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.
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.
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.
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.
