  1. I enjoyed it. I would have been just as happy maybe without the last twists... but Sian Clifford was amazing.

  2. I think all three episodes have been brilliant in their way own but if they turn out to be the best three episodes of the season I'll definitely be disappointed. There are usually one or two stand-outs every series and I'm hoping they're still to come.

    Sian is just sensational. I think every episode has definitely been really strong so far but I'm hoping for the best to still be on the way!!

  5. It was a great one, if a bit QAnon-y.
     
  6. This is still a thing? I remember brefily being obsessed with it and having a few nightmares over it.

  7. I'll have to investigate! I remember being about 16 and smoking lots of weed and watching it with my freind after school everyday. I'm definitely still a fan.

  8. Honestly, "Black Mirror" feels like a distant dream compared to this show. They've run out of steam so quickly, and yet, this two-person team has done more than 30 consistently interesting, challenging and fun short stories. Can't say I've watched their previous work (and judging by that "Psychoville" crossover, not sure if I will), but I can't praise this enough as a whole.
     
  9. This week's was my favourite of the current series, I enjoyed all the twists and turns.

    Hoping for a properly scary one soon, a la The Harrowing.

  10. Pretty much echoing what others have said, I've liked the 3 episodes from this season so far but my favourites always end up being the scary ones so hoping one comes along soon.

  12. The Adrian Dunbar scenes were fun, but… that episode was a bit shit.

    I thought it was another good-not-great one, which is a shame because I was really interested in it from the premise. It set up its themes really well and it captured the unease of socialising with strange people very accurately, but the plot just wasn’t strong enough to galvanise everything they threw in.

    It was obvious from the beginning where the story was going, but it took a hell of a long time to get there with the Adrian Dunbar scenes and commentary on the film industry added in too. I could have let it off if the final twist was any good, but it really wasn’t. It was the second most predictable resolution after “the parents did it”.

    Well holy shit, that might have been the best one from this series so far. It wasn’t necessarily the most creative or shocking, but it was a fantastic script with fantastic actors and fantastic direction. Not to mention the humour was totally on point as always.

    I’m very intrigued by next week’s episode too which is definitely setting itself up as something lighter. All their series closers so far have been horror episodes so I’m wondering if there’s more to it than meets the eye.

  15. Loved this week's, my favourite of the series. They do creepy and sinister so well.

  16. Every episode this season has been fantastic. Even Lip Service, which I didn't really click with I can acknowledge as being good. Not to jinx, but if next weeks is up to snuff I don't think we've had such a consistent series.

    The last 10 minutes was what this show is all about, I was gripped. The choking scene was shockingly realistic too.
