Discuss Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

I looped multiple times and ended up with three as I recall, the third forcing me out. This ending meta and deterministic premise is what grew on me. When I first started I found the "choice" thing tedious, but by the third ending, I was literally laughing out loud. Well done. While my guess is this will be a one-off quirk (hard to repeat with value), the ambition and execution is admirable.

Agreed. I had fun with it. I think I got 3 or 4 different endings before it made the credits roll. Part of me wants to try it again and make different choices when I watch it the second time.

I actually got the "fairy tale" ending at first, and the credits did roll with an option to "exit to the credits" as I recall, the timer counted down and it looped me back in to the "choice." From there it got really fun. Even that first ending, though, was beautiful in a different way. I can't say enough how well they did in executing this premise.
