"three new stories" ?

three episodes or...? that'd be okay if they're movie length and "white bear" quality

Black Mirror feels like it's largely been on auto-pilot in the writing department for the last two seasons while everything else has gone up in quality. That said, still got chills watching the teaser and I'll be there day one. A return to the three episode format is a welcome return too.

Any idea how long each episode takes? I know the first two seasons had three episodes (not counting White Christmas which was a bonus episode), but seasons 3 and 4 having six episodes kinda spoiled me.

Yeah, felt like since the Netflix switch up it went from examining our relationship with technology to cool situation where technology is involved.

Can't wait to see what's next though.

Maybe more later in the year?

This reminds me I still need to watch Bandersnatch.

That being said, more Black Mirror makes me a happy man!

Tried watching this show once. Saw S1 E1, okay, that was cool let's check out E2 now... Wow. Nope, not my thing.

Got some nice actors for this season. Definitely going to watch. Hopefully with the smaller amount of episodes, they can focus more on each story.

You do know that each episodes are self-contained if you saw the first 2 episodes, right?

But if it's the depressing side of the 2nd episode that made you go "nope", it's probably better if you stay away I guess. :P

After season 4 and Bandersnatch my hype is at an all-time low.

EDIT: Seriously? Another fucking video game/VR episode? Come on Brooker, get some inspiration.

4 had some bright spots but it was really samey and uninspired so I hope this is better. 3 episodes is good.

I'm glad they're back to 3 episodes like back on C4. Hopefully that improves the consistency.

I hope this is good. Haven't enjoyed it as much since the switch to Netflix. Bandersnatch was an interesting idea but I would have preferred a normal episode.

Season 4 was a let-down to me, I feel like we'll never get the greatness of the 1st seasons, but I'm still interested in what they'll do this time around.

I don't mind only 3 episodes at all, hopefully the wait between "seasons" will be shorter, and I'm pretty sure we'll get a Christmas episode.

S4 was excellent. USS Callister, Crocodile and Metalhead are among the best in the entire series.

I cannot wait for S5!

Thats just what the showrunners want you to think. If you remember again the final episode of season 4, the story compilation there was actually good if they wanted to focus on one

Also, it is said to have 3 episodes, but trailer looks like it has more

Crocodile, USS Callister and Hang the DJ were all brilliant. Think people have unrealistic expectations for Black Mirror because they have enjoyed previous series more than current but you have to consider that the longer a premise like Black Mirror goes on the harder it's going to be to stay fresh and surprise you. The new episodes might be brilliant yet you won't get the same buzz because you've seen similar before.
