BLACK MIRROR is back for Season Five!

Postby Jerky » Sat Dec 29, 2018 11:33 am

...this time with an interactive, film-length premiere episode entitled BANDERSNATCH!

Trailer (which I haven't seen and won't be watching... I wanna go in FRESH!):



Up front I admit, I'm a very big (but not unconditional) admirer of the series, so I'll be watching it myself on NETFLIX over the next few hours, and chiming in with a review ASAP. In the meantime, here are my reviews for all six episodes of Season 4, for anyone interested:

USS CALLISTER

METALHEAD

BLACK MUSEUM

If you agree (or not) with my take on these episodes, then you'll know that you can (or can't) trust my opinion when it comes to reviewing things (well... Black Mirror episodes, at least).

Cheers!

Well, I just watched BANDERSNATCH, and it was definitely an entertaining, intriguing, occasionally downright compelling experiment in the potential of interactive media... all while simultaneously serving as a comprehensive catalog of the inherent problems and limitations of the format in question.

Before I dive into writing a more complete review, I'd be very interested to know what others here thought of it.
