Did You Know?


Very early on in the episode we see Mackenzie Davis playing coin-op video games in the eighties which the she is also seen doing in the beginning of series Halt and Catch Fire (2014). See more »


There are several scenes that show elder Kelly wistfully looking out from her nursing home at what looks an awful lot like the ocean by her house in San Junipero. Since her nursing home is in Carson City, Nevada- which has no coastline- this is impossible. However, it is very likely that Kelly's view was never intended to be that of an ocean, as Nevada's capital sits on the shores of another large body of water- Lake Tahoe. See more »


Kelly: Why the glasses?
Yorkie: Um...
Kelly: I like them. They totally work on you. But do you need them?
Yorkie: Yeah, the lenses don't do anything.
Kelly: Knew it!
Yorkie: I used to wear them in school, so I guess now they're just kind of a... comfort thing.
Kelly: I figured they were kind of a fashion statement.
Yorkie: Really?
Kelly: But the rest of your outfit is not. Don't take that wrong. It's refreshing. I mean, look around. People try so hard to look how they think they should look. They probably saw it in some movie.

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.
