I just watched one that has a happy ending.  I won't say which one, though!

I know which one :)

Part of me loves the idea...

Don't know how i missed this the first time it was on, but have just finished series 1 and it is darkly brilliant, worthy of all the praise heaped upon it...the very first episode in particular was fantastically audacious.

I watched the first three episodes over the weekend.

Very intriguing show.

Amazon Prime Video is trying to cash in on Black Mirror's success with a new anthology series called "Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams". I've watched 3 episodes so far. Not bad.

Great show, though I've only seen season 1.

Hang in with it. Seasons 3 and 4 are great
:ebert:

Just finished Season 2's "runner" episode with the lady on the run being phone-filmed by everyone.  Very good.
White Bear.

Blew my f***in mind.

You prefer the grim ones? No kidding! Shut up and Dance was brutal - grim is putting it lightly.  But what a great show.  Every episode sticks with me afterwards.

I watched this one yesterday while I was on the treadmill at the gym.  Brilliant!

I also like the grim ones the best.

Yeah man, that was a hard watch. I went in order, and when that came on me and my wife were all "What the f**k are we watching???!" My favorites so far are White Bear (the runner one), the one where you can review your memories like DVR, the clone one (which was creepy), and the one where the blackmailed kid is running around doing crazy things. NOBODY could have seen that ending coming, no way.

I am a huge Terminator fan so I particularly enjoyed Metalhead. Very lean plot with only a 40 minute run time.

It shows no pity or remorse, and absolutely will not stop until you are dead.

I think I just watched this one.  It was a nice change of pace!

I really like this show.  I am sad that I will soon be out of new episodes to watch.

that was friggen dark.

I did not see that episode but i bailed early in this series. Brilliant but too grim for me.

do yourself a favor and watch S4 E1
I just finally started season 4 and this might be the first episode I didn't love. I was a little bit disappointed.

why so good?  I rank it as the worst episode so far.  When I get In front of a computer I will explain why I didn’t love it.  I am curious to hear why you rank it so highly.

Just saw the one with the animated political critic.  Pretty good.  Followed that up with the Christmas shack episode...with the cyber implant.  Clever.

Don't have much to say other than I am a huge fan of Star Trek TOS and I thought this episode was a creatively dark and funny parody, especially when Nanette joins the crew and decides to fight back declaring "Stealing my pussy is a red f***ing line." :)

My only criticism is it may have been a little long. I'll be curious what you think of Metalhead.
