Black Mirror season 6 finale Demon 79 is being hailed as the show's best episode in years
| Last updated
What's the best Black Mirror episode? Shut Up and Dance? White Christmas? Maybe they were before, but many fans are now giving the title to the season six finale.
The series consists of five episodes: Joan Is Awful, Loch Henry, Beyond the Sea, Mazey Day and Demon 79.
Some people were frustrated to learn there'd only be five episodes to watch after a four-year wait, but creator Charlie Brooker has apparently made sure to deliver quality over quantity.
Netflix users have been binging the season since its release, and now the verdicts are in.
"Demon 79 was probably the best Black Mirror episode ever," one approving viewer wrote.
A lot of fans agree, praising the episode which stars Anjana Vasan, Paapa Essiedu, Katherine Rose Morley, and David Shields, among others.
Demon 79 is set in Northern England in 1979, and tells the story of a 'meek sales assistant' who is told she must carry out some horrific acts to prevent disaster.
The episode has received a strong rating of 7.2 out of 10 on IMDb, and after watching it one person commented: "Demon 79 is the best episode ever to grace a television I am f**king sobbing."
Another wrote: "Demon '79 has been the best episode so far, similar vein to Knock At The Cabin Door."
The season finale definitely isn't the only new episode getting praised, though, and other fans have declared some of the other new instalments as their favourites.
"Of course the episode starring Aaron Paul is arguably the best episode of Black Mirror season 6," one fan commented, referring to the third episode, Beyond The Sea.
They continued: "There is 2 VERY important messages in this episode. The right thing isn’t always the right thing to do and misery loves company. Insanity of an episode."
Another fan shared their opinions in a full breakdown after watching the new season, writing: "Demon 79 is one of my all time faves, Loch Henry is a brilliantly twisty take on true crime, and Joan Is Awful is wild in the best way.
"Beyond the Sea doesn’t reach its full potential and Mazey Day is maybe the worst episode ever?"
