Black Mirror is by far the best TV series I have seen in years. Production levels that are through the roof and features just absolutely insane writing and plot twists. It takes our modern world of technology everywhere around us and in everything we own, which has brought us comfort and spins it upside down to show the dark side.
It has this 1984-esque Orwellian vibe to it which creeps me out on a level like no TV series has done before. I am always trying to convince everyone how technology is going to make everything easier and better and this series shows how that’s not always true since it may actually make many of us worse off.
Here’s a trailer of the 15 Million Merits episode, which is a satire on talent shows worldwide.
