I don’t know about you all, but I have found Black Mirror season 3 to be entirely disappointing so far (watched 2 episodes). Did it become pretty bad when Netflix ordered this season? I remember feeling so on-the-edge-of-my-seat for the first two seasons, but this last couple of episodes are just... meh.
