You are just remembering them too fondly.

I actually rewatched them just to compare this season's episodes better and rank them properly. This season actually stood out very well. Better than most of the previous 7 episodes.

My rankings are a few posts above.

I think the episodes lacked the subtlety of previous seasons. They made the season with an American audience with mind.

I agree with James. I think White Christmas skewed our expectations a bit.

Was White Christmas really that good again?

I remember Be Right Back, White Bear & The National Anthem, The Entire History of You more fondly.

But yea this season hasn't been poor in comparison really. Everything has been better than Fifteen Million Merits and The Waldo Moment. Still one more episode for me to go in the latest season

I highly recommend re-watching White Christmas, White Bear, and The Entire History of You.

Some of your opinions will change (like WB which doesn't hold up well at all on a rewatch) and others will get reaffirmed (like WC being so good).

Yes, I think M99 got it right.

It just lacked something new, it wasn't that original for me as it was before, even though production levels raised a bit.

Rewatching in this aspect, is useless. It's about the feeling it gave me the first time, and I was more impressed with the earlier work.

But we're just being spoiled here. It is still a must watch.

I think the issue is that they moved from 42 min episodes to 60 min ones because Netflix. Before the episodes felt more compact, whereas now the exposition explaining the idea takes too long, making the episodes drag a bit, which makes them less powerful.

Like if you take San Junipero it takes 30 minutes for them to stop teasing with the midnight thing and get them to the premise of the episode, it could have been much quicker. Or in the last episode they could have skipped all the PM scenes and done it at 80 minutes instead of 90, which is still crazy long.

Just finished the last episode. Great season again overall I would say. The last two episode won it over for me. My ratings for Black Mirror episodes always seem to be quite the other way around from you guys on here. Anyway, these are my ratings:

Shut Up and Dance: 9.4
Hated in the Nation: 8.9
Men Against Fire: 8.7
Nosedive: 8.7
Playtest: 8.5
San Junipero: 8.2

Gotta say the most impressive thing was the cinematography. They always have the tone right in terms of location, colour schemes and music.
