Finally finished all three seasons and I must say, I'm so impressed. From episode one, this show had me hooked and it was just so unreal to see how close Black Mirror really is to our own current society. This show is scary, oddly funny and contains the wow factor that we've all been searching for. Usually I'm not one for sci-fi things but this is just a whole other level.
This show has been organised into different skits per episode, so you don't have to watch them in order but I would highly recommend that you do. That being said, there are various actors so I won't go about naming them all here. To avoid this review being too long, I'll condense it into my favourite and least favourite episodes.
Season 1: My favourite episode of this season was "Fifteen Million Merits." In what seemed like a eat, sleep, repeat style, it quickly turned sour as themes of betrayal, loss and heartbreak came to the surface. Without spoiling this episode, I'd say the perfect way to describe it would be something like giving all or nothing to someone and then having it thrown back into your face. This episode stars Daniel Kaluuya (which is why I knew he seemed familiar when I later saw Get Out). My least favourite episode of this season was "The National Anthem." I can't say I really enjoyed this episode and for reasons I'm not even that sure of. I think at times it just became a little too political for me (and as someone who really couldn't care less about politics, it was quite boring). However, I still appreciated the messages it brought across that were almost anti-twitter and clearly displaying that technology will forever be our downfall.
Season 2: My favourite episode of this season was "The Waldo Moment." Another politically based episode but yet, so relevant. I think it grabbed my attention most because Waldo, the blue bear in which coaxes politicians to appear on what they think is a children's TV show, but in fact a late night comedy show, has absolutely no filter. He says what he likes about the government and politicians. Again, it all changes and soon the man behind Waldo finds himself to be caught up in something (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)
