    Ranking Black Mirror: spoilers allowed.

    This is a work in progress for me. I'm curious what your opinions are

    1. San Junipero - A cliche, I know, but it's as good as its reputation
    2. USS Callister - Can we get a sequel please?
    3. The National Anthem - great opening
    4. Nosedive - loved the high concept of it all
    5. Fifteen Million Merits - Get Out!
    6. Hated in the Nation - does for bees what Birds did for birds
    7. Be Right Back- I didn't like it as much as some, but is staying with me more and more
    9. Hang the DJ - I'm a sucker for romance
    10. White Christmas - torture is a snow globe for pretty much an eternity
    11. The Entire History of you - Our faulty memories serve a purpose
    12. Shut Up and Dance - I had a hunch about Kenny after the restaurant scene, then forgot about it until the end + Bron!
    13.Playtest - I normally detest horror but this was pretty good
    14. White Bear - loved the lead actress
    15. Metalhead - too one note for me.

    The rest is coming.

    5. "Black Museum" (S4)

    I'm horribly behind on most of the prestige TV of the last many years, but this show would probably make my personal top 3/5 of the decade?

    I think I both love and hate this show, lol. Some of its low moments are unforgivably bad, and most of it is really just enjoyable trash. There’s some pretty great highs, though (well, San Junipero).

    1. San Junipero
    2. Fifteen Million Merits
    3. Arkangel
    4. Nosedive
    5. Black Museum
    6. Playtest
    7. Crocodile
    8. USS Callister
    9. Hated in the Nation
    10. Men Against Fire

    11. White Bear
    12. Metalhead
    13. Be Right Back
    14. The Waldo Moment
    15. The National Anthem
    16. Hang The DJ
    17. The Entire History of You
    18. White Christmas
    19. Shut Up and Dance

    I've only seen 6 episodes, so I'll rank those.

    1. San Junipero
    2. The Entire History of You
    3. Hang the DJ
    4. Nosedive

    5. Shut Up and Dance
    6. White Bear

    I've generally loved/liked all of this, but had some reservations on White Bear and Shut Up and Dance.

    1. USS Callister
    2. San Junipero - But it should be pronounced hoo-NEE-pe-ro.
    3. Hated in the Nation - I know it doesn’t rank high on a lot of lists, but I thought this was a lot of fun.
    4. Nosedive
    5. The National Anthem
    6. The Entire History of You
    7. Metal Head
    8. White Christmas
    9. Be Right Back
    10. Hang the DJ
    11. White Bear
    12. Shut Up and Dance - Great, but I never want to see it again.
    13. Playtest - This might be higher if it weren’t for the incredibly dumb final twist.
    14. 15 Million Merits - I found this incredibly overrated. Both the love story and the satire are pretty shallow.
    15. Crocodile - Though Andrea Riseborough nearly saves this.
    16. Arkangel
    17. Black Museum - Douglas Hodge and Alexandra Roach probably give the worst performances in the series.
    18. The Waldo Moment

    n/s Men Against Fire

    I only actively disliked the last three, though. I think even the worst episodes generally have good concepts, but they tend to fly off the rails in the final act.

    Good:
    1. The entire history of you
    2. Shut up and dance

    Interesting:
    3. National Anthem
    4. Nosedive
    5. San Junipero
    6. Black Christmas
    7. White bear

    The rest are either a tired repetition (season 4) or way too ridicolous
