Anyone else watched the Black Mirror interactive episode Bandersnatch that has just come on Netflix?  - gives the viewer options to take different scenarios throughout with different outcomes.
An interesting idea although you always feel you're missing something by taking a particular path although at times you do get a chance to re-visit your choices......


Our “Smart” TV is five years old and apparently not Smart enough to support the interactive feature. It’ll work on our iPad but I’m not minded to watch feature-length stuff on a screen that’s about 15 times smaller.  :-\

Enjoyed the novelty of it but one is enough. I did love the return to spectrum computing which bought back great memories of jet set willey.
Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.

I think I watched the first 2 or 3 of the first series.  Thought it was pretty awful...reminded me of Tales of the Unexpected from the 1980’s which I also hated....

I'm in the same boat with a 3 year old "smart" tv.


Could you not link it to your tv with a hdmi cable or cast it?
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

Actually, now you mention that  I’m pretty sure that’s possible - there’s a Screen Mirroring facility on the 55” which should work, so I’ll try that when the opportunity arises.  Good shout, cheers. :)

Not seen it, but have seen the hype; then I saw the word "Bandersnatch". This is a name of an infamous lost Sinclair spectrum never released game. Is there some relation? Seems like there is.


Never played Jet Set Willy, more of a Nodes of Yesod person.

The story is based around a video game in the 80's.....so I guess there could be a tip on the hat to a game that never existed - I am not aware of this connection though, never really progressed beyond Space Invaders myself  ;D
