I think Black Mirror’s success is why I was so disappointed by both episodes in comparison. They didn’t bring anything new to the table, and they weren’t tense or eerie in the least.
As everyone has already mentioned, Comedian was too long and repetitive and downright predictable once the dog disappeared. And Nightmare didn’t have nearly the level of tension needed to make it interesting. I would have rather rewatched the original or movie versions. It’s a shame because I really liked Get Out and Us, and I know Jordan Peele can do better.
