All in all, I was a bigger fan of the idea than the actual Black Mirror special. Judging by Black Mirror standards, it was quite consistent with the thought provoking theme of the series but it didn’t have as much impact as its predecessors. Still, as the first of its kind interactive streaming episode, it was solid enough to spawn a follow up. However, I can’t count myself as a fan of this type of set up just yet because it definitely takes time to get used to. I would have to wait until it grows on me.
All in all, I like the feel and flow of Creeped Out. While its not scary enough to keep you awake at night, its a good show for pre-teens and teens because its cool enough to keep them intrested and it has enough substance and style to deliver good standalone stories that gets the kids to think. Check it out on Netflix before the second season comes out next year.
