    Black Mirror: Striking Vipers

    This was one of the most awkward experiences of my life, like God it was embarrassing to see it play out, I really want to know what was the pitch for this episode like, I guess it went a little like this "so there's this guy right and he and that other guy who's his best friend right they're having virtual gay sex but it isn't actually gay because one of them is a female character right and and and…

So please go and hug your mom, if she's away call her and tell her you love her, she's been through a lot both as a woman and as your mother, go before it's too late.

    Wow! This was an experience devoid of any human emotions or feelings, I could have stared at a rock and got more sentimental than anything that happened in this movie, the characters don't seem to be interested at all so why should I exactly? I hear people saying it's visually stunning but it doesn't look much different than any commercial sci-fi flick that came out in the past ten or fifteen year, I guess because it's more orange, even the…
