An anthology series centering on different characters and locations, including a house with a murderous past, an insane asylum, a witch coven, a freak show, a hotel, a possessed farmhouse, a cult, and the apocalypse.
Set in a world only minutes from our own, "Black Mirror" unveils how modern technologies can backfire and be used against their makers, every episode set in a slightly different reality with different characters combating different types of technologies.
Black mirror is a reference to the effect of a TV or computer screen when switched off, giving a dark reflection of the onlookers. See more »
They filmed me.
Through my computer camera.
What, like, filmed you?
Yeah, like, you know, doing it.
No. Like, you... you know.
Jerking off. Jerking off to porn or something? Well, everyone does that. The fucking pope probably does that.

Watching it was disturbing and shocking at the same time.
Depressive in a way, but also genius and defying! The way it makes you question and think about reality and our modern technological ages it's brilliant!
And although being fictional and mostly sci-fi, it's so realistic in the scariest way!
It's not about tech... it's about us and our "human nature", the good and the bad, our best and worst as humans and that is definitely the most disturbing aspect of it all.
Worth seeing it all with detailed attention cause it's probably one of the most intelligent and critical TV series done recently!!
Thank you Mr Brooker and all the team!
P.S.: the first two episodes are probably the most disturbing ones and it's curious that all the bad reviews focus only in the first one... Reading those bad reviews only make more sense to the all series idea... Shocking uh? But wouldn't we be all in the pub watching it?
