What about the greatest Easter egg which is the reference to a novel of Philip K Dick? It's a poster in Colin's apartment. The novel is Ubik. And why is the greatest? Because basically the episode was clearly inspired by many Philip K Dick novels and concepts. Great episode. Best easter egg ever.

I think these are more than Easter eggs. The explanation of the white bear symbol may show that skillane thought she would be able to start again (which she technically did) and it also shows metalhead was not real and just a game

Something that I noticed.... if you ever saw “White Christmas” in season 2, Joe’s baby mother (the lady that blocked him) died in a train accident similar way as Stefan’s mother’s death. It’s just a coincidence how they both were both mothers and both died through train accidents. If you don’t know what I’m talking about watch that episode ASAP “White Christmas”

I liked it at first, but the novelty wore off when I came to the end credits too quickly. It was a decent idea and I loved the music, but I didn't really like that there was only one "real" ending that resulted in the start of the end credits. That said, I thought it was a bit clever to have the option to go back and re-choose all the other decisions because it suited the themes within the story. So my feelings are mixed.

The Playtest Easter egg is not foreshadowing or pre-planning for the Bandersnatch episode at all. Bandersnatch was a real game in development by Imagine Software along with a second game. These two games was also the ones that eventually buried the company due to spiralling costs and the fact they just couldn't get them to work. Also note of the cover of Edge magazine the name Psyclapse, which was the other game Imagine were working on. In fact all of the games on the magazine are unreleased games. It was an in-joke for those that spotted it.

I know two Easter eggs that don't relate to Black Mirror episodes that you may find interesting. 1) The movie is set in 1984. This is most likely a tribute to the book 1984 by George Orwell. The book details a dystopian future where people are watched and, thus, mind controlled and scrutinized constantly. Mind control is a big theme in the movie. 2) There is one part where Mr. Thakur says something to Colin along the lines of, "Alright alright Leary." And Colin responds, "It's Huxley, not Leary." Colin is referring to the author Aldous Huxley who wrote Brave New World. This book is also about dystopian future where people are controlled by the government through manipulation of desires. There is a lot that they did in the movie to emphasize the theme of control/mind control and reality. It's brilliant.

2) Actually they are talking about the book 'Doors of Perception', which Thakur thinks is by Leary but its actually by Huxley as Colin corrects him. In the book Huxley is describing his psychedelic experiences with mescalin which is a foreshadow to the use of psychedelics seen later.

They aren’t Easter eggs! They are to save money and time for IP clearance. Charlie Brooker explained is easier to use their own IP in creating the necessary background filler content. Using their own IP means it costs them nothing and makes creating the extensive background filler world far, far easier. Like dead easy. Otherwise they would have to pay to use other brands and take more time. As he explains each episode Is effectively a feature film, and costs had to be kept down. So technically and factually none of these are Easter eggs in black mirror, it’s a pure necessity. For greater info watch the fact fiend episode on. Hot fuzz. They had so much pain is clearing simple things like dvds in the background it nearly brought the whole film down. Putting stuff in the background is a royal pain in the ass, and not worth the money and effort, it’s far simpler, faster and cheaper to use your own IP.

I don't know but I prefer to think it's creating a bit of a world. There are loads of things they would have had to either get a legal agreement or spend on to use. ZX Spectrum, Wimpy, WH Smiths, Cadbury's, Quaker Oats. I reckon Black Mirror caries enough weight it can ask to use brands. I don't think it's product placement either. Just my opinion. I'm not sure though I'll think on it whilst I finish my lion bar, sugar puffs then drive to the high street in my C5 for a magazine and a Knickerbocker Glory then back home in time for Manic Miner having loaded. :)

+Hanniffy Dinn Jesus fucking Christ dude, I bet you are going to say that the totally unnecessary ending cutscene with the noise that can be deciphered into a QR code for a secret website is also not an Easter egg? How much mental gymnastics do you have to do to believe your own bullshit? I understand saying METL HEDD and NOHZDYVE aren't Easter eggs because they needed a name and concept for the games so they used their own IP's, or how the symbol for white bear was used, but there are definitely easter eggs in the movie. Like someone else said, they could have easily put non-descript things on these pages and a lot of them were only on screen for a second or two. They did it for people who would actually pause the movie and look hard for them, so they are easter eggs. You try and say that because they are in plain sight that they aren't Easter eggs, except they aren't in 'plain sight'. A lot of it is stuff that like I said is only on screen for a second and is in small text. Literally nobody watching the movie the first time would ever catch the headlines on the newspaper without pausing the movie.

+Nino Stark What you're saying is valid, it's just I have another interpretation from the same material. What I took away from it is that she was never in control, even confronted by the footage she herself filmed - I question whether or not in the narrative that she made any free choices, or at least any choices that matter. She can't trust her own memories or the world that's presented to her on any level, so why should we? No matter what she does it all wraps back on itself in cruel misfortune. Her boyfriend had the tattoo. In the trial, she had said that she was under his spell. What if she was telling the truth? The hosts of White Bear use the symbol. It's operating on several layers of meta. None of them are in control, they're all puppets, even if only because they're fictional characters to be played with as a reflection of the worst instincts of humanity - Stefan and Colin are puppets aware of the strings. I'm not saying this is necessarily the case for ALL episodes, but these 2 particular episodes emphasize the 'choice' symbol in narratives where it's pretty clear none of the choices make a difference to the fate of the characters and that they're clearly being controlled and monitored. Stefan is as trapped as the woman in White Bear.

+kainedamo I get what you're saying, but her life was controlled/tormented because of the choice she made, (filming/not helping the child who got killed) lives in black mirror do tend be very controlled, Kenny is a perfect example, but it's usually all a consequence of previous activities, we don't often find out until the typical twist point. To go on a slight tangent... Metal head didn't seem to have any of this, there was no turning point which created the scenario/world as it was, I think that's why it's somewhat universally disliked among fans.

+Nino Stark It seems to me that it represents the illusion of choice - particularly for the characters in the Black Mirror universe. White Bear - a woman's daily life is carefully controlled and monitored without her knowledge. The only difference between White Bear and Bandersnatch is we have 2 characters who are self-aware that they are puppets on strings.

I think black mirror has always been about the paths the characters choose and the subsequent possible effects. E.g crocodile, the mother choose to implant her daughter. The PM chooses to fuck the pig Kenny chooses to be a nonce. I think the symbol is just representative of that.
