My oldest son put me on to Black Mirror. I didn’t know what to expect going in, but man am I glad I invested the time.
The general theme of the show is how technology rules our lives and the consequences of being so attached.
You’ll be in the middle of an episode and have no clue where it’s going. That’s the beauty of the show. The shady people, the mysterious settings, and the jaw-dropping plot twists make it one of the premiere Netflix Originals.
One of the strongest episodes is called Nosedive. It focuses on our obsession with acceptance from people online. It is beautifully written, deathly accurate, and overall a fun episode to dissect.
At thirteen episodes you can breeze through the three seasons pretty quickly.
It will be time well spent.
