vote for your two least favourite eps and another two will go.

Deadline: Wednesday 14 August at 10pm


18. Striking Vipers (5 votes | 12.50% / 14 votes (60.87%)



The visuals for Striking Vipers are incredible and does evoke the Tekken etc games and pushes it up a level. It's interesting to explore the relationship between the two leads but, after the build up, it doesn't really lead anywhere or explore the consequences like the show usually would.

19. Smithereens (9 votes | 22.50%)



Smithereens sort of sums up Series 5 in that the episodes aren't BAD per se but just very very average and not on that level which has made Black Mirror stand out above other shows. I guess that partially may be because the episode feels a few years too late? It's perhaps a concept that has had numerous think pieces and perhaps even TV episodes based on it before. There's no change up in the episode that changes your perspective, it's just social media is bad and we're all addictive, which we already know. I do like the strands of the social media company having more power to do checks etc that the police but nothing is really taken anywhere or explored as much as it could be. Andrew Scott does elevate the episode though.



20. Arkangel (10 votes | 14.29%)
21. Men Against Fire (14 votes | 20.00%)
22. The Waldo Moment (8 votes | 13.79%)
23. Metalhead (11 votes | 18.97%)

The National Anthem and Black Museum!

Shame Striking Vipers is out, although had Smithereens stayed any longer there would've been something wrong. laugh.gif
