Sadly on Netflix ...but still ..
Just watched the social media appocalypse that is episode 3 season 1 ...
Nosedive ..
A brilliant portrayal of the future in which Social Media interaction is currency ..
A must see imo ...and although far fetched is a true statement of the way it is heading ..
Personally I'm happy to be a 0.1 * off the grid ...
My world is _much_ less demanding ...and beyond my immediate circle of friends I dont feel I fit in anyway.
Ohhh for the days when People actually interacted and communicated using what they were born with..
cest la vie
Black Mirror’s "Nosedive" is a social media nightmare dressed like a pastel daydream

Loved the first 2 seasons and the Christmas special in particular

I have been looking forward to this new season 3 since Netflix announced it, I have watched the first 4 (of 6) so far and still really enjoying it, I just wish there was more than 6 episodes

On a positive note it has already been renewed for a 4th season :-party1

A huge shame the new series isn't going to be on terrestrial TV. I found the stories to be hugely imaginative and thought provoking.

Yes indeed Paul ...very frustrating indeed ..
Originally broadcast on CH4 ...but no longer ..
..and yet they are prepared to spend squillions of £££s on ferking big tent in a field full of cakes and pastries ..
Madness I calls it ..and just goes to show what Joe Public is enraptured by ...dont it ?
grrrr

From memory, Mr Brooker was a partner in an animation company my other half had worked with, they will sell their product to whoever pays best (or has the most attractive proposition for the long term). They really don't care if it is on Freeview or subscriber provider.

That sounds like every other production company to be honest.
