This viewing experience finally undid for me what I have long suspected to be a meaningless platitude: the idea that art promotes empathy.

Netflix Sued for Trademark Infringement Over Bandersnatch | TV News | Consequence of Sound
The two-option menu on the interactive movie's interface may be legally protected
Last month, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch took up the entire weekend for people around the world. Viewers spent hours attempting to work their way through the episodic film’s twists and turns en route to whatever ending they wanted most — or at least to the most endings. The project adopted the popular “choose your own adventure” structure of so many ’80s and ’90s kid novels in an attempt to comment on the ways in which our pop culture is as much built around the illusion of choice as anything else. However, as it turns out, that creative release device may prove expensive for Netflix.
Chooseco, LLC, the company which owns the copyright for the specific “Choose Your Own Adventure” brand, alleges in its lawsuit that Netflix attempted to solicit a license for the property as far back as 2016. In the filing, Chooseco alleges that “Chooseco and Netflix engaged in extensive negotiations that were ongoing for a number of years, but Netflix did not receive a license… On at least one occasion before the release of Bandersnatch, Chooseco sent a written cease and desist request to Netflix asking Netflix to stop using the CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE mark in connection with its marketing efforts for another television program”.

bandersnatch reviews - Google Search
It takes you down various paths that are either boring as sin or bat-sh** crazy and make zero sense. It throws enough interesting ideas at you to keep you compelled for an hour, but then you either pick the wrong option and end up with a boring ending so you're told to rewind to a previous choice and try again, or it goes completely off the rails and has you crawling through mirrors to change the past which usually just ends in someone dying and the only payoff being how that death affected the reviews of this guys video game.

All the while it becomes abundantly clear that the story doesnt actually matter and being constantly slapped in the face with "control is an illusion" is supposed to give you some kind of existential awakening so you can marvel at how "deep" the message is.

Its cr*p. Bring on Season 5.

Bandersnatch is a Pirate Hit Without Interactivity, But They're Missing Out - TorrentFreak
Everyone seems to be talking about Bandersnatch, the supposedly groundbreaking new installment of the Black Mirror series. One of the big questions is whether the format poses a big challenge for pirates to replicate. With a torrent of the straight play-through already doing 'well' on torrent sites, the next big question is whether a truly interactive version will appear.
Warning: This may contain spoilers.
As a huge Black Mirror fan, I was excited – extremely excited – to learn that Netflix would be presenting the latest installment of the series at the end of December.
Right on cue, Bandersnatch hit the streaming service and within minutes I’d left the office for the comfort of the living room. Firing it up on my four-year-old LG smart TV I was immediately frustrated. According to the video that began to play, my TV is too old and outdated to play the promised interactive feast.

Bandersnatch: The spoiler-filled, choose-your-own-opinion review | Ars Technica
This review's structure was inspired by Netflix's solid rewind-and-try-again film.
After catching up on post-holiday news and emails, Ars staffers got together in our staff chat room to talk about Netflix's weirdest one-off film yet: Bandersnatch, the Black Mirror "event" that launched on December 28. We'd all seen it, some alone and others in groups, and we all felt a mix of delight, confusion, and annoyance by the fact that it required us to grab our remotes and make choices throughout its 90-minute runtime. (Each choice leads to varying outcomes that range from minor to severe.)
Thanks to its interactive portions, we feel this Black Mirror film really is in the eye of its beholder, so we're leaning into its "choose your own adventure" qualities and letting you do something similar with our review. Which opinion outcome would you like? The choice is yours... or maybe you have no choice. (Meaning, it's a lot like Bandersnatch.)
Be warned: the reviews go in order of spoilers, from least to most. If you know nothing about Bandersnatch, stop after reading our first blurb, which is more explanatory. If you'd like to pick Bandersnatch's mechanics and qualities apart a bit more, keep going.
