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 »


In 1987, when Yorkie goes to the Quagmire, the Pixies song Something Against You is playing. The song wasn't released until 1988. However, San Junipero was not primarily intended to be scrupulously free of anachronisms; as a place where the elderly and dying can go to relive fond memories of their youth, recreating the overall look, sound and feel of the era would be much more important than making sure everything was pinpoint accurate.

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?

All the feels.

All the feels.

ALL of them.

Anything over than tears and cheering at the TV as Belinda Carlisle plays over the credits is evidence of some severe lack of emotional aspect.

This is not what I expected, not from Black Mirror, not from the tone of episodes 1-3 (and every episode from the earlier seasons). But Charlie Brooker has shown he can do more than creepy or scary or unease. This was ~EXPLETIVE~ beautiful. And somehow it fits. It works. I don't feel like I've been cheated by this Black Mirror episode. It makes the series feel more rounded, more whole. That glint of gold among the sand.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis are spectacular. The soundtrack is just perfect.

Just... just go watch it. Or re-watch it. I can't do justice to this episode, it is truly spectacular.
