Yeah this was a hard season to watch.

Found myself watching each episode in instalments just so I could appreciate them more without getting bored.

I really didn’t like the crocodile episode. Had no sympathy for her reasons and overall just wanted her to get caught.

Were we supposed to sympathize with her? I figured we were watching the villain of the story.

Black Museum seems like a bad parody of some of Black Mirror’s best episodes, particularly the Jon Hamm Christmas special. The message of Black Mirror, if i had to sum it up, is that the technology we’ve come to love and depend on can be twisted to ruin our lives and take our humanity. That doesn’t work if the episode highlights technology that only an idiot would agree to use.

Said the same thing. Thought this season felt like a rehash of earlier seasons but not done as well

I watched the USS Callister episode with Fat Damon and Your Mother.  I really liked it, but the ending was a bit too Matrixy.  In this world, people upload onto online games, but I figured if there was some major issues, the game would shut off and bring them back.  There would have to be some failsafes.  Considering Your Mother got all the DNA evidence, I just figured the guy would be forced out of his game, then have a knock on the door from the police a little bit later.

LOL

Poor dude!

I'm imagining he spent all his life aspiring to be an actor.

Then finally the moment he makes it big, he gets labelled Fat Damon!

Seeing Fat Damon with his shirt off was the most frightening thing about season 4.

Funny thing is he actually played a younger Matt Damon in a movie

Though he still knocked up Kirsten Dunst

That one was good, and the online dating one was solid, too. But I do feel like there's a fair amount of overlap in general with some of the show's themes and ideas between seasons. It's always been a hit and miss show for me, though, which I guess makes sense given its format.

Anyone watching its Amazon rival, Electric Dreams?
