You can watch Black Mirror whenever you like in whatever order since each episode is self-contained, it's anthology series on the dark side of technology, how it changes our lives in many ways. I'd say watch Stranger Things with a sprinkle of BM or start BM after you finish ST (only eight episodes, like a prolonged movie).
Thanks! I think I'll start ST tonight. I didn't realize it was so short.

Neat, yeah, makes for a tighter experience. Enjoy the series and hop onto BM afterwards, it's all good stuff and you'll definitely be intrigued by many aspects of BM since you're alrady intrigued by Christine case.

My definitive ranking of the first 7 episodes of Charlie Booker's Black Mirror:
1) White Christmas
2) The Entire History of You*

3) Be Right Back
4) White Bear
5) 15 Million Merits
6) The National Anthem
7) The Waldo Moment
*I'd say a touch above the rest, Toby Kebbell and Jon Hamm were the best; although even the weakest episode, The Waldo Moment, is pretty good

Some of the deepest, thought provoking moments I've experienced watching a TV series. Bring on season three next month!

This series is straight up NolanFans stuff, I'm surprised we only have four pages so far, hopefully more will try it with this new season coming up on Netflix.

Well done boys. Cilogy, if you haven't already - Xmas episode with Jon Hamm is mandatory, Inception levels of brilliance.

I've only seen the first season and I enjoyed episodes 1 and 3 well enough I guess. Show is REALLY heavy handed though.
