This mini-series is finally back for season 2. Unfortunately only 3 episodes per season, but they're some of the highest quality TV that's been made.
seriously, what's with the length of some of these british shows? i was blown away when i found out there were only a few mr. bean episodes.
The show is original, but the delivery is a bit lacking... the blackmail episode was ok, the anticipation episode was ham-fisted and meh, and I don't even remember the third.
Which one was the "anticipation" episode? The American Idol/X-factor one or the memory rewinding episode? The memory episode wasn't my favorite, but I thought the other was fantastic. In any case, all of the episodes are incredibly unique with poignant social commentary. They pass so far beyond what conventional television achieves. I might even place them above most HBO/Showtime shows when considered episode-by-episode.
Amusingly I forgot about the memory implant episode!
Oooh, this looks neat. Thank you.
I proclaim this awesome.
Resurrecting the thread as there's an unexpected Christmas special episode on the way, with Jon Hamm.
The festive episode of Charlie Brooker’s dystopian series arrives on 16 December. Here’s a first look, with Rafe Spall and Oona Chaplin joining the Mad Men star in seasonal hell
Exclusive trailer: Black Mirror Christmas special, starring Jon Hamm | Television & radio | The Guardian
Is that Harry Potter Tonks/GoT Osha in the bar near the start?
This recently showed up on US netflix for those who are interested. Been waiting a while to have an easy way to watch this.
"Marathoned" (there's only 3 episodes per series) through this just recently. Majority of it was good to just interesting. "Fifteen Million Merits" was by far the best episode although I haven't seen the Christmas special yet.
oh, theres a thread for this? yeah, caught in on netflix. Found it ok at best.
It does make me wish they would revive The Twilight Zone or Outer Limits. Not sure if these types of shows are expensive to produce since it would involve new sets every episode.
I liked White Bear a lot. Total mindfuck. Fifteen Million Merits and the pig one were also very good. The Waldo one was just weird. The other two were boring, done better a million times.
I just watched this entire show. Season 1, 2 & Christmas special. What a complete mind fuck. My favorite episodes were the Christmas one followed by the very first episode where the politician had to fuck a pig.
Really unique show, that's for sure. I hope they do a season 3 and don't axe it the way they did with Utopia.
On the up side, at least they're doing an American version of Utopia for HBO. I doubt they'll have the school shooting scene, though.
Black Mirror Season 3 will return with 12 new episodes on Netflix
Production on the new episodes of Black Mirror will begin later this year.
Can't fucking wait.
Calling me a Cunt is a lot like calling Hitler a Nazi, it's not exactly received as the insult you were intending.

Just watched the first episode of this series, "The National Anthem". It was one of the most unbelievably stupid & unrealistic things I have ever seen. Even as satire, it was just dumb. Surely this gets better...

Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker denies knowledge of David Cameron piggate | Metro NewsYou may have noticed that the Internet is in meltdown over allegations David Cameron put his naughty bits into a dead pig’s mouth.
The apparent Piers Gaveston Society initiation ceremony is all people can talk about.
You may also have made the grim comparison between these allegations – made in ex-Tory peer Lord Ashcroft’s explosive biography – and the dark plot from Black Mirror: The National Anthem.
The show will fuck you up. It's really far out, but very plausible. It shows a hellish existence.
edit: Fucking David Cameron. Ok fair enough. Regardless, the idea that the incident would play out the way it did on national television is ridiculous. Even good satire needs to hold to realism, or there is no buy in. In this day and age of terrorism there is no way the government would let their Prime Minister do some shit like that.

15 Million Merits was dramatically better.
The White Christmas special episode is fucking haunting. Imagine being trapped like that for a seemingly infinite time. Fuck.
I don't even get the problem. If that same thing happened in America, I guaran-fucking-tee every single one of us and every single person we know would watch it on tv and think it was hysterical, at least until it started actually happening. That's kind of the point, it's a funny joke that is actually horrifying in reality.
My issue lies more with the fact that with the way we treat terrorism, it would never happen in the first place. To me it was completely, unrealistic. I don't see any major government ever caving to something like that. The actual act of him fucking the pig I didn't really find "haunting". Rather hilarious, just because of the situation as a whole. Probably comes from the fact that I could never imagine that happening.
That Terrorism style episode was really twisted. The one where the girl wakes up in an apartment then has to run for her life from these crazy people in masks and stuff.
This show is frightening, if you think about things like that happening in a "real life" situation.
I watched the first two episodes of this show. Is it a one episode story type of show or is there continuity and a season long plot?
It's always kinda funny when you spend so much time watching an actor and have no idea that he was English after watching him in a movie (main character in second episode, American accent in Sicario). Remember telling a family member that Idris Elba was indeed English. Blew his mind after seeing him as Stringer Bell forever.
