    Caught like the first 4 episodes so far. Doesn't disappoint.

    Some mind bending shit that actually seems plausible in the right circumstances.

    A "Twilight Zone" for the computer/internet generation.

    If you're a tech "hater", you'll probably like it to. :)

    "Black Mirror" is an anthology series. If you don't like one just turn it off and go to the next. They're all self contained stories.

    Charlie Brooker's writer/co-writer credits are fucking impressive, gotta say:

    Black Mirror

    Nathan Barley

    Dead Set

    Brass Eye

    The 11 O'Clock Show

    Brooker/Morris might be the best comedy writing partnership ever.

    I quite liked #1. The USS Callister

    I can't binge watch these. I need like a week break between each one to process them fully.

    Dogshit.

    But then it's Charlie Brooker so it's not surprising.



    Okay it's not that shit, but it's typically 'Millenial Overrated'.

    To me it looks like it's bad at setting up ideas. It shoehorns it's entire fuck-modern-technology-social-media (de-rigeur Brooker) agenda in so much and with such lack of subtlety it's pretty much the cinematographic equivalent of an old-cunt screaming "Social media makes us less social!'

    A show created for the 'edgy, hipster, neo-liberal crowd' who'll eat it up because they're trash.

    No, you're just a cynical cunt who can't enjoy nice things.

    Brooker is brilliant. Nathan Barley was prophetic.

    Best thing Brooker ever did was:

    Hahaha I remember that, was great.

    Best thing he ever did was Brass Eye, obviously that's more Morris but Brooker still had a significant contribution.

    Yeah I rate Morris over Brooker....not everything he does, but The Day Today, Brass Eye and Blue Jam (on radio) were great...only managed to catch the latter cos it was on from midnight and I was working 10pm-6am back then...
