That's neat. I cant wait to have the twist social commentary somehow about the results of the show, like at the end of a Telltale game when you see how many people did what choice.

Black Mirror (modern take on Twilight Zone)

Postby Tyler » Thu Oct 25, 2018 9:53 pm

Danny's post in the other thread today inspired me to get back to this. I have the Christmas special to watch and all of season 3 (first Netflix season).

s03e01 - Nosedive - aka the Bryce Dallas Howard episode
I really liked this episode. It wasn't super doom and gloom like some of the episodes, but it was also scary because something like this could happen almost over night. Think if Facebook introduced a rating system for users, it would drive people crazy.

The episode was obviously more about just social media ranking. The ranking was a lot to do with class and social status.

I want to go watch the Community episode that did this same thing, but made it way weirder.

S03e02 - Playtest
Wyatt Russell (Kurt Russell's son) is good in this episode, but I thought overall it was a weak episode because of the ending.

What is the social commentary of this episode? Call your mom and be nice to her? The 0.4 second inception reveal was lame I thought, but there was some good stuff in the haunted house. Like his biggest fear was losing his memory like his dad.


Dan Trachenburg (sp) directed this I saw. Love that dude from a podcast 8 years ago and 10 Cloverfield Lane.

S03e03 - shut up and dance
This episode reminded me a lot of the movie Dare with Young Franco and Emma Roberts. I was frustrated throughout the episode until the last 10 seconds. Then...wow
