    Eh, I just figured that dreaming powers are mental powers, and Nia's brain has always been female.

    S01.E11: Witch Perfect

    The show's still throwing too much at us (we just found out that Macy and Maggie are the full sisters, and now we find out Macy's essentially a zombie, too?), but this episode was much tighter than usual. The plots were well-connected -- Maggie was upset at her audition because of Macy's announcement, which is what led the Maestro to choose her to sing the dissonant (and very on-the-nose) "Killing Me Softly," and the sisters couldn't stop him until they'd all worked out their differences, leading to Maggie wanting to learn more about their parents from Macy. It worked. Still not loving Galvin as a romantic interest, but I agree that he's fun as the friend who just gets super excited about magic. Glad to see Lucy not actively hating Maggie, although the way the actress plays that girl, I always doubt her sincerity. Jada's interesting but I don't know her well enough yet to have an opinion on her as a romantic interest. I enjoyed Jaime Camil as the Maestro. The Harry stuff was the only part that fell flat for me. It's too early in the show's run for us to really care that the sisters could lose their whitelighter. All in all, though, while this wasn't perfect, I think it was my favorite episode yet.

    There's not a dud in the bunch! I think Sister Michael is my favorite character; she certainly got a lot of the lines that made me laugh out loud.

    From here. I watched this series yesterday -- it's only six ~22-minute episodes, so it's a quick binge-watch -- and it was hilarious and surprising and somehow mean and sweet at the same time. I was glad to hear that a second season is on the way!

    S05.E00: Bandersnatch

    There are links to a bunch of flowcharts here, if you want to try triggering all the endings: https://www.polygon.com/2018/12/29/18159525/black-mirror-bandersnatch-all-endings-guide-netflix I think my favorite is still the Netflix ending(s), although the train ending is the most fitting (and arguably the happiest, as it lets Stefan undo his greatest regret).

    S05.E00: Bandersnatch

    I've gotten one of the five endings so far, a "happy" one! It's such a cool experience. The action doesn't even pause as you make decisions; it's super smooth. You can "lose" multiple times but keep going, as it's sort of a time travel story, and sometimes the decision trees change based on stuff you've learned/experienced in the different branches. At one point I made it go super weird and meta (without getting spoilery, "Netflix" is one of the decision tree options!), but I suspect it can get even crazier. Gonna play around with it more tonight. The amount of work (including programming) that went into this is impressive.

    This sounds so good. "It took 35 days to shoot Bandersnatch, and it takes approximately 90 minutes to get through one story iteration. There are five main endings with multiple variants of each, replete with Easter eggs throughout." "Given the mind-boggling number of possible choices, there are more than a trillion unique permutations of Bandersnatch." "The creators of this episode say choices come, on average, every 1.5 minutes." "This is a foray into a new world, and each person’s experience with Bandersnatchwill be different. Disparate outcomes, feelings and connections are to be expected. As a part of the story, you can choose what breakfast cereal Stefan eats in the morning, or what music he listens to on the bus. On the heavier side, you have to make weighted, more serious choices that you probably don’t want to make, but you have to for the story to continue. One thing’s for sure, it is very immersive, and a first run-through is exhilarating."
