Some of them are pretty damned grim, though.  That one about the insurance investigator . . . geez.

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.

USS Callister? Oh man, so good.
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.

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.
Okay so here it is.  There may be spoilers about other episodes within.  Proceed with caution.

I agree...whilst still very good, it doesn't quite rise to the exceptional standard of the rest of the show.

Just finished watching all 4 seasons.  What a great show!  Very reminiscent of the Twilight Zone.  I agree that for the most part it is all so believable that these scenarios could play out in the not too distant future.  Does anyone know if it will continue for another season?

Watched the cyclist/talent show audition episode and the pig f-er episode.  The latter was the first episode I've seen that I didn't care for, but the former was excellent.  

I just figured out that I had started on Season 3, which was really good.

You have to have some context for the latter episode to really strike home, even though Brooker says it was coincidental.

I am working on season 4 but I think season three was the best season I have seen so far.  It had my two favorite episodes.

Watched the first two seasons and this show is phenomenal. Enjoyed all of it but White Bear and the Christmas episode were certainly my favorites. It's crazy to think where technology will be in years to come if it continues to take over everything like it's been doing.
