Future Titles:

"Not everything that isn't true is a lie."
"This is Infinity. That’s what we’re all inside. That’s where all of this exists."
"Tell no one. We are watching."
"We’re so out of our minds with desperation, we don’t know any better."
"Show us something real and free and beautiful. You couldn’t. Yeah? It’d break us. We’re too numb for it."
"You aren’t you, are you? You’re just a few ripples of you. There’s no history to you."
"It will be much easier if you just comply."
"There’s no cure for the Internet. It would never go away."
"I am sorry, but I miss the normal you. Before this obsession, when we had conversations, remember? "

You've seen all of season 1 right? A couple of my faves are Be Right Back and White Christmas. There are also the most famous eps San Junipero and USS Callister.

i woudlnt start with that one just because i think people would have too high expectations for the show. in that way i mean, a positive expectation lol.

i think 201 would be a great starting episode. or 103. or 301. something somewhat light but gives a glimpse into what the show is about.

then maybe go for something darker like shut up and dance 303 or men against fire 305 or white bear or playtest.

i would save 401 and 304 for later because those are the best.

Oh so you've seen USS Callister then. What did you think? Do you have a favourite from what you've watched?

Since I'm coming from the syfy fandom since I was a child I absolutly loved that episode. especially when the characters got a break and there wasn't any good and bad anymore a brilliant piece of work

and this one is up on top of my faves followed close by the one with the memories
