Default Top 3 Fave Black Mirror Episodes

In no particular order:

White Christmas - Still not sure whose fate in the end is worse, Matt or Joe.
San Junipero - Seen it 4 times now and it's still not getting old.
Hated in the Nation - Imagine if Julian Assange had the psyche of Ted Bundy?

Re: Nation. I'd love to see them do a part II and continue the story where it left off.

San Junipero - No explanation needed.
The Entire History of You - Just a crushing episode.
Nosedive - Hilarious.

San Junipero: #1. You know why.
White Christmas: one of the few I nearly cried at.
Be Right Back: creepy at moments but still quite good.

Honorable mention would go to Hated In The Nation.

white christmas is probably the best episode for edge of your seat entertainment, great twists and turns throughout and it always keeps you questioning what's going to happen next

san junipero is... well san junipero. we've already discovered everyone on here shares that same love for it. probably the most emotional episode of the series, not to mention i enjoy most things that explore the idea of mortality and life after death so that alone sold it for me.

3rd is tough. there's a lot of ones that really stuck with me, particularly the entire history of you, shut up and dance, and playtest. i think white bear gets it though. honestly it was just such an experience on the first viewing and lots of wondering "what the **** is happening here?" i also give it props for provoking conversation. i've talked to plenty of people who have seen the show about whether they believe the punishment is reasonable, or whether it correlates with the publics treatment of certain people because of the rise of technology and media.

all in all just a great ****ing show.

1) White Bear

2) Hated in the Nation

I thought San Junipero was a good episode but not one of my favourites.

3. Fifteen Million Merits - The most Orwellian episode of them all.

2. The Entire History of You - Dark and deeply impactful. A window into our potential future.

1. White Christmas - The scariest episode for me. Putting yourself in either of the main characters situations is devastating.

Fifteen Million Merits is pretty underrated, definitely a great episode. i think the last 3rd of it brought it down a little bit for me tho.

I loved it


Expect spoilers
Spoiler for Spoiler:
When he gave his speech with the broken glass at his neck and then they turned it into a commercial product where he was saying if you don't buy this I'll stab myself then he drinks fresh orange juice and (I think) goes back to sleep was absolutely brilliant. It rang completely truthful.
