Black Mirror is one of my favorite shows and I didn’t think either of these episodes was great
I loved Hang the DJ, but didn't love San Junipero as much as the critics did. I really enjoyed it, and loved the world they created, but it wasn't even my favorite from that season.
I liked Hang The DJ more out of the two. But then again, I like a change of pace from the traditional BM episodes. The Twilight Zone would do this every now and then.
This is what is so great about black mirror, everybody can find a great episode that they just love. There is a common theme but it is all over the place after that. You never know what you are going to get, It’s such a good change of pace over other series where it’s good tv but often rinse and repeat without any finality.
And it’s really well written, you may not like an episode but it’s not because it was botched. Well except for uss Callister, worst of all of them imo
My favorite Black mirror episode I haven't seen mentioned, was also the first I watched
And not to be that guy, but I definitely prefer the “British” episodes to the more “Americanized” ones
Gleeson is a damn good actor.
If you haven’t seen it yet, watch about time. I am not a huge sucker for love movies but that one is solid
Righteous Kill (2008) — would not recommend
blonde chick was in halt and catch fire, great show. Black mirror is incredible but bothers my dreams
I liked the bm episode where memories are on a hard drive brain inplant that you can replay/ rewind
7 seconds...3 episodes in and nothing has really happened. Needs to pick up.
I second About Time. For what I thought was romcom my wife was making me watch, turned out to be a dope movie.
Netflix will now interrupt series binges with video ads for its other series
Netflix confirms "test;" video ads appear with a "but first, check out... " prompt.
SAM MACHKOVECH - 8/17/2018, 7:55 PM
Netflix has confirmed a major change to its video-streaming service, effective as of this week for at least some users: video ads for other Netflix series between episodes.
The news emerged via user reports, particularly on the primary Netflix Reddit community, in which users claimed that ads for entirely different series would play between episodes of a given show's binging. One initial claim said that "unskippable" ads for the AMC series Better Call Saul appeared between episodes of Rick & Morty and that this ad appeared while using Netflix's smart TV app on an LG set in the UK. Replies to that thread included an allegation that a video ad for I Am A Killer (a Netflix-produced true-crime series) appeared between episodes of the animated comedy Bob's Burgers.
An American Netflix user offered more details for exactly how the ads appear:
After the episode ended, I got a screen saying "More Shameless up next... " then the title card slid off screen, and it continued with, "but first check out Insatiable" [a Netflix-exclusive series] and started playing the trailer.
In a statement given to Ars Technica, Netflix described the change as follows: "We are testing whether surfacing recommendations between episodes helps members discover stories they will enjoy faster." The reasoning, Netflix's statement says, comes from its last controversial decision: to add auto-playing videos, complete with unmuteable audio, while browsing through Netflix content.
Netflix offered a major rebuttal to at least one Reddit claim, pointing out that the ads for Netflix content are entirely skippable.
Walmart may launch a video streaming service to battle Netflix, Amazon"A couple of years ago, we introduced video previews to the TV experience, because we saw that it significantly cut the time members spend browsing and helped them find something they would enjoy watching even faster," Netflix's statement says. Netflix did not confirm to Ars whether this new advertising initiative would be limited to specific platforms (smart TVs, game consoles, etc.) or territories or how long this "testing" period might last.
Additionally, a Netflix spokesperson clarified to Ars that the term "test" is key. These ads (which the company emphasizes will only be for Netflix content, not outside products or content) will, at least for now, appear for a "segment" of Netflix's userbase, as opposed to all users.
In response to recent outcry at Reddit's Netflix community, which has largely been negative, Netflix's spokesperson indicated to Ars that the company was mindful of "chatter on social channels" but is focused far more squarely on how users interact with these new video ads. In other words, if users engage with these promotions, Netflix will likely roll them out to many more users. (The company's statement about "video previews" appears to indicate that user data drove those clips' spread across all platforms and devices.)
Everyone cancel your script and let's show them we won't tolerate ads. Maybe collectively bargain back down to $8 a month while we're at it
except no one ever said "start promoting your shows better."
Wrong. It's actually a pretty common complaint on the internet.
i need to get out more, rarely leave the "i shit my pants at work" thread.
Nah fam, season two of Ozark comes out soon.
It is an entertaining thread that I enjoy seeing bumped.
Yeah I'm not gonna do this. I'm more outraged about ads on NBA jerseys tbh. If it goes from ads for just Netflix shows to ads for cars and toothpaste and everything else though I'm gonna be pissed
It's just disappointing to see the service that everyone thought would bring an end to cable slowly working their way towards the conventional cable model.
You summed it up in your gif. All startups either die or become the established businesses they were trying to disrupt
Aren't they just going the way of Hulu at this point?
That's just the next step in the evolution.
I don't know why you're lashing out at me so much lately but I don't care for it, young man.
I enjoy Amazon Primes platform a bit more than Netflix. I do wish the rating system was a bit more user-friendly on my firetv.
has anyone watched Disenchantment?
I want it to be good but I just know it's likely garbage.
If you notice the poster/box or whatever you want to call it for Netflix originals on the home screen is like triple the size of the other movies and shows
Nothing gets past deputy devine
I watched the first episode and laughed a few times. Will probably keep watching and see how it goes.
do they have a "netflix orginal" tab on netflix? that would solve any mystery.
Watched the first 3. It's not as good as Futurama but it's good for a few laughs.
American Vandals is pretty great
Season two got kinda dark, but has some heart
Anyone else have problems with their Netflix having to restart all the time during shows. Only happens on one of my TVs and not all the time, but when it does it’s annoying
Is it a vizio?
For some reason my vizio pops up "no internet connection " randomly on Netflix, while other apps on the same TV work fine
Yep, it's happen a good bit since the recent interface change.
samething is happening, but mine is a new panasonic.
This is probably going to suck, right?
Probably depends on how much you know about the case/appeals since season 1 aired. Yeah?
I’m going to watch, but have the lowest expectations and will probably still be disappointed
