That's because Bandersnatch is a "choose your own adventure" style story. Yes, like the book you enjoyed as a kid, but in TV form, you can actually tell the characters what to do, and ultimately dictate how the events of the episodes will unfold. Exciting!

The episode follow  the story of nerdy teenager Stefan who sets out to turn a multiple-choice science-fiction book by the same name “Bandersnatch” into a computer game that also presents the player with a series of choices.

Of course, there's a spooky twist to the story, as early on in the episode the viewer learns that the original author of the “Bandersnatch” book slowly lost his mind and spiraled into psychosis while writing the book. Which ended in the killing of his wife. 

Bandersnatch comes with five possible endings. If you take the simplest route, it will be over in around 40-minutes. However, the average viewing time is about 90-minutes.

The one catch is that the new "choose your own adventure" format might not work on older devices such as older Apple TVs or Smart TVs. 

Netflix has an official "help" page here, where you can verrify if your device is updated and adapted to stream "interactive content."
