Hey, Jedi Counsel fans! This week we decided to finally catch up with the world and check out Black Mirror: Bandersnatch! We know, we are a bit behind everyone else, but we were excited to talk about it anyways! Listen in as we both go through our individual choices and discuss some of the psychological themes that are depicted on the various paths. Throughout the different paths, there are depictions of therapy, taking psychiatric medications, dealing with guilt/trauma, engaging in substance use, suicide (maybe?), and our least favorite of all, depictions of an individual struggling from mental health concerns engaging in violent behavior towards others. We break down all of these themes and more. Have you tried Bandersnatch? How did your experience compare to ours? What were your overall thoughts?
