    The only really weak episodes of season 4 are the one with the Mother watching her daughter and the robot dogs one.
    I see the last episode is getting a bit of stick off a couple of folk. I loved it.

    I was watching it the whole time expecting the mad * who loved pain to be in the back and the whole point of getting the girl in would be to put the mad hat on her.

    Gave this another chance after the very first episode (thought it was *)

    Fired on episode 1 and 2 season 4 and thought it was brilliant.

    Finished season 4 was pretty good, watching season 3 now which id say is much better.

    Just finished it.

    Pretty cool and it's very well done. Goes off the rails, as you'd expect with Black Mirror!

    :50: I'd love to start it just now but I want to give it my full attention. Seen a few posts on Reddit saying there is 5 hours worth of story if you go through each option.

    Aye, depending on choices you make it can take you back to go a different path. Took me about an hour and a half. Very weird but I'm sure you'll enjoy it.:50:

    Didn't like how the you couldn't follow a certain "path" through fully. Eventually it just takes you back to where it wants you to be again. Lots of potential in this set up and can see this format becoming more common going forward.

    As much as I loved this episode I really hope the whole choosing which path to take doesn’t become a norm. It’s better as a one off. Imagine going to the movies in the future and you and the audience chooses which path to take, it’ll be annoying as * :giggle1:

    That's the thing - this format would only work at home for that reason but I get your point.

    I enjoyed it but got lost a bit when it was taking me back to certain points

    I’ll definitely give it another go and choose the other options to see what difference it makes.

    Not sure if I like it much. I like the concept and the fact it’s self aware, but even the story itself isn’t great.

    Do not watch Bagsnatcher if you have torrented it. Turns it into a right boring load of pish.

    Definitely a one off. Black Mirror don’t tend to revisit their concepts, this episode just took the “choose your own path” concept and completely Black Mirrored it. I’m sure the people who have seen it know what I mean, without spoiling it for those who haven’t. There’s a part where you choose a “sign” and it takes a strange turn.

    Sorry I meant because of the popularity of it, that it might come into “mainstream” tv or other Netflix/amazon programmes or film. And I really hope that doesn’t happen
