Black Mirror: Season 5 Reviews
I love anthology series' with a different cast of characters every week. I find it exciting to meet new characters, though I'm sure it is a challenge for the story to introduce new characters all the time AND tell a story. That's why this series is so appealing, they have done a good job.
I am looking forward to Season 5.
The fact that it stopped the story and made me go back several times was incredibly frustrating. I understand the point of it, but as a film that is supposed to have an engaging narrative this did not work for me in the slightest. I was constantly pulled out of my immersion by the often superficial choices I was faced with. I couldn't get invested in the characters or the path Stefan was going down, because often when it was just getting interesting it would divert me back to something I had already done, just to choose the option I avoided previously. At the end of the day I want to see a film with engaging characters that sweeps me away to a point where I get caught up in the story and the world it takes place in. With this, I just felt like I was biding my time until the next decision came up, hoping I picked the right one that wouldn't end in a total waste of time.
