Black Wednesday

We're finally getting the fifth season of Black Mirror, dropping on Netflix today. Season four came out in late 2017.  Since then, Black Mirror released "Bandersnatch," which, while part of season five, I guess, is its own thing.

"Bandersnatch" is an interactive episode, so the show had to film hours of scenes to fit all the paths the viewer might take.  In other words, it was the equivalent of shooting three episodes.  Which may explain why, though Black Mirror has offered six episodes per Netflix season in the past, only three more are being made available today.

They will be:

--"Smithereens," starring Topher Grace

--"Rachel, Jack And Ashley Too" starring Miley Cyrus

--"Striking Vipers" starring Anthony Mackie.

I've seen the trailer, which doesn't give away too much.  As always, they seem to be sci-fi horror tales set in the near future which artificial intelligence playing a large role.  I know what I'll be doing the next few days.
