  1. Guinea pig! :nyah: I don't know how humans look to guinea pigs, but guinea pigs look nothing like hamsters to humans. In fact, I was in South America and they served up a guinea pig to me; it's called Cuy over there, and I couldn't eat it because it looked like the animal, only cooked. I asked them to chop it up and serve it to me without the head and legs on it. It was good. I ate all of his memories and knew who the killer was.

    It's not that I have an innate preference for dark endings (after all I loved San Junipero and liked Hang the DJ), it's just that the nature of the show is to be macabre and twisted and since the episode wasn't an outlier like San Junipero, then I feel the alternate ending would have worked better.

    This show unfortunately went from "British" to "American" (when Netflix acquired it). Exploits some local paranoias, more "convenient". Amen.
  5. Not sure what "local paranoias" you are referring too here. Can you elaborate?
  6. Sounds like a good name for a band: Local Paranoia
  7. Think about this the next time you consume meat. Even if the piece of meat looks different it’s still part of an animal’s corpse.

  8. Yeah, I know. Those unidentifiable shiznits are tasty corpse pieces. In schnitzel, even. :D
  9. So, I saw Ep. 4, Hang the DJ tonight. I thought it was much closer to the look, feel, and type of storytelling the first three seasons brought us. I really enjoyed it.

    Two more to go.

    Good season. Black Museum was my favorite. I saw that Kenny from Shut Up and Dance stars in a new Netflix series The End of the F***ing World. Gonna check it

  11. The last two episodes were outstanding, especially "Metalhead." Rod Serling would have geeked out on "Metalhead."

    Watched three so far, not in order.

    USS callister - excellent. Not sure that the copies would have all the memories and personally of the originals, but prepared to let that slide.

    Metalhead - Texas Chainsaw meets Terminator. Great, except for the stupid ending.

    Crocodile - Bladerunner voight kampff test meets the hitman scene from Mulholland Dr. Stupid memory idea. Stupid and boring. Guesed the shock end quite early, and fast forwarded through a couple of scenes towards the end: the visit to the woman's husband/ the kids concert.

    Started watching the Jodi Foster one, but got very bored and gave up.

    I feel like this season was a little subpar compared to the excellent season three. Liked, but didn't love:
    • USS Callister
    • Metalhead
    • Black Museum
    Felt ambivalent about, but didn't hate:
    • Arkangel
    • Crocodile
    • Hang the DJ

    I've just one more episode to watch of the entire series.....I don't know who this
    `Charlie Brooker' is, but I think he is a genius. Or at the very least, a gifted writer.

    Binge watched this over the last few days. Enjoyed all the episodes. Metalhead was intense.

    Late to this thread, but I finished most of the season a while ago, just need to get to Black Museum (too many things get in the way)

    Loved the first episode and is one of the best of the series period (though probably not in my top 5)

    I really liked the second episode, didn't love it. Great acting here though.

    Crocodile is the best shot episode I think I've seen from this series. Totally gripping till the end. The whole memory thing is obviously an instance where you benefit from a little suspense of disbelief.

    Hang the DJ is quite possibly my least favorite black mirror episode. Still pretty good though. Kind of similar to San Junipero

    Metalhead was fantastic. Loved it. The motive is a little silly but that's ok. Not every episode needs to be thoroughly thought-provoking & have layers of meaning to analyze.

    Probably my least favorite season so far. What a great show

    I finally watched the 2nd episode (I skipped around) and I really loved "Archangel." It was a really good cautionary sci-fi story. Perfect for the times. Very moving and sad. Looking back, one of the best episodes of this season.
