Reflecting On A New Season Of Black Mirror

Recommended Posts

Oh, no denying there's racism but relating it to why people can't get laid denigrates the issue. Peace out.

oh, haha! That's fair, but also, you shouldn't take anything we say about Married At First Sight too seriously.

Listening now. Not sure I'd put that particular episode of Black Mirror last, but not sure where else I'd put it either. The first story-within-a-story was too "torture porn" for me, but I liked where the episode ended up. And @Sarah D. Bunting is right about about how gutpunch-y "monkey needs a hug" was :(

The guy who played the doctor in Black Museum was Daniel Lapaine, who was the hot South African guy that Toni Collette marries in Muriel's Wedding. I guess he's probably done some other work, but that's the most important credit in my mind.

I only recognized him as Rob's shitty friend on Catastrophe! Since Muriel's Wedding, his face has really...spread.

Yeah, I did not recognise him at all.

The Arkangel episode was shot in my neck of the woods, Hamilton, Ontario. Just thought you might want to know.

Pretty sure the past award for a Grossworth Equalizer Challenge sweep was double points.

It's double for winning the GEC unless you meant double THAT (4x). Maybe the answer is the friends we made along the way.

As to the title of the episode "Crocodile" - I suspect it's a reference to Captain Hook and the crocodile that follows him everywhere to get another bite of him? I could be wrong (I haven't watched that episode yet), but after listening to the podcast, that seems to make the most sense from the episode description, @Sarah D. Bunting. I may be wrong, but that was my first thought in listening!

All this "It's not the winning, it's the taking part" sounds damn un-American to me!

Crocodile tears, maybe?

I think this author of a Vox review of the episode has a nicely plausible guess (https://www.vox.com/culture/2017/12/29/16808458/black-mirror-crocodile-recap-season-4-review):

"But as in many of the series’ nightmarish episodes, “Crocodile” takes place in a near future in which we’ve finally figured out how to tap into, record, and even manipulate our memories. Crocodile cognition isn’t my particular specialty, but digging around a bit, I discovered that crocodile brains are apparently almost entirely limbic, which means they comprise the systems that house memories and the functions that support those memories, like smell and emotion."

This was my first impression on the title because the main character cries a lot but still keeps killing in a ruthless and cold manner.
