I’ve watched the first two Black Mirrors of S4; USS Callister and Arkangel (the Jodie Foster directed one). For me:

Spoiler!
Black Mirror works best when looking at a reality just around the corner. I thought Arkangel was amazing because that reality is terrifying, and imaginable. I loved the way it mixed technology with otherwise unremarkable lives. I thought USS Callister was a good story but it fell down a bit because the idea of the duplicate people being autonomously sentient within the game seemed daft. Also the wormhole ending and the status on the other side didn’t make any sense.

You should read the book...
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

Excellent! The three big Russian heavies in the first episode looked impressively nasty, I thought.

I’m aware that it’s been around for a while, but I’ve just experienced Naked Attraction.

Thought the first episode of the new Inside No. 9 series was pretty underwhelming. Didn't like the rhyming idea at all and the [Shakespeare-derived] story was a pile of crap. Bellboy couldn't act, either, even to comedy-drama levels.

Not the best episode, a bit light hearted for me but reasonably enjoyed it.

yeah, i'm not a skyscraper-sized fan. seen a few episodes but it's eminently missable.

difficult for them to resist the temptation just to go for shock/freakshow value. in one memorable [to me] episode in particular, it seemed that almost none of the pickees were offering the same thing at all, i think they start off with say 'six' possibles, in the lineup [the picker had declared herself not quite sure about her preferences] i think they had say one regular-looking man, one regular-looking woman, one former woman who was well on the way to becoming a man, one former man who was well on the way to becoming a woman, & then a couple of, i forget exactly but it seems likely enough that they were both kind of 'intermediate cases'. i wasn't at all sure what Lord Reith would have made of it all.

Anyone else see the ITV doc about Panini/football stickers over Christmas? Well worth a look despite Giggs and some less than stellar supposed fans. Tons of stuff I didn’t know in it. The four guys who broke away from Panini post-Maxwell’s takeover to form Merlin had some balls between ‘em.

Yep, I watched that. Totally agree, well worth a look-see.

Mrs DL wanted to watch Feud, the Bette Davis/Joan Crawford thing starring Susan Sarandon/Jessica Lange. Have to say, I'm loving it. Six out of eight episodes down and the writing, acting and attention to period detail is great. Judy Davis as Hedda Hopper, Stanley Tucci [Jack Warner], Alfred Molina [Robert Aldrich] and Jackie Hoffman [Mamacita, Crawford's maid] are all superb.
