I liked it as well knowing full well it was not for us US folks (unless we hop a plane across the pond).

Probably not gonna be on BBC America, huh?  (Their schedule being too full with Top Gear and Star Trek: Next Gen.)

I found out that Season 5 of Black Mirror, one of my favorite TV shows, is going to air in June.

With it, I found out that... Andrew Scott will be in it! Wohoo! Can't wait!

I just found out that Black Mirror is supposedly inspired by an old favorite of mine … The Twilight Zone. Now I'm wondering if I can afford a Netflix subscription...……...

Update,

Anyway, I binged season 5 in .. one night continuous watch.

It's actually not advisable to binge BM at all. It's emotional exhausting, although in season 5, it feels quite alright. Well, compared to me binging all 4 seasons in a week.

Andrew Scott was really good in Smithereen, the second episode. He carried the whole episode, for the half of it I really forgot that he is Jim Moriarty or Andrew. It was powerful, emotional, and made me feel for him I even shed an ugly tears and I don't normally do that watching human movie. which makes it my favourite episode of season 5. Overall, this is not the strongest season but it's still good for me.

Unsolicited advices before you watch Black Mirror:

- do not read spoilers. No no no NO! That is seriously big part of the enjoyment. Please remember my constipated face any time you are tempted to read spoiler! 😠

- If you find coincidences of BM episodes with reality, BM did it first. It's weird and what makes it more awesome. Example National Anthem, The Waldo Moment, Nosedive.

- Each episode of BM is a stand-alone story. You don't need to watch them in sequence. There are Easter eggs here and there but that is all the connections that they have. They are all different, sometimes the concept is familiar but it's used to tell different stories. Having said that, the first episode is really really weird so be prepared if you start from that one. You might hate it. It left me dumbfounded but I was so intrigued that I hovered my hand to click on the next one after I recovered.

- It is mostly about technology and how it impacts people's life, in its intended ways or not.

Anyway, eventually viewers seem to have certain expectation when they watch a BM episode. For example, some always expect weird technology, which imo, it's not what the show is. I'd say don't let it ruin your enjoyment and form your own take for the series. The greatest thing about BM to me; it keeps me thinking. I have millions of questions and what-ifs for every episode. It fascinates me beyond hours of the actual show content, and that is, what I'd say a great show.

One piece of forgotten information that is probably related to Sherlock Holmes (not).

Robert Downey Jr (well he played Sherlock :P)  bought the right of black mirror episode (The Entire History of You, not my favorite, but apparently favorite of many) with a plan to turn it into a movie. Not sure how the development though.
