Did You Know?


Although meant to represent a Californian beach town, San Junipero was actually shot in Cape Town, South Africa. As was another in Season 3, Black Mirror: Nosedive (2016)Black Mirror: Nosedive (2016). See more »


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 »

Watched it once, then immediately watched it again!

Are you like me? Someone now in their 40's or 50's who got the privilege of experiencing their teenage years in the 80's? Do you ever think back to those times and miss them? The music, the clubs, the fashion, the atmosphere. Did you also experience "the transition" at some point. From listening (and looking like) you listen to music like Duran Duran, Nik Kershaw and early Madonna, then suddenly discovering your gothyness. For me it happened when a friend took to me a secret goth club where membership was required, but you could bring a guest. I looked around: Every single surface painted black. No colored lights, only white dramatic spotlights shining down on gaunt, fluffy haired, black lipped goths with chiseled cheekbones encompassed in fog machine smoke. Striding about theatrically to the beat of the Cure and Bauhaus. I knew it, right there and then that I'd found my people. Anyhow, fast forward to tonight. I watched this episode of "Black Mirror" and woooooshhh!!! - it zapped me right back to those times. It even had a "transition" of sorts, as it started off with a disco playing Robbie Nevil and progressed to a more underground club with punks, goths and all sorts of riff raff, with the Pixies blasting away. I enjoyed the episode so much, that I re-watched it immediately. First time to immerse myself back into the 80's and second time to pay more attention to the wonderful story playing out. If you have a history like me, you will ADORE this episode. It will take you right out of this world and immerse you in another. Once you've seen the episode, you'll know what I mean!
