Black Mirror: S1 & S2

black mirrorWhy did it take me so long to finish Black Mirror? Part of me wanted to savor the final bits of this incredible near-future technology drama from the U.K. Yes, the first episode, The National Anthem shocks, but what’s even more appalling stems from having to admit to yourself we are not that far away from something like this becoming a reality. Much scarier than the content of the episode. Highlights from the second season include my personal favorite, Be Right Back and perhaps the best episode of the seven so far – White Bear. Many have said Black Mirror is the Twilight Zone for this era. I agree because of Twilight Zone‘s strength as an innovative television series, but also disagree since I feel Black Mirror stands on its own. We are blessed that Netflix has ordered 12 new episodes. 4 out of 5 (the episodes mentioned get 5s).
