Is there a consensus about Season 4? Everyone I know has been disappointed so far. I am only two eps in and they were meh.

Of course John Hillcoat would direct the most depressing episode of the most depressing series Iíve ever seen. I feel... I donít think.. yep.. I canít feel anything anymore.

Yeah, the credit at the end was both surprising and not at all shocking.

I don't know who the guy is, but I didn't find the episode all that depressing, just unremarkable.

...this Season there seems to be agreement on the two great ones and three not good ones with Black Museum in between.

I did watch USS Calister, which was pretty good. Reminds me that I never went back and watch the first two seasons of Black Mirror. Will 2018 be the year I finally watch all of Black Mirror? (Spoilers: Probably not.)

Season 4 so far:

Hang the DJ
USS Callister

Metalhead
Crocodile


With all the negative comments about this season I wonder if I should bother with the last two at all.

Also, some questions about the episodes:

Can someone explain the title Crocodile to me?
How can the app in DJ simulate personality so well?
There are like four episodes of BM that I have now seen that use the same little button to connect one's brain to some software. Is that a deliberate choice on their part?
USS Callister is fine, but memory from DNA, just, ugh...

Some good highs, not so many lows this season. Solid, but nothing extraordinary.
