series. Expanding it to 6 didn't really work for me.

Who's ready for season four on the 29th?

Me. I'm all ready for season 4.

I really liked San Junipero. I thought it was fantastic too.

CaptainHammer Thu 28-Dec-17 17:40:38

I’m ready!

Didn’t see this thread before but I didn’t care much for San Junipero either. I thought it was ok but the way everyone raves about it I expected it to be better.

Ready and looking forward to it.

Radio Times today has an interview with Jodie Foster, who stars in one ...

LightastheBreeze Thu 28-Dec-17 18:15:40

Are these all individual as I have only just started watching season one. Could I watch seasons 3 and 4 first then go back to the early ones

TheSecondOfHerName Thu 28-Dec-17 18:31:47

LightastheBreeze they are all stand-alone episodes. You can watch them in any order.

LightastheBreeze Thu 28-Dec-17 18:37:52

Thank you, I might watch the recent ones first then I will be up to date with any threads on them

Elendon Thu 28-Dec-17 18:50:04

Jodie Foster directed it.

DenPerry Thu 28-Dec-17 19:22:31

I can't wait. I watched them all in a few days and raved about it to anyone who would listen! San jupiero made me cry. It was so lovely but so sad too.

DGRossetti Fri 29-Dec-17 11:10:35

Jodie Foster directed it.

Wish I'd read the article before posting grin.

Oh, well, double treat then !

Am currently watching USS CALLISTER and having a NERDGASM.

I'm a die hard Trekkie so this is hitting all my nerdspots.

TheSecondOfHerName Fri 29-Dec-17 15:23:51

I liked some aspects of USS Callister but a major concept on which much of the plot hangs was completely unscientific and illogical, and I found it difficult to suspend disbelief quite that far.

TheSecondOfHerName Fri 29-Dec-17 15:29:57

As Jacob Oller points out in his review in Paste, "the fewer questions asked during its runtime, the better the plot goes down".

CaptainHammer Fri 29-Dec-17 17:46:20

I’ve watched the first 3. Enjoyed USS Callister more than I thought I would from the trailer. Arkangel is the first episode I’ve managed to guess a lot of. The end of Crocodile is sad.

I want to say more but will avoid spoilers for now!

TheSecondOfHerName Fri 29-Dec-17 18:08:42

Just watched Arkangel; found it very stressful! DS1 pointed out that some of the tech interface in Arkangel was v.similar to a previous episode (The Entire History of You).

falange Fri 29-Dec-17 21:07:03

I didn't like san junipero either. Found it very dull. Have watched 3 episodes of series 4 today. Each one good. Especially number 3. Omg.

I created a spoilers thread for anyone who wants to rave about it like a mad person.

chipscheeseandcurrysauce Sat 30-Dec-17 01:48:42

Hated in the Nation and San Junipero are my favourite episodes so far... I'm on S4 now, the first episode is messed up but I feel sad for him though.

TheSecondOfHerName Sat 30-Dec-17 18:12:43

Crocodile was bloody brilliant.
