    I’m watching “ Black Mirror” it is strange but really interesting. There are 3 seasons, I can’t stop watching.

    Anyone else watching the series?

    Black Mirror is a British science fiction television anthology series created by Charlie Brooker . It centres around dark and satirical themes that examine modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies. Episodes are standalone works, usually set in an alternative present or the near future. The show was first broadcast on the British Channel 4, in December 2011. A second series ran during February 2013. Then, in September 2015, Netflix commissioned a third series of 12 episodes, released in 2016. The commissioned episodes were later divided into two series of six episodes. The third series was released on Netflix worldwide on 21 October 2016. Filming for the fourth series concluded in June 2017, with the premiere expected later the same year.

    Regarding the programme's content and structure, Brooker noted, "each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality.

The series has received critical acclaim and has seen an increase in interest internationally (particularly in the US) after being added to Netflix. In 2017, the acclaimed series three episode "San Junipero " earned Black Mirror its first Primetimr Emmy Awards , for Outstanding Television Movie and Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special for Brooker.

    The first episode is quite disturbing.

    It's a great series, and the acting is top-notch. Episode 3 (the memories) was my favourite.

    Just watched ep S2.2 (White Bear)
    Such a clever twist, and so beautifully filmed. This is becoming one of my favourite shows.

    Episode 2.4. I didn't really understand the cookie thing. They took the cookie out and put it in a cookie?
    Where does the cookie come from, we're not born with these things.
    Still, it was wicked enough to be entertaining.

    I watched that episode tonight. Wow, that was really really good.

    And they keep using this old song:


    I still remember the days when songs like this re-charted because of a popular commercial or movie.

    Episode 3.6 (Hated In The Nation) was another cracker.
    Netflix doesn't have season 4 yet, have you watched those episodes @Jessie?
