"...At the moment, I don't know what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart, so I'm not working away on one of those..."

But let me troll society at large with a really provocative ad and label it s6.

Riiiiiighht.

Eh. The quote is from the creator and the ad is from marketing. Who knows if he was involved. Regardless, the ad is amazing.

I bet that there was going to be an episode of, "wot if corona virus but like it was electronic and robots, maybe VR somehow?" but they canceled it when the 5G lunacy took off.

San Junipero is my go to piece of media I watch when life get's too overwhelming. It didn't get the best reviews but I really enjoyed Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too for being a Disney Channel movie is made by Black Mirror (or vice versa) but I really don't think of Nose Dive as a feel good episode.

Apropos of nothing here's my favorite Charlie Brooker moment:

/For those unaware Mr. Brooker is the creator and show-runner of Black Mirror. He also wrote the pig fuc*er episode from series 1, which was a brilliant bit of TV and made for some very awkward office conversations the day after it aired.

Watched ep1 of Years and Years. Really blurs the line between black mirror episode and real life. Scared to watch a second episode.

Clint Mansell's score for that episode is wonderful.

Heh. I was just texting my buddy that San Junipero is my favorite episode. It isn't farked up but it makes me happy, sad, nostalgic, and just morose enough...

Most of the series is the opposite of feel good.

Thanks. Hoping it can keep up the intensity... Not that we're lacking for intensity in the real world.

Not as disconcerting as that picture of Charlie Brooker. God, what a creepy ugly fark.

I feel like going against Trump at this point would probably work to their re-election benefit.

I really enjoyed that one, but wasn't sure if the ending was happy or sad. The AIs are disposable, but their sacrifice leads to a connection in the 'real' world.

My favorite is probably Hated in the Nation. It blends an enjoyable buddy-cop narrative with just the right amount of the Black Mirror universe.

Probably my second favorite. Two of the only handful of happy endings.

I also liked white bear and white Christmas, which are decidedly not happy.

I learned how to play "Anyone Who Knows What Love Is" (the song that appeared in so many episodes) on guitar. I was playing it, and Mrs. PCoC walked through the room and just said, "No. Creepy."

It needed to be a bit more "happier" being the episode after Shut Up and Dance..

I thought that he'd already done the current series.

The episode about the robot dogs that hunt and kill people is creepy to me because they remind me those dog robots that are being made/tested right now. I think Boston Dynamics makes them.

I hope season 6 is better than season 5, they were terrible.

Except for season 5.

The Boston Dynamics robots were the direct inspiration for that episode.

My wife doesn't like the reveal in that story. She says it doesn't make sense, I disagree with her.

We both agree the black and white cinematography works really well.
