I saw there was a thread for Season 2, but might as well get a proper one started.

New season shows up on Netflix on October 21st.

I was waiting for midnight for Luke Cage and decided to check this out, and watched the first two episodes. I'm loving it so far, but Jesus, what a mindfuck. I was trying to describe it to a coworker this morning, and what I came up with is that it is like The Twilight Zone or Outer Limits, except where in those shows you might find out it is aliens at the end, in Black Mirror you find out it is aliens that want to rape you.

Do not binge watch this show.

Excellent show, a real throwback but with modern themes. A+++

But if you binge watch it you will become suicidal.

My favorite is by far the Christmas Special. That shit stayed with me for weeks.

Christmas special, was that the dude who wanted to see his daughter and Jon Hamm? That shit was depressing and insane.

I'm happy to hear this has another season coming out soon, love the hell out of this show. Unlike the above advice, I did binge watch it.. did not kill myself, luckily.

Yeah, that was the Christmas special.

Finished all the current episodes, and they weren't quite as bad for me as that second episode with all the people on the stationary bikes. For some reason what they did to that girl in the talent show just fucked with me bad.

Don't get me wrong, that whole blocking thing is really fucked up too. Particularly when they did it to Hamm at the end. How could you not end up killing yourself if EVERY person in the world was blocked? Can't watch anything on TV or movies (even images of people are blocked), can't surf the internet because all pics would be have the people blocked, can't go to any store, etc. Can't even watch fucking porn.

Or the intellect trapped in the AI, totally fucked up. But I think the talent show girl fucked me up more because they showed so much more of the aftermath of it, and the guy was just trying to help her (and get some pussy, sure).

Great show though, really looking forward to more episodes.

I've just started picking this back up. I randomly saw the episode where the people filmed the chick getting chased by the "murderers" and really like it but never followed up on the rest. Only episodes I didn't really enjoy was the election episode and the "her" wannabe episode. Christmas episode was all kinds of fucked up though.

First episode of new season was pretty meh. Bryce Dallas Howard getting a liiiiittle fluffy. Maybe she's just pregnant in real life.

Overall point being made seemed a little heavy handed on this one.

Haven't all episodes points been heavy handed throughout the series? Weirdly enough, it works for me in this show. I enjoyed the first episode. Not the best yet, but not the worst either.

First episode of the new season was ok, more of a "what a shitty world we're heading toward," but the second one is fuuuuuucked up. Christ, I might have nightmares.

Got the wife to watch S3 Ep1 with me, she hasn't seen it before tonight. She liked it and I am thankful this episode was pretty tame. Possibly the best one I could introduced her to the series with. She is in for a rude awakening.

I'm not quite through with episode 1, but the first half was annoying as fuck.. started getting good halfway through, just before the truck lady.
