Did a quick search and couldn't find an old topic on this (I'm sure there is one) but yeah... This is one of the best shows on Netflix.

Season 4 was great. I just wish there were more episodes in a season.

Each episode of this show is easily better than 99% of modern sci-fi films.

Basically, it is like the Twilight Zone, but better.

I've seen the first 3 and watched the first episode of Season 4 last night. I love how they're all (generally) standalone stories and they've gotten better from season to season.

That's one thing I like about it. S4 E6 has some callbacks/tie-ins to a lot of previous episodes. That doesn't spoil anything really, so make sure to look for them during that episode.

They are all stand alone stories. They could casually be connected by little things but no two episodes are related story wise

But black mirror has been good for years. I killed the new season the other day. Easily one of the best and most thought provoking shows out there. Especially since they are all based on technology

Enjoyed the new season.

Was not much of a fan of the episode Jodi Foster directed. I don't recall the name of the episode off the top of my head.

I started watching with season 1 but does this show leave anyone else feeling really unsettled? It almost derails my day with how much I think about it, also makes me feel anxious. 

I really appreciate the show but I almost feel like I have to force myself to watch it.

I've thoroughly enjoyed all of them except for the first episode of Season 3 (the one with Bryce Dallas Howard). That one just makes my skin crawl and I can't finish it.

I genuinely adore this show. Haven't disliked a single episode, but there are some that are more lacking than others. As KSpan stated, there are a couple that were really, really tough to watch (the first episode of the series still turns my stomach at the end).

That was one of the better ones, saying that the only thing important in society is social acceptance. Mainly because it's horribly true.

Right, and they nailed it by having such a subtle practice turn into something so overt and calculated in a form that is very easy to relate to and maybe only a step or two from current reality. Reminds me of that ridiculous Peeple app a few years back and I know China is going this way with their social credit system initiative. Yuck.

Arkangel - it was ok but not one of the better ones of season 4. It was better than Hang the DJ which I found dull.

The last 3: Hang the DJ, Metalhead, and Black Museum were easily the best of this season, but the first three were good to me too. I don't know that there is really a bad episode of this show yet. The one about the AI bees in a past season just seemed overly long.

The reason this show creeps you out is because it is an accurate portrayal of the human condition. Technology can, has, and will expose the ugliest parts of people. This is exactly where we're headed in the future.
