Finished Black Mirror

Spoiler: show
Episode 4 was good, felt like another version of San Junipero which is a good thing. I picked the twist fairly early but it didn't take away from the ep. One of the better ones of the season.
Episode 5: Default was right. Worst ep of BM ever. Nothing about it felt like BM and it offered absolutely nothing.
Episode 6: Yeah, like you said link, they default wanted to make a White Christmas V2. Obviously it wasn't as good but it was still an enjoyable episode and one of the better ones this season. Loved the links to past eps and how all the techs came together in the episode too.

Overall I would say this was probably the most uneven season. Eps 3 and 5 are some of the worst BM has ever had and ep2 was decent but nothing amazing, so when watching in order it just felt very inconsistent. Still, even an average BM is better than nearly anything else.

Seen the first 3 so far.

Ep1 is amazing. Classic BM.
Ep2 is good
Ep3 was average

I thought the new season of Black Mirror was alright, all told. Nothing particularly standout.

Re: eps 1-3
Spoiler: show

Ep 1 - I think the twist in point of view change was a nice touch. The themes are kind of previously been touched on in "White Christmas" in terms of torturing virtual copies of people.
Ep 2 - I think that the idea of being over-protective of children when raising them is definitely an interesting theme. If anything, it's not the technology that's scary here, it's the dysfunctional parental relationship that breaks things apart.
Ep 3 - I just think this is a dark, psychological torture episode. I don't really feel like it says anything about technology. Only how far someone might go to cover up their past. Again, a bit of a rehash of "Shut Up and Dance", really.


Re: eps 4-6
Spoiler: show

Ep 4 - I think this was an interesting take on the nature of love and relationships
Ep 5 - I didn't feel like anything from this episode was fresh. It's an artsy episode which doesn't really say anything about human nature or technology. We've seen post-apocalyptic futures where robots have wiped out humans, nothing interesting to see really.
Ep 6 - I like how this episode uses the same sort of mini-anthology format that "White Christmas" does to setup the story. It feels like a summation of the series of all the elements & homage to a few previous episodes.


Favourite episodes?
Mine are probably still White Christmas, & Hated in the Nation.

It feels very Disney/Marvel influenced.

Spoiler: show
Hit the nail on the head right there. The humor felt very 'Avengers-like', too try-hard. A 'your mom' joke? Really?

Finished Punisher.

Really really picks up in the final third and delivers big time. Brutal AF.
