    You seem to be confused as to what the word “most” means.

    I don't understand. Did I reach the actual ending? I ended up being in a set acting out a scene with the therapist lady and then bam the credits. That was really short.

    Damn... i didn't get the spoilered ending. Got five of them and gave up.

    I gotta give Charlie Booker geek cred for trying the choose your own adventure gimmick. The story wasn't great but was still interesting to me.

    Recommend following your coworker when given the choice.

    Is lazy that I haven’t watched this because I don’t want to bother with making decisions just to make the movie work?

    There is this movie, The Bandersnatch. Then Netflix will release season 5 at sometime. Season 5 was delayed because this damn choose-your-own-adventure movie with a million outcomes was so difficult to make.

    If you're doing this on a smart tv, recommend fast forwarding to the choices after a run or two.

    I gave it another go yesterday and I've gotten all the 5 endings. I doubt I've gotten through all the permutations but I still think it's an interesting concept and they pull it off fairly well.

    I really enjoyed the little Easter Eggs here and there, I particularly enjoyed the concept of us being the White Bear audience torturing him over and over again along with all the themes of free will....

    I love Black Mirror the series and the idea behind this movie sounds great but sometimes, especially after work, I just don't have the energy to do anything. I'll watch it one day though. I've heard mixed reviews so I don't have high expectations for it.

    Watched this today before the debacle. If you want to see all of the endings (for the most part) this one is for you. Sadly I'd already seen all of the endings, so the Easter egg was a complete waste of my time.

    But I do recommend watching it with the prompts in the post for the full effect of this.

    Careful now.

    Netflix's 'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch' Leads to "Choose Your Own Adventure" Trademark Lawsuit

    The plaintiff says that 20th Century Fox currently holds an options contract to develop an interactive series based on the Choose Your Own Adventure series, and that beginning in 2016, Netflix actively pursued a license.

    "Chooseco and Netflix engaged in extensive negotiations that were ongoing for a number of years, but Netflix did not receive a license," states the complaint. "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."

    Chooseco alleges that Netflix is benefitting from an association with its iconic brand, and that Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, which allows audiences to select the direction of the plot, has been widely discussed in the press as being connected to the phrase, "Choose Your Own Adventure."

    Additionally, Chooseco points in the complaint (read here) to one scene where Stefan Butler, the main character, is preparing to pitch a video game he wishes to develop. He's explaining to his father that the game is based on the work of a fictional book. The father says the author must be good because his son is always "flicking backwards and forwards."

    Butler responds, "No, it's a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' book."

    Sounds like they have a good case to me. Hope they win, those books were badass.
