Overall I feel like Black Mirror is losing it's "Ah hah, got you to shit your pants" moments that we all fell in love with. I think i'm moving on to "Inside No.9"
If you've never seen Black Mirror I usually describe it as the Tech Version of The Twilight Zone. If that doesn't do it for you, here's Sylvester Stallone and Sandra Bullock in a scene from "Demolition Man" that pretty much sums it up.
Now for the Reviews
Episode 1: USS Callister
A mild mannered CTO by day but a twisted god who loves him some god dam pizza at night. Who wouldn't play god in their own made up perfect world?
Episode 2: Arkangel
Dropcam for teens. Geofence your daughters 15 year old vag and get alerts every time a cool boy with a van makes his move and if that doesn't work revert to the analog plan...B
Episode 3: Crocodile
As an avid cyclist, never again will I be riding my bike up the sidewinding roads of the mountains in Norway the morning after a rave.
Episode 4: Hang the DJ
I need to rewatch this one. Not sure how I feel about a algoriythm telling us how long to be together... like, why even be together?
Episode 5: Metalhead
New meaning to "who let the dogs out?" Probably the most artsy fartzy episode of them all. I rewatched this one and I have to say..it got my blood pumping.
Episode 6: Black Museum
If you have ever driven through I10 from TX to NM you'll run into random Museums and Attractions. This one hit a nerve with me, short stories, similar to "Tales of the Crypt" but it just didn't do it for me.
