Maybe it's because I'm introverted, but I didn't think the punishment in White Christmas was that bad. I blur out people every day. lol

I kinda agree because these are some of my faves, also Nosedive, and of course, San Junipero, that episode might have a "good ending" but come on, it is powerful as well, I couldn't avoid crying the first time I watched it...

@BrainPilot It is!! I just love how lighthearted it is when compared to many other Black Mirror endings, and just how freeing and almost inspirational it is :)

Yeah, not 15 Million Merits isn’t included on this list is a sin. The glass scene is probably one of the best acted moments of the decade. Not to mention the thought provoking ending. This episode single handedly keeps me from watching any talent shows on TV anymore. It gave me a brand new perspective

In metalhead she killed herself because after she finally beat the robot it hit her with trackers and like 4 more were then headed straight for her. She barely escaped 1, so she knew she was toast within an hour. might as well go on her terms

in metalhead she didn't kill herself because she thought it was easier she did it because she realized that the only other option is being killed by this dog thing she had no choice since she was going to die anyway

White Christmas' ending hit me so hard I only watched it once and never tried again. I literally bawled my eyes out picturing just thinking of their punishment, it also doesn't help that I had a panic attack towards the end. I love this list.

The ending of White Christmas was, to me, the single most horrific fate I had ever seen followed immediately by the new single most horrific fate I had ever seen.

After seeing the end of White Bear I was just depressed about the episode. The thing that sucks is that with mob mentality, something like that could actually be passed.

Metalhead was cool. Just holding all that make us human. Risking their lives for a teddy bear. Just because it makes them feel real.

I agree with your last 3 choices but I would’ve replaced the other 2 with “Playtest” and “Crocodile.” Both we’re dark and shocking.

Far as powerful endings go, I'll agree with Shut Up and Dance, and I'll add Playtest, Nosedive, USS Callister, & Men Against Fire.

Playtest really hit me the hardest, mainly because I relate to the character's personality and have the same situation with him and his mom and even dress the same, Cooper Redfield didn't deserve the ending he got, innocent man

i loved the national anthem a lot personally because it was so grounded in present day reality. and because it forces the viewer to look at themselves. in the end when the prime minster goes through with the horrendous act, people are seen making an event out of it, cheering and so forth. but even though it’s disgusting, they can’t look away. meanwhile the princess has already been released with all ten fingers a half hour early, and her captor already dead. if everyone hadn’t been engrossed in the viewing of the prime minister on live tv, someone would’ve surely noticed the princess and alerted the government at once. it struck a chord with me because it made me realize that if something like that were to happen in our society, we would 100 percent be exactly the same way. it was a super powerful episode, really up there for me personally

I don’t like the ending of White Christmas cause I felt the punishment for his character was way too harsh. He was a butthole for sure and definitely deserved time for what he did, but isolating him from human beings FOREVER is cruel and unusual. People go mad just being in solitary confinement. But his sentence is worse because everyone else can see him as a red blob so they automatically avoid him. He will be denied food, shelter, and any human interaction until he dies. Not only did he never physically hurt anyone, he also helped the police and most likely could’ve continued to be an asset.

I don’t understand the hate for Metalhead. I liked the risks it took and it was shot beautifully. I think it’s only real problem for people is it didn’t seem to have a lot of stakes or reasons to root for the character. I think that actually sets it apart from most stories of people being hunted in post apocalyptic settings, but people cannot get behind characters they don’t care about and when your cast is only one person for the vast majority of the run time people want someone interesting to watch and who they care for so their survival means more. And when you strip away color, dialogue, and an ensemble your audience is gonna zero in on what’s left more critically. But I don’t think it made the episode the worst or unwatchable in the slightest. Everything else is up to par as far as film making and acting goes. The writing isn’t necessarily bad either, just lackluster. This episode is better than every episode in season 5 by far. And before that it definitely wasn’t the worst (that goes to the bee episode for me, I felt like I was watching a subpar episode of law and order).

In the metalhead episode, she had a tracker in her neck, she can't dig it out with a knife obviously, and leaving it means the dogs will hunt her so she had no choice once she saw it was in her neck.

I'm sad that no one talk about National Anthem. Yes the scenario is a little bit creepy, but i found the ending when you see the princess released event before the "event" goes live and you see her alone in the street while everybody is focused on the televisionreally mind blowing. Arkangel is also a very good episode imho

I think what was even bleaker than Bella realizing one of the tracking devices had ended up in her neck and getting it out would mean killing herself (which she, of course, did) was learning that the ENTIRE THING, all of the fighting against the 'dogs' who were known killers, all of the trickery and anxiety and everything... was for a teddy bear for her sister's son. For a teddy bear. That showed amazing characterization and made the ending so much more impactful. Anyway, I definitely agree that that was one of the most powerful endings, but I probably would've replaced one of the endings you listed (probably 'The Entire History of You' - wasn't very into it) with 'Nosedive'.

the ending of shut up and dance is one of the greatest uses of music in tv i’ve ever seen. the twist of the episode itself is great but the use of exit music (for a film) by radiohead adds the emotional weight that makes it so unforgettable. i have that song downloaded and i can’t listen to it without hearing “they’re kids, kenny! kids!”

White Bear is super underrated imo. Literally I was SHOOK after the ending of it. I feel like it really showed how messed up is normal human beings can be for entertainment.
Chell 12 days ago
I mean, it's not quite watching a human burned alive or have their entrails pulled out by a winch... I found myself thinking that the punishment in the episode would actually be a good punishment for those who inflict terror on others. You inflict terror on others, you deserve to know what terror is. If they had opted to make her crime less than what it was, then I'd be with everyone else thinking it's too far. But no, she murdered a little girl with her boyfriend for pleasure... ...that deserves hard measures to force perspective. You could argue that wiping her everyday is too much, as she'll never be able to reflect on the terror she caused that little girl - she'll only ever know her own terror. But then, it could be counter argued that justice systems aren't meant just for the perpetrator - we used to watch entrails be pulled out by winches because we used to think it would discourage further incidents (which is moot, but if I keep arguing with myself this post will be even tl:dr than it already it is.)

I did a quick calculation and if the police left the cookie on 1000 years per minute for Christmas Eve night, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, then that means he would have had to listened to 'I wish it could be Christmas' for 3.6 million years. Now that's a sentence!

I honestly don't understand how anybody thought it was a twist ending in Shut Up and Dance. The moment I saw him interact with the child compared to his interactions with the adult I had a feeling he was a paedophile and that suspicion was ramped up to a point of almost certainty considering how far he went. I didn't understand it was supposed to be a "twist ending" until watching videos like these, to me the ending was just outright confirmation of what the audience was supposed to have suspected the whole time. I honestly thought it may have even been a better ending to not come right out and say it, which is how I expected the episode to end, because it would leave that wiggle room for doubt that keeps you from saying I'm one hundred percent certain he's a paedophile and having no empathy for him as you think just maybe he is a regular teenager going this far to keep a masturbation video private as being a teenager and thinking the world would end over something that is embarrassing but ultimately not even that serious is something almost all of us have experienced. I know I'm in the minority here but that is one of the episodes where I thought the ending could have been better. I do see how if you didn't suspect from the start how you see it as a Sixth Sense level twist ending, personally though as someone who did suspect all along, an ambiguous ending would still have me debating to this day whether or not my suspicions were correct like I have done with other episodes and movies pretty much leave it up to each viewer to decide for themselves what really happened.

My advice to Corey Booker, please no more American Based Black Mirror. I am an American but nobody does bleak, dystopian future quite like the Brits. All the mind f**kd endings were the Bristish Ones. and this past season my goodness lets just scrap it and pretend it didn't happen.

You find out a LOT earlier than the end phone call he’s a nasty fucker. It’s black mirror. Question everything. Opening shot is him being friendly to a child, focusing on the child’s interaction rather than the parent. He is then scared when his sister takes the laptop. He becomes increasingly paranoid after the older guy says “they’re only pictures of you doing something everyone does” then finally the guy he has to fight says very clearly “mine were only pics too... how young were they”.
