vote for TWO and we'll get rid of another two wooo

deadline: Friday 9th August at 8pm

20. Arkangel (10 votes | 14.29%)



Arkangel is one of those Black Mirror episodes with a fantastic concept but it doesn't deliver those highs that it should. It tells the usual story of the difficulty in seeing your children grow up and adds in the technology of tracking them. My main issue with the episode is that it doesn't really go anywhere and ends on what feels is a damp squib. There was lots of potential in the episode but ultimately it falls flat.

21. Men Against Fire (14 votes | 20.00%)



Men Against Fire has similar themes to Arkangel but is even more hamfisted in its message. It again sees the protagonist with a chip/implant that alters what they see. Whilst it has a significant and interesting message, it is all the more obvious than what you would normally come to expect with Black Mirror. It doesn't really take the plot anywhere either, the 'twist' is essentially the episode.




22. The Waldo Moment (8 votes | 13.79%)
23. Metalhead (11 votes | 18.97%)

Agree with Haus on this one. After those there are only a couple more weak spots before this gets tough.

Smithereens and Black Museum for me. I maybe need to watch Museum again, but I was thoroughly underwhelmed by it. Though admittedly I don't remember that much about it now, other than the ending.

It says something that everything above Museum on that list is now A+ material. I have no idea how I'm going to choose between some of them over the later rounds.

The 2 newer ones will be the next to go for me, even though I did enjoy them.

Striking Vipers and Bandersnatch for me. 1st is dull, the 2nd was a fun idea but the story was pretty dull

Is Crocodile missing from the list because that's by far my least favourite episode. Possibly my least favourite of episode of TV ever.

Bandersnatch would be my other vote

Black Museum and Smithereens!

Shame to see Men Against Fire out so early, although it's never received much love at all. Mind you I haven't rewatched it or any others from the season, so idk what my thoughts of it would be now. laugh.gif

BRB and the entire history of you. Both are extremely boring.

Can't believe people are voting for Striking Vipers. This is actual homophobia.

The tie has to be broken by 8pm because I ainít taking out an entire series in one swoop as appealing as that may be.
