The episode required a lot of build-up until the frightening part began, but then the scares just started rolling in and things got pretty intense. I really liked the final twist, the analogy with Alzheimer's decease and, if the leading man was a touch more relatable, we would feel more sorry for him in the end. But overall a solid episode... I like when "Black Mirror" plunges into suspense/horror territory.
I think all of us knew - PLAYTEST is a social commentary of Virtual Reality (VR) technology. I must admit, PLAYTEST did a pretty good job. At first, I thought this episode is a sci-fi stuff. Then, I was quite surprised when PLAYTEST turned into a horror. This episode has an interesting concept. About how VR can affect human life and make them confused - can't choose which is real and which is fantasy. Worth watching.
E' partito molto bene, c'è anche un ottimo sviluppo, ma non fa abbastanza paura e il finale non mantiene il livello. Comunque, siamo seri, offrirsi volontario per provare uno sperimentale gioco horror? Ma vogliamo scherzare?
