First episode was my favorite of the season. Really liked the Men Against Fire episode too.

Anyone watch episode 6? It's the longest one. I watched playtest and San Junipero. What season 3 ep should I watch next?

I thought San Junipero (episode 4) was beautiful. Epiodes 2 and 3 were good too. I disliked the rest.

It shouldn't have moved to the US. Far too much in the nose.

I actually had to bail on episode 1, but episode 2 was better.

Watched one last night and enjoyed it immensely. Anyone care to rank these? Only 13 or so total eps right?

Finally started S3 tonight. The first ep is really uneven.

Spoiler: show
The lead actress is great. The premise is a little far-fetched; of all the concepts this show has thrown at me, this is one of the tougher to swallow, even if they do a good job of creating this particular world (I swear it's the set from The Truman Show). The story really picks up once she gets picked up by the truck driver (Cherry Jones, here much more likable than her character in Transparent). I think this episode's biggest problem is how much time they spend setting up the premise -- it's perfectly clear within the first 5-10 minutes, but they keep beating the horse for another 20 mins before anything interesting happens.


High Maintenance basically made the same commentary in 10 minutes, and it was way more impactful.

This show seriously fucks with your head man. Pretty fucking cool.

Can't get my wife to watch it. I told her the plot of the first episode, and she just said, "I wish I didn't even know that plot. I'm not going to watch that."

She didn't even react that way when I explained the plot of Human Centipede.

Fuck. I made myself think about the plot of Human Centipede. :cry:

Shut up and Dance blew my mind. I think it may be the best one, especially with Exit music added in at the end.

Nosedive doesn't have the same "pain in the pit of my stomach" mindfuck that the original show had. I'm glad to know it comes back around.

Haven't watch it yet, but I did like San Junipero very much.

San Junipero and Shut up are the best ones.
