Yeah, I'm psyched for Black Mirror! Took them long enough to announce the damn date on that one. :lol

No kidding. And I'm fairly confident I'll watch all (6) episodes within two days.....heck, if I can get started on them at 8:00 or 9:00 at night I may just do them all in one night  :lol   I'm just hoping they hold up to the previous seasons, there's always the risk when something gets that popular and is highly regarded it could fall short but NETFLIX has a pretty good track record.

I'll smash that shit in under a day EASY. :blob:
I trust Charlie Brooker to deliver more great episodes. I'm especially intrigued by the Star Trek parody, because it's completely new for Black Mirror, and I can't wait to see what direction they'll go with that.

My brother and I are curious about that one as well.

Guess I'll wait for Netflix then. I downloaded the first 5 episodes  of season 2 a while back, but just haven't had the time to get to them. Looking forward to it.

It'll be the reverse of a standard Star Trek Holodeck episode (where the crew go somewhere boring...).  So the staff of a Jazz Bar use a Holosuit to become the crew of the federation flag ship   ;D

I'm sure it will be something along the lines of VR - I do wonder if it could end up being like the Red Dwarf episode 'Back to Reality'.

Binged the first (7) episodes last night......will probably hammer out the last (5) tonight. I'm really digging this season a lot.

Glad you're enjoying it. :tup Those last episodes are even better imo, so you should enjoy the rest.

Goddamn... Netflix Canada doesn't seem to have it yet.  :zeltar:

I love how a lot of the actors are from prior sci fi shows like Continuum, Stargate etc. It's like they have their own little sci fi actor club  :lol

Yeah, I love spotting the same actors in these shows. :D It's not just the genre shows either, but basically anything filmed in Vancouver (including big scifi movies)
Half the reason I'll become aware of a show and check it out is because someone from a previous scifi show is in it. And you're not even allowed to have a Canadian scifi show without Amanda Tapping directing something. She directed 4 episodes this season. :hat

Finished it up. Wow, what an ending to a season! Iím perplexed at how theyíre going to move the show along. Itís gonna be crazy.



Spoilers:

Ok Blob I need some help piecing together what happened at the end there. Did Vincent somehow end up in the Therapist (Amanda Tapling?) and, then a traveler entered the old Vince? Iím confused as to what went down there.

Yeah, that's what happened. He had the crazy dude build that machine, so he could transfer his consciousness into the therapist, leaving his body as an empty braindead shell for the director to find and think he was dealt with, then he gets to continue hiding in a new body.
So I guess he has no reason to bother anyone again now that he can quietly live out his life without fear of being exposed to the director, although I'd like to see the character return some day.

So now the only major threat is just every single organization in the entire world. :lol I hope the show gets renewed, because I'm also very curious to see what they'll do from here.

I hope itís renewed as well. Itís a cool show.

Youíd think the traveler who inhabited Vince would find the machine and theyíd figure it out? And, Iím curious as to the fate of Simon?

Simon would be a loose end, so I'd think he'd have been killed right after, probably by the machine which he promised he'd use to fix him, then destroy the machine.

I wasn't a big fan of the finale but overall it was a very good season. I'm looking forward to S3 but I fear they might not renew it as it also felt a little bit like a series finale, as if they told them they aren't gonna make a new season so they did the best they could with the plotlines (Vincent and the travelers got a Director msg to stay away of each other few episodes back, why was the end so focused on that?)
