Started watching these episode like a week ago.

The episodes are each separate stories. Some are more thought provoking or cringe worthy than others.

I would advise anyone who hasn't done so (possibly the yanks on here), to watch the first two seasons as well. Brooker is an absolute genius when it comes to these near future fables.

It can be a difficult show to watch, but very good. Difficult in that it pushes you pass your comfort level. It kinda feels like Outer Limits, except a more modernized version that deals more with the technology and sociological issues we see today. 

 

I recommend it...but it is a hard show to watch at time when it hits close to home.

I adore Black Mirror. <3 I'm not quite sure what some of you are talking about with it making you uncomfortable (unless you're talking about The National Anthem of course. That was a bad day for the prime minister...). I thought it was just good writing for darker subjects. I especially like how they focus more on the psychology of the characters more than anything else in the show. It's always interesting to watch.


I hope you're having a nice day. :)

It's uncomfortable to watch because nearly every episode is either horribly awkward, creepy as hell, or frighteningly possible.

It is also well written and casted enough to make you feel for the poor bastards.

Empathy is a hell of a drug.


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

That's why you don't do drugs, kids.

 

Btw what's your favourite episode? If you have a favourite episode that is.


I hope you're having a nice day. :)
