Just noting it as a refreshing change.

A good story is a good story regardless of the gender of the lead.

Though I do tend to think you get a bit more variety with female leads; writers can be less inclined to have them punch their way out of trouble. By now we've seen that lots of times.

Loved 'Hang The DJ'.

I have 2 left to watch. Metal Head and Black Museum.

Watched Metalhead tonight.
Simple, but very effective.
Probably the least of the series so far but still very good.

In order for me:
Hang the Dj》》》》》》Metalhead 》》Callister》Black Museum》》》Arkangel》》》》》》》》》》》》Crocodile.

I actually still quite enjoyed the ones I didn't enjoy if that makes sense. Nice to see smartly written and very well acted and produced genre stuff.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

After a bit of time to digest the whole series, the episode I look back on in the season as my favourite is definitely Hang The DJ. Lovely story and didn't go in the direction I expected it to (possibly conditioned by the downbeat nature of Black Mirror endings I actually thought that the dating app would turn out to be a scam cover for a prostitution ring - at one point it made such a point of him being tied up in long stays while she was pretty much just being assigned one night stands constantly. I figured the guys were rich paying customers in on the scam who just wanting to 'rent' a willing woman. I think I just expected it to be unpleasant, and that was the most unpleasant twist I could think of! I'm glad that didn't turn out to be the case, and it was a rare instance of a really feel-good episode instead).

I enjoyed them all though, and thought Callister was a great romp and a really fun episode. I sometimes think Brooker's humor comes through a lot less in the last couple of series, with the exception of the occasional episode and Callister was one of those.

Just watched Callister. Worth thing about it: what happened to all the people stranded on planets? What happened to the Khan analogue?
