Yeah, the whole blocking subplot was the terrifying part. Oh, and the cookies. (I'll never think of them in the same way again.)

I liked Crocodile the best out of the new episodes. Brutal.

Yep, watched it yesterday. It certainly had novelty value, and the concept of making some decisions for the characters was fun. Not sure that that story itself was all that fantastic though.

itís not about the story, itís about the journey and the concept of free will/fate. the story being only so-so is kind of the point...

what was your ending?

Re: Black Mirror

It was interesting to make choices for the main character, and then seeing the results knowing I could've chosen differently. I probably saw most of the endings. I may go through it again seeing as I probably missed some of the footage. A better idea than actual story though. As a Black Mirror "episode" it's bottom of the barrel. As a concept it is memorable.

Very much agree with this. I imagine they could of made this a 5 hour movie if they really wanted to build up the story but.

took me and my wife about 2.5 hours to get through it, and iím assuming we got the most favorable? outcome after several non-favorable ones that let us retrace our steps.

It says its an hour and a half but my gf was like, this is taking ages. I'm pretty sure we reset a few times. I think I enjoyed the storyline more than her as well.
