Is The Netflix Interactive Special 'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch' The Future of TV?

Patiently waiting for endless hours watching your favorite movie or series just to figure out your favorite character doesn't even make it to the end. Disappointing, Frustrating and Infuriating right!?

So let's take it this way. What would you do if the fate of your character was on your hands?

Thousands of thoughts could be running wild inside your head right now. But Netflix is here with Interactive Special Black Mirror: Bandersnatch to answer all your queries with an option to generate personalized feature movie out of the options you choose from. Now, if your character dies then the blame is on you.

Stefan Butler, the movie protagonist is an aspiring video game programmer who starts his morning with a bowl of Frosted Flakes or Sugar Puffs. Whichever you prefer.

Bandersnatch presents users with two options at any given moment. In the interactive movie, Stefan’s choices about everything from breakfast to whether to jump off a balcony or not, lie in the hands of the viewer.

It’s the kind of choice that is normally left to the director. By putting it in an audience’s hand, Netflix is not just inviting viewers to participate in creating the tone of a scene, but also asking viewers to pick one product over another. Netflix, however, takes over, choosing automatically if you don’t make a decision.
