Have You Watched the Most Recent Black Mirror Episode?
Bandersnatch is the name of the episode and after it first aired on Netflix December 28, the internet just lost it.
The episode is an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure film. The plot was set back in 1984, as we followed Stefan, a 19-year-old brilliant computer programmer. He adapted his favorite fantasy novel called Bandersnatch into a video game. You as the viewer will be making decisions for him. Yes, there will be option on what Stefan should do and you will be able to determine his ending.
This is such a new way to watch movie that none might have ever experience before. With multiple endings, viewers will be served good choices, bad choices, and even dark ones. Each path you choose may lead to an ending you won’t expect. The movie itself ranges between 40 minutes to 2.5 hours, depend on what you choose.
Critics from all over the place came in strong for this one. Some praise it as a masterpiece with its unique and complicated story, some concern about the execution and some feel it falls so short to the standard that Black Mirror has set.
So, go watch the new episode and let us know what you think! Don’t worry if you haven’t watched any episodes before, it is indeed a series, but each episode has no correlation with one another.
