Agreed. I get that people are squeamish, but I'm way more disturbed by the many episodes where fully sentient digital simulacra are endlessly tortured for extremely petty gain.

I thought the most recent season was refreshingly less oppressively dystopian than previous seasons. The episodes are still dark, but not "trapped in a digital hellscape for eternity" dark.

An episode that I liked a lot that I don't recall seeing mentioned here is Be Right Back from S2.
