I have zero interest in alternate outcomes: Black Mirror/Bandersnatch FAIL

If I wanted to interact, I'd play a video game.

Raved the Guardian, "The interactive episode has breathed new life into the anthology show, with a choose-your-own-adventure element that puts viewers in the driving seat."

When I sit down to watch a movie or show, I want to watch — not have to think about choosing a direction for the characters to follow and one of five different endings.

I'm looking forward to enjoying the vision of the director, not my own tired tropes.

So it was very annoying to find that "Bandersnatch," the much ballyhooed new feature-length episode of "Black Mirror, which made its world premiere yesterday, 

1) Couldn't even be viewed on my non-smart 2007 TV

2) Wasn't a normal movie but rather involved choices made by me, the viewer

FAIL for this lazy person.

You should still give it a shot. It was less "Choose Your Own Adventure" and more Phillip K Dick.
