Black Mirror: Striking Vipers ★★★½

It was... ok. The concept of the ultra-realistic VR game was lacking I won’t lie, especially as it had no relation to the plot. The plot itself was ok, the gay romance was what really kept me hooked however the resolution for me seemed to be a cop out. Overly sweet yet left a sense of dissatisfaction. The distinction made between Danny and Karl’s online and real life relationship was interesting but wasn’t fleshed out properly. Overall I have a lot of love for this episode as a part of the Black Mirror universe but it was really lacking for me and quite frankly I expected better. 

(cough cough this is what happens when you let americans take over good british concepts cough cough)
