    like... throwing out this one:
    Arthur and the Minimoys (2006)


    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...

    i did, watched complete S01 and one episode from S02, fast forwarded the rest of S02

    can't say it was impressive in any particular way, S01E01 and S02E03 were rather weird too, the description on imdb says that it 'shows the dark side of life and technology' but i got the impression they were actually promoting these future areas of technology and the related products - some mentioned similarities with 'the twilight zone', which work only when a particular twist occurs, which are often very unconvincing

    this show is from 2011, how come the hype arose so late in 2017?

    Spoiler quick walkthrough with a few comments:

    S01 E01 The National Anthem - the pig stuff? unrealistic and silly, features hunting down youtube uploaders, censorship, etc.
    S01 E02 Fifteen Million Merits - bad acting, retarded tv shows and animations, unbelievable twist, features reality show entertainment, living for your 5 min. of tv glory
    S01 E03 The Entire History of You - annoying drama and bad relationships, features chip implants, augmented senses

    S02 E01 Be Right Back - supposedly women just love their replicants, unless they cannot fake important things like crying, features cloning and using online available data for personality reconstruction
    S02 E02 White Bear - uninteresting amnesia, masked zombie hunters/photographers
    S02 E03 The Waldo Moment - the waldo show, really?
    S02 E04 White Christmas - too far fetched in its solutions, although it would be very interesting to some, like the law enforcement, features cloning of one's consciousness (lol) into a mini-me version

    As someone who just recently discovered Black Mirror I'd like to give this thread a little push. It's become an instant classic series for me.

    That show also came up at our post-Christmas-dinner "what are you watching now"

    If I understood this right, each episode has its own story, actors... so quality may vary.

    But, it's definitely on my list of show to watch on NF.
