Goofs

Yorkie is seen driving a Mazda MX-5/Miata in San Junipero. The Miata wasn't available until 1989, however there's no reason to think she hasn't decided to change the period she's experiencing to 1989 rather than 1987, not to mention the fact that the simulation isn't 100% accurate. See more »

Quotes

Kelly: 49 years. I was with him for 49 years. You can't begin to imagine. You can't know the bond, the commitment, the boredom, the yearning, the laughter, the love of it. The fucking love. You just cannot know! Everything we sacrificed. The years I gave him. The years he gave me. Did you think to ask?

A love story that transcends the ages, beautiful
22 February 2018 | by Paul EvansSee 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.
