If I recall his bill was only something like $34. Is $3.40 really that much to continue living?
Yeah, it became clear to me quite early on that the episode cyber-torment would not end until Mulder gave them their tip.
Damn, that's a bargain. Blobfish can't be cheap, and that includes Scully's meal too!
Season 1 episode 1 of Black Mirror is a very off putting as there is a gross sexual aspect to the plot (however ended up being a little on the nose if you followed tending news at the time of it's release). I almost didn't continue with the series after it. The first two seasons are very British, and not the biggest budgets. I still very much enjoyed the rest of the series.
Netflix bought it after season 2. Still British, but not as much. Bigger budgets.
As if The Twilight Zone was the first such anthology series...
A List of 50 TV Shows Related to the Twilight Zone (aka Horror/Sci-Fi Anthology Series etc) - IMDb
But it's the one that defines the genre...as the list you cite makes clear in its title!
Of the 50, only 4 produced before TWZ, of which 2 are SciFi
(and Black Mirror not on list?)
I'm pretty sure the bill was $55 and change.
The constant begging for a tip was like the cyber version of the paperboy from "Better Off Dead."
I must have fallen asleep at the very end and now I just checked on my TiVo and it got erased overnight. I saw up until they got cornered by the robot dogs and Mulder punched the 10% button. Don't think I saw what happened after that. I think there were only a couple minutes left at that point. Can anyone fill me in?
Next scene as I recall has our couple at a counter in a diner with a human waitress serving "normal" food and pouring coffee, human patrons around them, something about paying in cash (and/or leaving a cash tip, i forget) and Scully about to start reading her phone's news feed. She puts down the phone and puts her hand on Fox's hand. They make eye contact. (The obvious moral of the story descends like a wet blanket.)
My puzzle/cipher geek friend was compelled to convert the episode title, of course. He asked me why it was called "Followers" and I really didn't have a good answer. The name of the robo-sushi restaurant was "Follower" -- in Japanese katakana "fo ro wah" phonetically, i think. I still have no good answer for him.
“Follower” likely ties into the whole social media cyber theme. It could also be because the AI is following what people do, though I don’t know of any sushi chef that will hunt you down and try to kill you if you don’t leave a tip.
You mean any human sushi chef.
They're all sheeple! SHEEPLE, I TELL YOU!!!
Actually, I'd be more worried about the human variety...
Yes, but the bot will find you. That’s what it does! That’s ALL it does! You can’t stop it! It’ll reach down your throat and pull out your credit card. The hard way!
