Black Mirror is one of the best things to happen to television, ever. It is like a modern Twilight Zone that focuses as much on technology as it does people, and how mixing both can often have cataclysmic results. Set in a future (pretty much five minutes away from our own) Black Mirror runs in such a way that each episode tells one exact story and the next episode telling another, all featuring different actors and stories, with the themes of technology and self discovery running throughout the show.
Thing is, it is a British show and it was taking way too much time between seasons (worth the wait once you saw how good the show was) but we were getting antsy. So Netflix snatched it up, doubled its season size (from three episodes to six a season) and hired some great minds to help make it all come together. Once you peep the trailer below (especially if you are an established Black Mirror fan like myself) you will see that it looks like they nailed the dark tones of the show perfectly.
Plus, that trailer is like a who’s-who of great actors and actresses right now. That and knowing how twisted the last seasons were, one cannot even begin to fathom what these folks are going to go through, But we know it will be hell and will he one helluva good time to watch.
Black Mirror comes home to Netflix starting October 21st with its first batch of six episodes, with six more said to follow not long after. Can’t wait to see how they top the pig-fucking.
Guess you have to watch the show to see what I am talking about there….
