Black Mirror?

I haven't watched all of the episodes, but from what I have seen it's been great.

Watched White Christmas last night... and it's a doozy, but I highly recommend people give it a shot and since Black Mirror is an anthology series, you don't have to watch the previous season (though I think there are very minor background linkages among the episodes as things progress.) For the episode itself, you're in for a treat if you're a fan of a certain series lead from a certain period drama from AMC.

I skipped around San Junipero from Season 3 after seeing Redditors rave about the episode and because of Mackenzie Davis. Great concept for a story and definitely worth viewing.

I talked about USS Callister from Season 4 in the Star Trek thread and again I say that it's worth a watch. I was sold once I saw Cristin Milioti and Jimmi Simpson in the cast.. but Jesse Plemons ****ing knocked the episode out of the park.

Hang the DJ... oh man. Maybe it's because of my age and the thematic matter of the episode, but **** that's a definite must recommend from my end.

I'm already reading a lot of "It's SJW!" hate on the the last ep this season.

Bullshit.

I'm the first to hate on SJW nonsense but that's bullshit.

If you switch the sex and race of the protagonist and antagonist is it still a good story?

Why, yes, it is.

Do you gain something by keeping the sex/race the same for both? Is there a deeper meaning?

Yes, there is.

There's a huge difference between SJW nonsense and honest social commentary. I think this series gets that and doesn't dumb itself down...

I'm only a couple episodes ahead of you and in my opinion that is by far the worst episode so far

The reason for the march is they're extreme leftists that hate Trump.

These marches have as much to do with women's rights as Westboro Baptists had to do with "glorifying God."

We had a local march here. My wife and many of our friends (especially those with daughters) participated. It had little to do with Trump and had a lot to do with #metoo and other current issues surrounding women.

Men Against Fire

San Junipero is very thought provoking too even though I had to watch it 3 or 4 times to really appreciate it.
I'd add Hated In the Nation and Metalhead to that list.

I know several people who've said the same thing. Shame, I think a lot of people who would love the show can never make it past episode 1. Kind of wish the show didn't kick off with that one. I didn't mind the episode. I thought it was thought provoking

Ok, so I tried to watch this again after being told the first episode was the culprit for people not liking it, and I got 30 minutes into watching some dude ride his bike and watch porn ads before being bored out of my ****ing mind and turning it off.

I really enjoyed Electric Dreams on Amazon for the most part, and I kinda get the impression that this is supposed to be a least a little similar, but I'm just not feeling it with this show.

I'd suggest you start with White Christmas.

That's "15 Million Merits"

That's another rough one as an intro to the series although I personally enjoyed it.

As others have said...White Christmas is the one to start with. But for you, I'd moreso suggest Metalhead, Men Against Fire and Playtest...then perhaps Hated in the Nation and Black Museum after that.
