Black Mirror - Bandersnatch

Recommended Posts

I liked the breaking of the 4th wall and the way that they weave previous episodes into this. The Metalhead references were blatant throughout (same director) but I liked the regular use of the White Bear logo and how it naturally fitted into the branching storyline image. Then the USS Callister cast mentions on the newsfeed. And more. 

 

There's also got to be another successful phone code you can input.

I quite enjoyed it. Typically it would be an 'average' episode rather than bad/great but with the interaction it put's it above average for me. I liked that they experimented and played around with the concept.

Hmm cute idea but didn't really work for me. Just felt kinda loose and not particularly engaging

I agree it just took me out of the story rather than making me feel more involved.

 

Highlight for me was Colins Akira print

I'm typing this while the episode is still ongoing such is my interest. Shame because I was interested in the concept but I really don't like the way it's been handled here.

That was great. 

 

David Cage can stop making games now. 

 

The editing was seamless, really impressive. I'm not sure how many sound mixes they recorded or if it was a trick but it works so well. 

 

Spoiler

It uses rumble on the PS4 app which is an amazing touch

Yeah but still didn't engage me. Though seeing Jeff Minter on telly was a rare treat

This is Black Mirror, of course there's no happy ending.

 

An actor often asks

 

What is my motivation?

 

I wanted to 

 

complete the game

 

but I didn't want to

 

kill his Dad or the computer for that matter. It seems I was right on one count but wrong on the other

I thought this was really clever - Will Poulter was excellent.

 

But come on, you're giving me a choice where one of the answers is

Spoiler

Tangerine Dream?

I'm picking that every day and twice on a Sunday. Cobblers to the outcome!

I think that's why I didn't like it. For me I was expecting an experience similar to a Telltale game where I make choices and get MY ending. I didn't want to keep going back and choosing different options.

It was worth it just so I could put The Thompson Twins into my Walkman again.

 

I generally don't like multiple ending/branching narratives because when I sit down to watch a programme I want to experience a vision from an autuer. But like a previous poster said the meta elements tied in with the vision beautifully.

 

The setting and sense of place were pitch perfect too. Wimpy burger!

 

Check out the BBC's Commercial Breaks programme on Ocean which inspired it. Genuinely hilarious and fascinating in equal measure.
