Black Mirror is one of those Netflix shows that if you haven’t seen yet, you owe it to yourself to. The show does a fantastic job of bridging the gap between technological reality and potential possibilities. Often times at the end of an episode, no matter how far fetched it starts out, you’re believing that the scenario you just witnessed isn’t that far fetched after all.
After being picked up by Netflix a few years ago, Black Mirror Season 5 is just around the corner with three new episodes. Some bigger names are attached as well, including Miley Cyrus and Anthony Mackie. At any rate, the trailer speaks for itself, check it out:
Personally, I think this season is looking to have some of the most plausible technological scenarios based on today’s usage of technology. I mean, seriously, when was the last time you looked around and DIDN’T see someone face down in their phone or other smart device?
Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia leading to an unforgettable – and sometimes unsettling – conclusion. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm – a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us.
The new episodes star Anthony Mackie, Miley Cyrus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace, Damson Idris, Andrew Scott, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport and Ludi Lin.
You can catch the latest season of Charlie Booker’s show on Netflix on June 5th. In the meantime, you can catch all four previous seasons on the streaming service.
