I'll give it a try and let you know what I think.

But with plenty of B-ball tonight and tomorrow, it will have to wait.

I think the one I liked the most was the "like me" one. Where everyone's interactions were aimed at getting a better reputation.

"Nosedive". I think that one's my favorite as well. It seems like it's already happened to a much lesser extent. I could imagine a company not hiring somebody do to bad community reviews.

I've watched it recently too. Some of them are very fascinating stuff.

But a lot of the themes are actually mason/illuminate/luciferian, and much more blatant and obvious than you typically see. During several episodes, I kept thinking "wow they aren't even trying to hide it anymore".

Its also a peak at what science is actually working on by combining technology and human tissue and what direction they want to take things.

Ive watched a couple. Both were pretty decent. lol...The very first one with the British Prime Minister seemed almost a little too real.

OK, I watched two but wasn't impressed. I was expecting a twist at the ends but both were fairly straight forward and unsurprising.

However, I did choose the episodes to watch based upon them featuring Jodi Whittaker and Hayley Atwell. And the Hayley Atwell had some of the best boob shots I've seen of her.

Last night I watched the one about the PM. That one kept me guessing. But the ending was once again, anticlimatic.

To paraphrase T S Elliott, this is the way the episode ends, not with a bang but a whimper.
