7/10 Might not be the most original Black Mirror episode but it certainly was engaging throughout its entire run. The ending (after-credit) scenes actually are a pretty cool way to end the episode even it is seen as a fake-out.

7/10 Feels like a movie more than any other Black Mirror. The ending was cool but wasn't concluded in the most climactic or impactful way.

Votes: 48,526

7/10 Amazing world-building and visuals, missed out on the whole interesting plot thing. While the ending scene was good, the one before (the climax) was a big "ok??? and???" moment.

13. Black Mirror (2011– )
Episode: Metalhead (2017)

TV-MA | 41 min | Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller

In the post-apocalyptic landscape of the Scottish Moors, a woman attempts to survive the land full of "dogs."

Director: David Slade | Stars: Maxine Peake, Jake Davies, Clint Dyer

Votes: 31,992

6/10 Didn't feel like a Black Mirror episode, but that's ok, it's cool when they try new things. Great adrenaline-rush from beginning to end, decent ending, but not much else. The minimalist approach and vibe was a cool approach to take for a Black Mirror episode.

14. Black Mirror (2011– )

15. Black Mirror (2011– )
Episode: The Waldo Moment (2013)

TV-MA | 43 min | Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller

A failed comedian who voices a popular cartoon bear named Waldo finds himself mixing in politics when TV executives want Waldo to run for office.

Director: Bryn Higgins | Stars: Daniel Rigby, Chloe Pirrie, Jason Flemyng, Tobias Menzies

Votes: 33,885

6/10 Premise was kind of dumb but was interesting to see unfold. Waldo was written as the most unfunny character possible and while I know that was probably the point, it makes the whole episode parody level and unrealistic to see everybody laughing at it.

16. Black Mirror (2011– )
Episode: Crocodile (2017)

TV-MA | 59 min | Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller

A woman interviews various people using a device that allows her to access their memories.

Director: Owen Harris | Stars: Hayley Atwell, Domhnall Gleeson, Claire Keelan, Sinead Matthews

Votes: 40,397

5/10 Starts interesting, then it feels like it contradicts its whole technology. Once it shows all of its surprises, it doesn't quite know where to go. The dialogue was fun and nice to listen to.

18. Black Mirror (2011– )
Episode: The National Anthem (2011)

TV-MA | 44 min | Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller

4/10 After watching about the first 5 minutes, you know what to expect for the rest of the episode.

19. Black Mirror (2011– )
Episode: Striking Vipers (2019)

TV-MA | 61 min | Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller

Director: Owen Harris | Stars: Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff

Votes: 33,401

3/10 Reused plot devices and nothing to say. This episode was written like other episodes that focused on technology that "could" happen, except this time it made no sense why it would be implemented or how.

20. Black Mirror (2011– )
Episode: Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too (2019)

TV-MA | 67 min | Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller

Votes: 48,190

2/10 The most pointless and predictable episode of the entire show. Boring as hell.
