Makes sense. Charlie Brooker is a big retro computer fan. I haven't watched this yet, even though it was filmed in my home town.

Just finished watching this; very bizarre indeed, much like a lot of Black Mirror episodes

Seen all 4 seasons now, and to be honest, IMHO they're not great... but Metalhead was one episode that I really enjoyed

I read PC Zone from 1995 onwards (the natural successor to Zero, which covered the Amiga and ST) and boy, was that magazine ever such great fun, and Charlie Brooker was so prolific in it. He wrote countless funny articles, comments in reviews, and he even drew cartoons, including the infamous Cruelty Zoo which got an issue of the magazine pulled from shelves. And yes, I have that, it's really gory, funny, and will certainly annoy the Politically Correct crowd. All in all, he, and a few others, made this computer magazine iconic!
