            The episode of the two men fucking in a game honestly was so shit. It was basically a whole episode of 'no homo' if they ended up together maybe it would have been better. I also think why the new season was so terrible was because there weren't in twists that were interesting enough as the twists in the early seasons

              Honestly utopia getting cancelled still haunts me that show was so fucking good and so short lived. I still mourn it

                            I enjoyed episode 2 of season 5. The ending had a strong message that I didn't actually get at first... After we hear the gunshot, and see the screen go black, we see people checking the update of the situation on their phones. We see people either having no reaction or very mild reactions. Did the main guy get shot? Did the intern get shot? Did they both get shot? Was it a misfire? The viewer doesn't know what happened and the whole point of that is that it doesn't matter, and I guess that's the Black Mirror-ey part? Like all news on social media, people forget within a matter of days.

                                  My main issue with Striking Vipers is the game itself. Why would anyone want to get the sh*t kicked out of them when they can have epic sex instead? Wouldn't the game developers just make the characters entirely sexless like The Simms?

                                  Also, nitpicking: you spelled משחק אינטראקטיבי wrong. Great vid, though I actually kinda enjoyed both Bandersnatch and season 5.

                                          USA can't make tv shows. They just squeeze it till shit comes out, because money. You wanna see the things you love die in front of your eyes? Let the USA make the show. You wanna see a gem for all eternity? Literally any one else to make the show.

                                                  People making videos about Black Mirror on YouTube while being sponsored by Nord VPN without a drop or irony is a good bit.

                                                  Also, half your points are completely wrong for reasons you don't understand and your content style almost seems like a parody of the millennial YouTube generation's retarded, spastic, ADHD drug-addled mindset.

                                                  That said, season 5 sucked (outside of one episode) and the Miley Cyrus episode was easily the worst BM episode ever made. Not even close. Awful.

                                                  Finally, I want to dive in on a fallacy in your opinion wrt America vs British tastes:

                                                  Being American I can safely say that there is a general difference in what we want from entertainment. However, it's not that different. We're basically the same population whether you like that or not. Having spent plenty of time in The UK, I can safely say that I found this out first hand. England in particular is just America with worse weather and food. Truly. Your population is as dumb, out of shape and racist as we are. Why? How? Well, we are you. We came from you. So, yeah.

                                                  When it comes to TV, British television is much more polarized than American television. Your shovelware sitcoms are truly the worst shit ever made. Fucking bottom-of-the-barrel dogshit that has no redeeming quality to them. Generic British sitcoms make "Big Bang Theory" look like fucking pieces of art. It's astoundingly bad.

                                                  On the flipside, "serious" British TV is lightyears beyond American offerings. Basically, when BBC or Sky or whoever the fuck really wants to make a quality show they absolutely crush it. The writing, acting and cinematography is on par with many major films! S1 of BM is a testament to that fact.
                                                  In that sense, America just doesn't hold a candle.

                                                  HOWEVER, that's not an issue of taste. That's an issue of budget and a direct cause of the difference between our two systems of major TV networks:

                                                  BBC is basically public broadcasting. The government (via the people) keep it running.
                                                  America has ABC, NBC. CBS and FOX as major networks. They are all private corporations. Money is their chief concern. We have public broadcasting (PBS) and they make amazing content but their budget is a fraction of what BBC has. They solicit donations between shows and the Gov't funding of public broadcasting is comically small.
                                                  In short, if PBS had BBC's budget they'd make shows of similar or better quality. They simply don't. Major networks play it safe because a failure or outrage impacts their profits directly.

                                                  It's not a sensibilities issue. We have mass shooting almost daily and nobody gives a fuck. You're not darker or more depressed or "deeper" wrt artistic tastes than America is. It's very similar but we're fundamentally set-up differently so it doesn't show itself as much.

                                                  As far as Netflix is concerned, that's a whole different novel sized post that I don't wanna make (lol). Netflix is global. Netflix doesn't cater to Americans as much as see that most of their viewers are Americans so...yeah.
                                                  BM turned to generic dogshit because the premise of BM is weak and quickly burned. Technology is killing us. We know lol

                                                  I mean, Game of Thrones turned to dogshit! That alone proves that it's not tastes but burnt-out mixing with greed and an unsustainable premise.

                                                        Season 5 is awful, but the second episode really make do.

                                                              First three seasons of BM were breathtakingly original for me. In American television, it's practically illegal to portray women at fault in domestic quarrels--there must ALWAYS be a way to blame a man, irrespective of how it has to be shoehorned in to the story. BM treated women as equal to men in callousness and invective.

As in, the writers made these episodes bland and one dimensional on purpose to demostrate tha degradation of quality that is characteristic of rapidly expanding technological societies.

Handful of white actors, and those characters that they play are always some cliche stereotype of a dumb white guy, or slutty/silly white girl. MAYBE some power house CEO white woman type, but thats the best they get to...
