Goofs

The town of San Junipero, while fictional, is based on the real Junípero Serra and is mispronounced. Many things are named for San Junípero in California, where the J is pronounced like an "H" as it is San Jose. See more »

A love story that transcends the ages, beautiful
22 February 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I had seen the astonishing reviews, and had very high expectations for this episode, and I was not disappointed. It was absorbing, engaging, emotional, beautifully acted, and had a very deep message about love. I do love a love story, but when it comes to Black Mirror I like the darker stories, I couldn't put San Junipero at the top of my list for that reason, but still it is a fabulous watch. The pacing and delivery of the story was amazing, you were slowly given what was going on, and the ending, once reached seemed inevitable. Beautifully acted, visually stunning, and as for that music! A true indication of how amazing music was back then, one of the reason why the Eighties has become such a fashionable era to visit. Bravo San Junipero.
