    Attention Black Mirror

    So for the last couple of months I've been seeing ads for this star trek rip-off show, and I couldn't work out why I kept on seeing different actors in the pictures. Only just realised today that it is two different shows - the Orville, and Black Mirror.

    So I just tuned into the USS Callister episode of Black Mirror and fucking loved it. Then immediately started thinking, 'oh baby, I've got four seasons of this to catch up on'.......only to then realise that it is THE ONLY EPISODE, as the episodes are all about a different subject, sort of like the Outer Limits.

    So feeling too gutted right now to check out any of the other episodes. Should I stick with it?

    Yes - Black Mirror is awesome - watch the other series of them they were mostly brilliant.

    Black Mirror is all about different sci-fi ish episodes they are all worth a watch.

    If you want Star Trek check the new one or The Orville they are both also very good.

    The USS Callister ep of Black Mirror is great - but there are better episodes of it - San Junipero - watch that

    Black Mirror rules and you have a few other seasons to go at. can't fault it barring the prime minster/pig one. Can't comment on Star Trek stuff but tried a couple of the Orvilles and ain't my bag.

    Heard good things about Black Mirror and yeah each episode are totally separated and even directed by different people I believe?

    It's a great show. I still think about Shut up and Dance contains the best "holy fuck I didn't expect that" in TV history.

    Black Mirror - Just about to watch the latest current episode and have to say 'San Junipero' has been my favourite overall, it's an excellent show and to think I almost never watched it as I found episode 1 pretty average but each episode seemed to get better and better.

    The Orville - Loved it and can't wait for the new season to start.

    I've been a fan of Black Mirror from the beginning but hadnt seen the latest Netflix season. Last night put on ep 5 (it was the shortest and I was as tired) and found it utterly boring. Hoping this is a one off as I love the dark undertone of the rest of them.

    I think it's the weakest of the season, so don't worry, you just picked an awful point to start season 4.

    Make sure you watch the last episode of season 4 last - it contains loads of references to previous episodes.

    Looks cool - I binged the first four seasons of Black Mirror a couple of months ago and loved it. The only episode I didn't enjoy so much was the one with the criminal.
