    The same song is in an episode of season 3.

    "Shut up and Dance" was brilliant. The feeling I was left with at the end was odd.

    Probably more so then "The Entire History of you" and "White bear".

    This series is incredible.

    Yeah Shut up and Dance was gripping... went from feeling sorry for Kenny and hoping it all worked out OK for him to being glad his life spiralled out of control...

    When you realise why Kenny is so horrified to be caught on camera... I felt like I needed a shower in that moment.

    Yeah it was one of those "I can't believe I" moments.

    Every episode had me feeling extremely uneasy.

    Brilliant writing.

    Season 4 dropping shortly. No confirmed release date, but they're dropping one preview per day.

    All of them look amazing. Metalhead is apparently terrifying, and USS Callister is apparently lighthearted (but will no doubt leave me with an exestential crisis at the end).

    Reviews already coming in, solid 8's.

    Yeah, I don't quite get why they've done this. They released one teaser per day until yesterday with no release date, and today they release the release date (three weeks from now) and just a ton of spoiler filled reviews from media who've seen advanced screenings of the episodes.

    So I binge watched this series earlier in the week, I'm telling everyone to watch it.
    It is very dark (even San Junipero is) so it will probably always be a bit under rated.
    Looking forward to the new season.

    I don't think I've ever felt so physically sick at a TV show as the ending of Shut Up and Dance. Don't know if I'll be able to watch that one again.

    This is why it's so good, I didn't start to catch on until toward the end whereas White Christmas I sort of figured out a bit earlier.
    Same with White Bear very clever to make you empathise only to be shocked at the end!

    But honestly you wouldn't show those to a first time viewer, to me it'd be best for someone to watch 'The entire history of you' first.

    That and White Christmas are the two most intense episodes by far.
    If one gets through those the rest (while equally fascinating) are easier to stomach.

    The only really weak one was the first episode imo, I try to encourage people to start with any other one.

    I thought That Waldo Moment and Man Against Fire weren't particularly strong.

    I contend That Waldo Moment was a superb play on how employers can f**k over and ruin the lives of employees with as much empathy as one has for mosquitoes. Pushed out of his skillset then hung out to dry. You're no use to me now so f**k off and die. It is just as dark as any other future, only for one, not all.
