    I still feel a bit sorry for him at the end. Aye he was a * in his wee computer simulation, but he wasn't actually hurting anyone, and what if that was the only thing that was keeping him from going over the edge in the real world considering that he was bullied to * there. Don't think he deserved to die.

    Good point, however he was an absolute * in the simulation and the people actually felt like real people themselves and he knew that. You are right though in that he didn't deserve to die. What he did to his co owners kid in order to get him to comply was horrific though.
    Brilliant TV though, can't wait to watch the rest.

    Watched seasons 1, 2 and the opener of 3 the last couple of days. Can't believe i have not sooner. All fantastic especially the prime minister and the christmas one. only one i didnt like was the x factor cycling one.

    Be right there the one were the girl clones her dead partner was worst for me in that regard.
    white Christmas i thought was that good it didn't get to me that much. the office Christmas party part was absolutely excellent. the twists in the final part made it though . i was able to guess the first one with the girl turning around but after that it was back to mind blowing tv. John Hamm aswell. perfect in that role.

    Spoilers S4E01:


    He was hurting people: a bunch of fully sentient clones. They weren't just VR, they were created from the DNA of their donors. They were as conscious as you and me.

    The one in the last season with the guy who was travelling round the world and took a job testing out video games cause he needed the money was a great episode as well, you could see * like that happening in the real world in the next 10-20 years, ending was a bit of a gut punch as well but you always kind of expect that with Black Mirror even though there have been a couple of happy endings.

    SPOILER

    They were only digital clones. They never existed as physical beings, it was a computer simulation so it wasn't the same as harming a real human."

    They were still sentient beings with thoughts and feelings. What he was doing was tantamount to torture.

    After watching USS Callister. Thought that about the protagonist change. White bear is like them aswell in that way.

    I felt the exact same when I watched episode one around 6 months ago and thought the show wasn't for me tbh.

    However, I stuck the Star Trek episode on at the weekend there and really enjoyed it. I've since watched a good few more and have enjoyed almost all of them.

    Star Trek
    The Gamer One
    Shut Up & Dance
    The iPhone one where you get rated
    The dating expiration one
    Black Museum

    I'll watch the San Junipero one soon seeing as a lot in here rate it.

    If I watched S1 Ep1 now I would probably enjoy it as I now know what the shows all about.

    When I was reading over the thread the other day I seen you guys name dropping a few of the episodes, so I kind of figured out why he was so desperate for it not to get out during the SUAD episode which kind of took away the shock factor at the end and meant I never really felt sorry for the wee * at any point.

    The gamer one is definitely my favourite one.

    I do like it overall but I do think there are some boring episodes though.

    Series 4 was awful only decent episodes were the first and last ones.

    I thought San Junipero was terrible. Boring and gay as * (both figuratively and literally). Yawn.
