Bees who have watched the series, which episode was your favorite/least favorite?
My favorite is Bandersnatch because as a programmer I can relate to the frustration of coding late at night and having things not work.
My least favorite so far is Play Test because it gave me nightmares and it seems like nobody would really want to make a horror game that intense

I loved Nosedive because it takes something that already exists in our world to the next level, creating this hell on earth. It’s such a stark reflection of the current social climate it’s stayed with me ever since I watched it.
Honestly, all of them disturbed me, but this one got me. Because there are patterns of behaviour which already exist in our society with our focus on social media and social validation. Still scares the shit out of me. Which is ironic, because it’s so bright and happy.
Least favourite: Probably Crocodile because I don’t believe it breached any real barrier or provided any meaningful social commentary. It was just a meh episode.

I haven’t seen the whole series, but there were a few episodes that I liked that actually weren’t disturbing at all. Maybe something is wrong with me, but I thought they were a little sweet. Hang The DJ was one that kept me waiting for the other shoe to drop, but then it kind of never did. And San Junipero was actually so beautiful it made me cry.
The pig fucking episode, however, was the product of a mind that has some serious goddamn pathology going on in there. Jesus Roller-Skating Christ.

Oh I do love Black Mirror! My favourite is Hated in the Nation. I don’t know why, maybe I’m partial to crime investigation stories or very awful endings…. I’ve watched most episodes multiple times and that’s the one I keep coming back to… but this is quite a forgettable ep for many people somehow (it’s the one with artificial BEES and hashtags 🙂 ). My other top3 are Fifteen Million Merits and USS Callister.
Least favourite is the only one that I still haven’t managed to finish – the black & white one, Metalhead. I just can’t get into it.

Love love love black mirror. Don’t even know the episode name but the one with all the Easter eggs where they go through the museum of horrors!!

Love BlackMirror! Our fav episodes would be USS Callister, Black Museum and White Christmas. Least favourite would be Crocodile and Metalhead…and also the latest 3 episodes on Netflix I feel like they lost their touch and just weren’t as good as earlier episodes. Bandersnatch was really fun though!

I agree re: Bandersnatch. We played it while drinking a bottle of wine on a Friday night – it was SO much fun. Replayability is low I reckon though, which is a bit disappointing

San Junipero is probably my favorite although I also liked the episode where people rated their interactions with each other to get higher up in social circles
Least favorite is probably the first episode.

Most favorite – nosedive, way too on the nose! But least favorite would be the robot hunting people ones, felt kind of missing a plot
