Black Mirror is a British television anthology series created by Charlie Brooker that features speculative fiction with dark and sometimes satirical themes that examine modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies. The first two seasons of the series were produced by Zeppotron for Endemol. The show was first broadcast on Channel 4 in 2011. In September 2015, Netflix commissioned a third season of 12 episodes. The commissioned episodes were later divided into two seasons of six episodes; the third season was released on Netflix worldwide on 21 October 2016. - Wiki
This program is the best thing on TV! Watch it! Let's talk episodes!!
None of the episodes feel like they are playing tricks on you, keeping you guessing what is actually going on until the last two minutes. It's refreshing for a scifi anthology show!
All episodes are great, with 2 being exceptional IMO. I'd like to hear more opinions.
The new season is really good! Hope you enjoy the rest of the episodes.
My rankings (very close and difficult to choose from Season 3) -
1. San Junipero
4. Hated in the Nation
5. Men Against Fire
6. Shut Up and Dance
The first 3 left me pondering the themes brought up for a day or 2 or more after watching them and sparked discussion with others who had watched them.
Then there was so much to talk about. Look at how they use gestures for everything. Look how they purchase everything. Why is everyone on bikes? Is it post apocolypse? Is everything just fine and is it just dystopic? Did they get to this point voluntarily? So much going on here.
Has anyone managed to watch season 1, 2 & Christmas special?
I am really impressed how on the pulse of current fears of technology they are and still manage to create entertaining episodes. The previous anthology "what if" shows rarely were able to do both of those things at the same time.
It really feels like the "1984" of television, except instead of needing to wait 40+ years, some of this is taking place now (citizenship points in China), could actually take place, or really isn't that unrealistic.
I can't recommenced this enough to anyone who has ever enjoyed a dystopian work and has a technological bent.
