Black Mirror Series 5

Recommended Posts

I got like halfway through Bandersnatch and never got around to finishing it. Maybe this weekend. It wasn't terrible, but it certainly wasn't great and didn't pull me into the storyline. It was also annoying that certain decisions had no impact on the storyline, and forced you to redo them again - it felt patronizing (I get the meta of it being that you have no choice, but that's just a dumb cop out to me). I'm hoping the ending is good enough to justify the storyline, otherwise this was a really mediocre experience.

I'm not too concerned about the rest of the season, though. Last season was good, and they got a bunch of different directors involved so there was good variety. Hopefully they do the same for this season.

My thoughts exactly.  With how much the creator kept bitching about how underappreciated and time consuming a choose your own is, I feel like they had to cop out.  I hated getting forced back 20 minutes ago saying basically my choices didn't work.
