They are interesting episodes, but ultimately disappointing.

Is this show really good? I don't wanna watch pretentious stuff and have to pretend it's great. No offense but last person who recommended this show to me is a hipster clown.

I was really hoping they wouldn't. This show is the perfect evolution of the Twilight Zone.

An American version is unnecessary as we can all just watch the original.

I finished this a few weeks ago and thought it was really good. It's some dark shit though. I think the ending could go either way depending on weather or not they make a second season. It's kind of a nice self contained little ten episodes as it is.

I guess it doesn't REALLY matter, but was that place all there was? Or was there a normal outside world, and those people, even the judges, were all kept brainwashed inside with no clue?

I feel like that was it.. but then where would they have come from. Not from birth really.. but they were trapped there. There was no escaping it seems.. that's what I would have loved to see.. but then it goes the length of a movie I guess.

There wasn't a "place," there is just a prevelence of smartscreens having entirely taken over the concept of walls.

Thumbs down Re: Black Mirror

Watched the first episode

All about bestiality

Why do white people love bestiality so much?

Get where? The smartscreen walls are everywhere in that world, not just in the main characters workspace/bedroom

I havent watchd any further, but someone on imdb said that all the eps are in the same world, which I doubt, but Im just saying, they left alot to mystery here...

were they born in such a thing? How/when do people have sex then? Or is he not a prisoner? etc etc

this is only sidely important.. the message is clear.

No, the eps aren't in the same world. Most are set in the not-too-distant (20-30 years) in the future and take place in vastly different worlds.


There isn't a "thing" or a "place" in ep2-15 Million Merits, that is just the architecture of the time. No one is a prisoner in that ep anymore than we are today

That episode hit me particularly hard because I have a friend who makes his money off twitter accounts. At first it starts from a perspective of enjoyment but then you see the money and you can't quit. It was an amazing dramatization of the motivation a person goes through with that type of process.
