Is Bandersnatch The Future Of Television?

If you kill everyone, including yourself, you never get a chance not to kill again. No matter how far back it lets you go, the option to not kill someone never comes up. It doesn’t ever let you back down to your dad and no matter how many times you pick bury your dad, only Thuckar will ever come to your house, because you kill him.

I hope not; Bandersnatch was kinda shit IMO. Starts out fine, but as the story branches out it progressively gets worse and worse.

They're great concepts and it's cool to see it as a movie/show instead of a video game. It's a very niche style however, so I don't think it will (or should) replace conventional, linear story telling. I'd rather watch one variant of a huge block buster movie that has one definitive ending, but I'd also like the thought of watching a specialised movie that lets you alter the story. Both forms of story telling can certainly coexist, and I'm guessing stuff like this will only get more popular, but it won't in any way shape or form take over and dominate standard movies/show formats/formulas. It's technically just a new genre that can be applied if that's what the creators want. You couldn't go to the cinema and watch a personal screening of it, and if you paid for a ticket to watch it, you may want your money back in case you regretted making certain decisions (would be a good way to make money though - charging people over and over to try different pathways, but nah). What I'm trying to say is, I enjoy movies that the creators have provided a single, clear ending to, but I'm also willing to watch/participate in interactive stories too, whatever form they take. I want both. But to answer the question, can they work? Yeah

I didn't choose the "work at company" first, needless to say, when I went back to choose that passage it was somewhat underwhelming... I did like the options to go back and the way it would replay the steps in a way that wasn't annoying... What really impressed me were the "replays" that actually weren't the same, you'd go back and then the characters would be taking about "deja Vu" and this "happening before". Avatar may have been the Pinnacle of 3d, but Hugo was the promise, what 3d could have become if given to filmmakers that care for it as an artform

To talk about theatres, mass theatre watching could be a testing ground for interconnected interactive film. Instead of thinking of interactive films as a series of binary choices made to affect the outcome of a film think of it instead as a series of events of interaction between the audience and the film. I can imagine that there are plenty of ways to involve a large audience into a film with the key being how to initiate and manage their engagement. For example, imagine the film being a "find the clues" game for a mystery where the ending the audience gets depends on the number of clues they find. Or imagine a film where the audience has to aid the characters in different ways like helping them avoid pieces of debris for example. The only constraint for theater goers is time to get the full experience but that can be worked out.

I have watched Bandersnatch and was enthralled. I have enjoyed Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Fallout and Elder Scrolls. I also really engaged in Batman Tale Tales. When ever I played those games I enjoyed having choices. If anything I wanted more choices, more consequences and greater diversity of outcomes. I intend to play The Witcher series and play more Tale Tales games. Heck I want to play all of the Tale Tales games. Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is intriguing to me because of the ability to make choices. Heavy Rain, Beyond Two Souls and Life Is Strange are also games I want to try out for their multiple choices and branching story lines. I don't know if choose your own adventure games are going to take off but consider me intrigued. If you have any recommendations for choose your own adventure stories and role playing games please let me know.

I could see the format being used to tell stories from different character perspectives, instead of different timelines. You could be given choices at certain points during the story to follow character A or B, etc, and you would have the ability to choose between different perspectives on the same story. One viewer's choices might lead them through the story following the "heroes" and another would follow the "villains", or however the story would be structured.

The answer is no. Bandersnatch was complete trash. There is an illusion of choice so it's not a real choice. Choose not to talk to the therapist, yell at dad, do acid with Colin, either of you jump off the balcony, it makes you go back and talk to the therapist anyway...that's not choice. I don't know if you kid remember but they tried this in theatres back in the 80's with audience participation. Everyone had remotes in the theatre and would vote. It failed then and it's still an illusion of choice now. So in almost 40 years they haven't got it right so the answer is no. If I want to play a video game I'll play a video game and not watch a movie. Bandersnatch is trash 🚮

I didn't really understand what Stefan was learning each time he sort of reset, when you go back after accepting Stefan knows things he didn't the first time, so I thought that after finding out that his parents were controlling him he would wake up after killing him or whatever and still know the truth. But seemingly things changed depending on what you pick, like in one reality his parents are controlling him and in one reality they're not and his mom is actually his mom and she actually died. It felt like something that thought it was very smart but wasn't or had more ambition than ability.

"Final Destination 3 - Choose Their Fate", anyone? It's a terrible movie, but I love it, and the interactive elements are fun. Multiple endings make for increased rewatch-ability! Unlike Choose Your Own Adventure books. Blech. And I still have one. Of course, I loved the original Final Destination, and sequel too, but from the 4th one on, it was pure trash without any redeeming qualities. At least if you get to choose their fate a la the 3rd film, it's fun to see what those choices actually result in, i.e. head smashed in drive thru accident. "And then? Aaand thennnnn?" ~chuckles~

To address the issue they mentioned about being sucked out of the immersion because you're exploring small bits and pieces of different timelines rather than big chunks of one same timeline.... I gotta say that I didn't see it that way. I mean just consider this: in the beginning you get the choice to work for the company at their headquarters or work alone, if you pick work for the company you're outright told my Colin "you picked the wrong path" and rewinded to moments prior once again to pick something different. Except this time the characters behave different; your character knows things it didn't the first time, as well as other characters in the scene, and the dialogue changes from your first play through as if they know what's gonna happen already and change their scripts. Their dialogue suggests they been here before but don't know why. So to me it's not so much that you get a do over; but that the rewind IS PART of the singular narrative. Like Colin says.... We exist in many parallel realities, time is an illusion, it's all simultaneous. You learn what to do because you have memories of having done it differently in an alternate "take" of time in another reality and that echo or memory influences your decision now. So to me it wasn't like you were peeking at small sections of different universes, then coming back, it was that you were expanding into different level/layers of awareness and your character retained that knowledge inprint every time. Which is what ended up leading him to insanity and to lose his notion of linear time because his consciousness was experiencing all time at once and remembering it all, thats why he goes insane - cause he peeked behind the curtains like Colin said, and saw the big picture of all existence simultaneously

I wish Mr Sunday would start producing tv series and movies and have his own streaming service.. Mason would be the writer, James the director and producer, and both would be starring in them. can save a lot of money on CGI as it can have a guy with a goat head without CGIing in it.. which can be used to digitally remove Masons facial hair. or add a CGI michael joseph jackson. the possibilities are endless. The main antagonist would be Mr Sundays brother, the one Mason doesnt like.. he'd create Star Wars news every week. and every action scene would be Mason and James doing a flip. or Mason a flip, James a horizontal leap.

I think Bandersnatch was a pretty brilliant and well executed idea but you can tell it's sort of the first of its kind (when it comes to movies or doing this for a more casual audience).

What's so wrong about making this character live a dull, repetitive life? I feel semi-punished. It was enjoyable reliving it again and making other more rebellious choices however I felt I was on rails, not totally in control like your would suggest in this type of format.
