Fourth series of the same old shit. The Star Trek one was ok but I am not going beyond that.

That was f***ing mega creepy... I had nightmares after that... possibly because they used a British cast and the main character was scouse... it just seemed more real.

the scariest thing about that crocodile episode was the technology. I didn't really buy the character arc though.

Wish Id kept Crocodile on my not to watch list
As with quite a few of these, an interesting concept but badly executed. The run someone over on a lonely road starting point was a cliche I would have expected Brooker to avoid

Definitely not watching the Jodie Foster one

***spoiler***
You didn't buy the fact that a scouser could be such a selfish mass murderer ?

It seemed like she was normal at the start and then transformed into a psychopath

Scouser, always potential to be a psychopath

I thought the first one was great, and was trailered and introduced in such a way as to throw the viewer off. I thought the Arkangel one was great and I found her reaction far more believable considering how she was treated.
Crocodile I wasn't keen on. It was engaging but had a number of issues.
***spoiler***
As has been said, the stranger on the quiet road trope was a bit annoying, but then later it had the ridiculous technology. Seeing your memories? Come on. If that tech existed surely the best bet would be to shut the f*** up. The ex-alcoholic hadn't thought it through.
I also found the location jarring considering the British cast. I'm sure people will say it doesn't matter, but it's a bit bizarre to set it in mostly rural/remote Iceland and then have accents and ethnicity of the cast as diverse as you'd only find in big cities.
As for the ending, with the f***ing guinea pig, come on.

I actually agree about the location & accents. it was bugging me too. Was this supposed to be some alternate near future when the brits had 100% colonised iceland?
they tend to shoehorn english accents in too much imo.
