Default Black Mirror



I cant find a thread on this show so here it is! Because it deserves one in my opinion.

It's created by Charlie Brooker. Known mostly for Screenwipe. Also did a show called Dead Set which I haven't seen.

Might as well just paste some blurb from Wikipedia:

Regarding the programme's content and structure, Brooker noted, "each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality. But they're all about the way we live now – and the way we might be living in 10 minutes' time if we're clumsy."

Charlie Brooker explained the series' title to The Guardian, noting: "If technology is a drug – and it does feel like a drug – then what, precisely, are the side-effects? This area – between delight and discomfort – is where Black Mirror, my new drama series, is set. The "black mirror" of the title is the one you'll find on every wall, on every desk, in the palm of every hand: the cold, shiny screen of a TV, a monitor, a smartphone."[1]

It's pretty f*cking bleak, but I'm loving it so far. I've seen all three of season 1 and the first episode of the second season so far. My favourite is '15 Million Merits' so far. Blew me away.

Who's watching? What do you think?
