Anyone going to tune into this show?  Apparently it's been on a couple of seasons, but this is the first one one Netflix. It looks pretty intriguing!

They keep sending me notices about season three, so they apparently really want me to watch it. But the trailer doesn't really appeal to me.

I heard about it on NPR the other day.  I like the sound of it.

season 1 and 2 were on netflix.  i really liked all the episodes except the first one, which was a little too much.  watch and see ;) 

seasons 1 and 2 were both very short.

Is it structured in such a way that one could dive into season 3 without having seen 1 & 2?

Yep, each show is its own story. Season 3 has 6 shows.

I started at the beginning of season one. Holy hell, that intense. Why did no one not watch?

Black Mirror is great. I'm totally looking forward to season 3 and being pre-disappointed in the future of our society.

Well, I got a kick out of season 1, episode 2, so it's off to a good start.  For those who've started season 3, have you noticed a difference now that it's in Netflix's hands?

 

Also, who agrees with this guy?  http://www.slate.com...ack_mirror.html

I read now that it's on Netflix there's more American accents...

 

But again, I have only watched the first episode.

Starting with S03E01, the concept is horrifying and already true in today's society, to some degree. But the production on this one was just okay. Episode 2, had a pretty weak concept. The main character was annoying and the actor was crap.

Are the original black mirror creators who were responsible for the first two seasons involved with this third season?

I skipped EP2, and started EP3, but had to stop because I had to leave, but it started off pretty slow.  I need to start it up again.  Glad to hear it gets batter after 3!

I thought Ep 2 was ok.  still better than most tv.

 

this series reminds me of the twilight zone.

^^ That's very much what it seems to be like!  Twilight Zone for the digital age. 

 

I'm five episodes through season 1.  It's definitely pulled me in more than I expected.

Just now watching this show.  I really like it!  Some episodes don't interest me as much as others, but it's all high quality stuff.
