this show gives you a whole new outlook on what our future could hold. I saw 1x03 before google glass was announced and then hearing about glass got me scared as to our potential possible future going down a similar route.
Every episode brings up another topic for thought into our future and morals as a society. S1 is for sure the most memorable but each individual episode is worthy of attention. It really makes you take a deep hard look at what our society is becoming at the cost of technology, to keep advancing and the problems we could face as a society because of this thirst we have for comfort.
the only downside i found watching this series is you have to concentrate to watch it, or you will miss something, and the early parts of the episodes can seem boring at first watch, but watching them over after you have seen the whole episode you will have that "AHHH" moment.
if you are after a series to make your head-spin and bring about plenty of debate between friends and family then this is the show for you.
It is a brilliant thought provoking series and i really hope they make more!
Set in an dark, dystopian world full with dark humor and unique, creative stories which pretty much could happen in the future, "Black Mirror" is one of the best shows of all time. Everyone should watch this. ♥
Wanted to see what all the buzz was about... I've watched 5 episodes and got bored out of my mind. Feels like it's targeted for teenagers.
It has a very simplistic take to it: ultra-hyper-dramatization of very basic concepts and bad behaviors of a minority of people. Reviews say it raises questions about society and politics but does not provide arguments or details either way. The stories are sometimes interesting but lack any depth and in the end, it's the idea that counts, or so they say. Just presenting basic questions with no details and some vague/weird drama only makes people argue and thus promoting the series. I find it pretentious.
One of the society satires i enjoy is South Park which most of the times present quite a complete picture about a topic with multiple perspectives and arguments. Compared to South Park at that, Black Mirror is kind of showing you only what the main character(s) see.
Plot twists over plot twists. Really nice series.
I've watched all shows and seasons. Can't wait for some more. #Recommended
Season 1 and 2: stellar. Exciting, dark, spooky. Season 3... meh. It has all the ingredients, but lacks the cynicism. Instead of wanting to confront you, the viewer, as I see it they just invent stuff that could happen in some version of the future, and roll with it. Grim was cast aside for cool, and the abstract got replaced by the obvious. Season 1 and 2 were unlike anything I've ever seen, but 3 doesn't do it for me.
