      Personally, I really enjoyed Bandersnatch as a one-off. Having the ability to choose what happens and trying to piece together the story by watching multiple endings.

      But honestly, the story fell quite flat and it wouldn't have been a very entertaining episode had it not been for the gimmick. But what do you guys think?

      Given our ongoing discussion of the Black Mirror series, I wanted to see if anyone here had watched the Electric Dreams series on Amazon.

      For those unaware, Electric Dreams is a sci-fi anthology series based on Philip K. Dick's short stories.
      Here is a short article on the show from The Verge - https://www.theverge.com/2018/1/15/16893038/amazon-video-electric-dreams-philip-k-dick

      So Tildes, what did you think about this show?

      I'm excited to discuss these episodes, see you on Friday!

      Edit: The rewatch announcement and schedule can be found here.

      I think Black Mirror is an important show tackling a lot of tough, and often overlooked subjects with technology, and I think that there should be an audience for it on Tildes.

      With that said, is there any interest in doing a rewatch and discussion on it? A discussion thread for each episode would be posted every few days, I’m thinking every 3, to give people enough time to watch the (sometimes quite long) episodes, as well as to not spam ~tv with too many threads.

      I think this could be fun and start some good discussion, but there would have to be a good amount of people participating. If you’re interested, please leave a vote/comment with any feedback. Thanks!
