    It seems that in Season 5, Black Mirror lost the most important technology - the balls.
    No longer did I feel challenged by the messages voiced in the episodes. In every episode I waited for the _actual_ twist... The twist, that throws me out of balance upon realizing I was lead to the wrong direction the whole episode. Alas, it never came. No interesting exploration of the potentialities of technology. No dystopian overtones, that make you more anxious than Truman Show.
    Striking Vipers: A lame attempt to please the more left-oriented audience. The big questions the scenario rises were not explored in the necessary depth, that the shows own standard requires. They were just having fun and in the end made a clear statement, that infidelity can be a good thing, and gender might be only a social construct - which it isn't, by the way. In the end, there was no real conclusion and no real payoff. Just two dudes having sex in a virtual reality fighting game... Which itself is a stupid scenario. If the creators of such game were to program such possibility, it would no longer even be a fighting game and the culture around it would change immediately. The politics in this episode are clear and are not really challenged by the story itself. There's nothing wrong liking a little penis every now and then either... It doesn't make you gay. Somehow.
    Smithereens: A lame attempt to convey a normal everyday message through a melodramatic hostage situation. The message of "don't look at your phone while driving" is common sense and we are asked to sympathize with a idiot who doesn't possess it. The scenario is very understandable: you mess up badly, but in your anger place the blame on something external, because the quilt and pain is too huge to accept. However, because it so understandable, it's also very common and thus too normal to be a Black Mirror story. The ending was very hollow as well. The man dies. Is this because he deserved it for his idiocy? He would've deserved to live with his quilt, regret and the fact, that his little phone call didn't give him any true catharsis. Because in the end, he is an idiot and his idiocy cost him his love and no one can yell at a phone loud enough to bring back the dead. How is, then, the woman pressing the button on the computer connected to the sniper shot? Nobody knows... They probably thought it looked cool. The message was bland and no real twist happened. This episode felt a tad patronizing.
    Rachel, Jack and Ashley too: Miley Cyrus being a pop puppet is very accurate. Her artistry in song-writing is not. The logic is so horrible in this one. The character development of Rachel is disrupted and completely left unresolved. How does the protagonist grow as a person from the experience? The episode had too much comedy in it to be taken seriously as a Black Mirror episode. The Nine Inch Nails adaptations were kinda weird. The message was perfect for some teen movie: follow your heart and do what you wanna do, instead of doing what others want you to do. Puh-lease, Black Mirror, you are better than this.
    My favorite episode? Striking Vipers, because I liked the milieu of the game. Otherwise, all of them sucked.

    A reference to TRON and TRON Legacy: The building at the end of the Ashley Too episode, that Ashley gives concert, is way too similar to Sam Flynn's arcade building in TRON and TRON Legacy, and titled BOB'S instead of FLYNN'S.

    I just started watching this series and just watched "Ashley 2". I really loved this episode. It started a bit slowly but progressed rapidly. The sisters were believable and as time went on got better and better.

    I just wish it was more episodes - episode 1 and 3 were very BMish to me. 2 was more of a PSA.

  • Rachel M

    I think #Tucker is referencing Malcolm Tucker from The Thick of It, the true king after the Game of Thrones king

    • Rachel M
      Rachel M 13 days ago

      I actually think it might be because The Thick of It is British and seems up Brooker's alley and he won best comedy personality alongside Peter Capaldi: "there was a double win too for Armando Iannucci’s scathing political satire The Thick of It, which saw Peter Capaldi named Best TV Comedy Actor for his performance as ascerbic spin doctor Malcolm Tucker"

    The Sugar Ape magazine cover with Ashley O is a callback to Nathan Barley - the TV show written by Booker and Chris Morris.

    None of these are "missed Easter eggs". Like I never watched the show until this weekend and I quickly noticed the same tech being used as well as the connections to other stories.

    Striking vipers was a typical black mirror episode which I liked, good twist at the end.
    Smithereens was a bit boring and dragged out but I see what they were trying to get at.
    Ashley Too was interesting and almost like watching a film but the ending ruined it, just corny.

    I could never miss the “Oh but anyone” song that plays in almost every black mirror episode, cause it’s such a bad song 😬😝

    One Easter egg that I think was missed was in striking vipers, when Anthony Mackies character goes to log on to the new game for the first time, the notification icon has an ouroboros in it, this could be a reference to altered carbon as Anthony Mackie is reprising the role of takeshi kovac. The ouroboros is a symbol heavily used in altered carbon

    Easter eggs like “Skillaine St” and other examples of putting names from previous characters in titles to fill word spaces is kind of irritating. It comes across as lazy to be honest. I don’t know why people eat that up. The world building is interesting- seeing where things line up on the timeline, dialogue parallels, etc, but they actually seem to have some purpose

  • Dimitri Safarikas

    #EasterOmelette : Too many easter eggs, just for the sake of artificially linking all the stories. Leave each of these episodes alone, they don't need a greater plot, they're perfect as they are ... >.

    Black Mirror is turning too "American" (by that I mean commercial) and losing its more gritty roots.

    If they only put as much time into writing new episodes with original ideas as they do putting "Easter Eggs" into current episodes, this series could still be compelling.

  • KapeKlaw
    KapeKlaw 20 days ago +1

    This show is starting to have continuity errors. If the news is reporting the architect committing multiple murders meaning these events are happening at the same time as the Ashley O episode, and there's an ad for the memory device from the first episode in the Ashley O episode....then the device used on the architect wouldn't be a working prototype, they should already have that technology upgraded...my only explanation is that they're on different planets, as previously hinted in the Prime Minister Pig episode.

    Another easter egg. In the Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too episode: when Jack and Rachel drive up to Ashley’s house in their dad’s mouse car there is a phone number written on the back. “1 (800) GO-MOUSE” [1 (800) 466 - 6873]. When this number is called it connects to a phone s*x line where you can be connected to speak with either men or women....not sure if this is a number for black mirror or an actual phone s*x line.

  • AshAngg2000
    AshAngg2000 22 days ago +1

    Idk if it's specifically one thing or the game just used a general image, but at the end of S5E3 when Ashley O is doing the NIN song we see that the Ashly Too bot has a sticker on it. It's an Anarchy sticker from Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Which I think is a cool little easter egg (if it is one) since the scene we see it in is a similar setting/vibe as the opening chapter of the LIS:BTS game.
    Of course, that's only if it's really an easter egg to that and not just me seeing a connection that's not there... XD

    Season 5 was not good.
    Episode 1 was aight,but kinda gay .
    Episode 2 was just trash .
    Episode 3 'with miley cyrus' was so stupid and disappointing.
    This was not good and im a bit surprised since black mirror usually is worth the wait and mind blowing.

    You skipped over #StJuniperStrike
    People were striking against their controversial experiments and treatments on people during Ashley O's Wembly performance. That's around the time the guy ends up moving and opening the Black Museum. He was funded by TCKR who stopped funding him which is why #Tucker is trending

    There is no need for any of these details to connect the episodes with each other.
