A contemporary British re-working of The Twilight Zone with stories that tap into the collective unease about our modern world. Over the last ten years, technology has transformed almost every aspect of our lives before we've had time to stop and question it. In every home; on every desk; in every palm - a plasma screen; a monitor; a smartphone - a black mirror of our 21st Century existence.
When this series started its life as a UK production for Channel 4 it could be described variously as, revolutionary, subversive, dark, subliminal and wholly awesome. Then Netflix came along..... Now words I'd use to describe it include, bland, woke, lecturing, predictable, formulaic and largely unwatchable. As far as I'm concerned season 5 is beyond redemption and the last time I'll go anywhere near the franchise. 1/10.
