SPOILERS!!!!!!


For a 3 year old TV show lol..


So just started Black Mirror and it is good!!!

Well the first episode involves the princess of Whales, a very popular fictional teen who is hugely popular and loved across the UK, being kidnapped.

The kidnappers say they will murder the princess if their demands are not met..

Well the demand is that the Prime Minister has FULL intercourse with a 300lb female pig..TO COMPLETION ON NATIONAL TELEVISION, ON EVERY CHANNEL!!

The show was shocking.. obviously...

But it makes you wonder, what would our last few presidents do in that same situation, but let’s trade the random monach with their own daughters...


1) Trump with Ivanka being held hostage..

2) Obama and Sasha

3) W. Bush and Jenna..

4) Bill and Chealsea

5) Bush Sr and Jeb.. not sure if he had a daughter.. if so replace Jeb...



So who bangs the pig on TV and who lets their kid die???

What would you do if it was your kid???



Talk about a crazy choice!!

I would have done it to save my daughter.. without a lot of hesitation.

DAMN!!


From the new topics page I thought NetFlix did a huge dump and released the next 7 seasons.....Bummer.

Binged season 4 a few days ago, was great but I didn't think it was as dark as the first few seasons.

More "happy endings" than I expected....

Loved the starship captain episode..

Though really I’m not sure he was a villian..

The “digital clones were not real.. if anything it was basically your friends toaster killing you lol.”

Loved the fact the next captain was hinted at being worse.. lol

Man that episode was the most messed up thing I've seen in awhile. I wouldn't be willing to do it.

Didn't ex PM David Cameron had a sexual innuendo with a pig head in college? Can't recall where I read that though... and blackmail was not the reason

Any "real man" with honor would do it; even the politicians even though they don't know the world "honor." I would guess all the mentioned would do it knowing, because they're all politicians, they would receive great applause and admiration for the sacrifice.

I know they need to fix the characters in the new threads feed already. It totally messes up thread title showmanship like every other thread.

I agree with you. I like shows who challenge the viewer like Electric Dreams,Black Mirror and Dimension 404 because they rarely have a happy ending. The episode Crocodile wasn't even that blackmirrorish and i don't know if it was intentional but the episode was hilarious. Metalhead felt like an after thought. Maxine Peake did a very good acting job but i wished they explained more about the world and what those dogs were. Arkangel was fine. Hang the DJ was way too predictable but okay. Black Museum was pretty entertaining but also a little bit too predictable in the end. It was a nice touch that they confirmed the San Junipero happy ending and that Yorkie and Kelly made the right choice. Most of the new episodes happened in the same universe and i kinda liked this conclusion but i want some more f#cked up sh!t in the future.

IDK....at least about the admiration..

I think it is fair to say we hope almost anyone would act if their child was at risk..but maybe not..
