Datamining Bandersnatch

You may have heard about Bandersnatch, an interactive film released on Netflix as part of the Black Mirror series. I’ve heard about it when it was released, but didn’t get around to watch it until recently, and I was surprised at how deep and thorough the implementation is. The film consists of: 250 segments 62 variables (mostly boolean, some having 3 or 4 possible values) 174 choices 111 segment groups (points at which variables are used to decide the outcome) and 241 preconditions (boolean expressions used in segment groups and elsewhere).
