Why do people compare every science fiction with Black Mirror? The Netflix original part sucked. Stop it.
I've seen a los of TV Shows and this is the worst I've seen in my life. Run away from this if you can.
Not funny enough to be comedy, not dramatic enough to be Altered Carbon, not creepy enough to be Black Mirror.... All by all it's pretty much what the real future is going to be most likely.
The show isn't bad, it just doesn't seem to have anything going for it that gives it that punch. But... at least it hasn't got the political roasting and propaganda that a lot of shows have these days... Which is something, especially seeing it's co-written by Peele who is extremely disappointing with The Twilight Zone.
Imagine you're being told what happened on an episode of Black Mirror by someone clearly high on drugs and you'll understand Weird City.
Yeah, this wasn’t so great a show. It was definitely weird, but in a way that made me question so many of the aspects of the world rather than question aspects about our world. It felt like a poorly-made set of Key & Peele sketches where the worlds are disparately connected with throwaway connections (e.g., PEJ) and a lack of actual understanding for what those things were meant to represent.
I felt like some concepts were interesting, but then it was just connected to the weirdness of the people. I think it would have been much more interesting if they showed more about the process of how these people became so weird. If we had a better understanding about that, I think we would see how similar we are to these weirdos and how close we could be to getting to this kind of extreme point. Instead we just get a bunch of strange jokes and a feeling of distance that felt hardly related to our society.
Kind of a poorly constructed black mirror spoof... Good points are B grade actors, each episode has a slightly different flavor and it is quick to watch. More weird (not in a good way) than funny. I wouldn't recommend watching, unless you like super quirky, non serious writing that leaves you just shy of any meaningful feeling.
black mirror is that you !!!
that was, again, really bad. the only good yt original is Cobra Kai.
