Awhile back, while scrolling my Netflix options, I discovered Black Mirror. It’s a sci-fi show from the UK, told in individual hour-long stories, a la Twilight Zone and Outer Limits, with a bent toward technology, and its influence and potential influences on us and our global society.
Each episode I have watched has been amazing. In each story I could see that we weren’t quite there, but oh, how easily we could be. I’m not even sure there is a turn that separates us, maybe only time.
If you are a fan of short stories that engage your mind and linger, making new thoughts, and creating shifts in perspective about the world around you, Netflix and chill with Black Mirror.
Season 3 is coming soon, and I for one, have been anticipating it for some time. The New York Times did a review of the show today. Read what they say and then go check it out for yourselves.
