    Bump!

    Just watched the six episodes of this over the last week, its's an incredible show. The weakest episode was the last one but even then it was thoroughly enjoyable and well written. Still to watch the Christmas Special.

    Bit of a hidden gem this show.

    Anyone watched any episodes from the new season on Netflix? Just watched episode 4 'San Junipero' and it was fantastic. If only it was real.

    Can't stress enough how good this show is. Charlie Brooker is a genius.

    I watched the first three episodes and thought it was very good. Watched the first episode of season 2 a few days ago and wow what a piece of television. I have to admit it's a total tearjerker, you will well up, but funny at the same time. There are many layers to it, it's just brilliant. Great imagination from the writers.

    Watched the first episode of season 3 there.

    Mad how it makes you think. Putting up a status on facebook or a picture on instagram, I don't care who you are, the likes you get definitely make you feel good. But really, it means absolutely nothing.

    Loved the last scene with Dallas Howard and the other guy roasting each other. Be yourself. Don't be fake. You'll definitely be a lot happier.

    After all the positive reviews here, just watched season 1 episode 1
    (the PM * the pig)
    Sorry - just don't get the acclaim here - thought it was absolutely ridiculous.
    Can't see me watching any more, purely based on that one unless I can be convinced otherwise and that would be doubtful unless anyone shares the same opinion of at least that first one, which would have to be declared an anomaly vs the others.

    I personally think season 3 is the best. I was actually saying to a lassie in my work that the first episode might throw you off because it's a bit weird and isn't that strong. As every episode is different you can pick and choose what one to watch, my personal favourites are "shut up and dance", "san junipero","White Christmas" and "The Entire History of You". Give them a watch.

    Every episode is a different story and the characters have nothing to do with each other. Think American Horror Story but instead of a different storyline every season, it's a different one every episode. They are all basically social commentaries though.

    It's not one of the best, but if you find it "absolutely ridiculous" then the show might not be for you.
