Black Mirror Season 1

Hello Dweller and Welcome to the Basement...

With the majority of the next month freed TV wise, I figure I better come up with something, so thanks to a co-worker, I sat down and watched the first season of Black Mirror, and so here is my review of it. 

  • Unlike most shows, Black Mirror is a 'true' anthology series, every episode has to stand on it's own with a self contained story and unique characters, it's very much like the Twilight Zone.
  • Of the three episodes in the first season, I liked the second one the best and felt the third episode was the weakest
  • In The first episode, 'The National Anthem', where everyone is watching the PM having to do the deed, the reaction of the people is about as perfect represented as possible
  • If those involved got the rights to the name, this series could easily be called 'The Twilight Zone'
