Black Mirror and our Nightmarish Tech Utopia?

Reply Mon 10 Dec, 2018 07:13 am
Who else here loves/dreads every episode of Black Mirro (2011-)?
Four seasons in and one cooking on the production line, this critically acclaimed and audience loved Brit series has been compared and smashed up against it's legendary Grandpappy series of the Twilight Zone and the Outer Limits.

I'm mildly confused that there doesn't seem to be a thread on this insanely incredible and terrifying and fascinating anthology series. Let's rectify this a2k crime of omission.

What's your favorite episode? Is it fair to compare the series to the Twilight Zone? The Outer Limits? Other scifi anthology series?

I love these episodes, but they sometimes hit too close to home on some of their technology possibilities, and those scare the crap out of me.

It's quite enjoyable.

However I don't tend towards comparing it to TZ or OL, both of which have their own vibes. Personally, nothing will ever fully compare to the greatness of The Outer Limits. Too this day there are episodes which pop back in my head when certain odd and eerie things occur and I am forced to wonder...


Big gripe: Too few episodes per season of Black Mirror

I point out the episode about the helicopter mother to my wife as an ominous warning.
