this show gives you a whole new outlook on what our future could hold. I saw 1x03 before google glass was announced and then hearing about glass got me scared as to our potential possible future going down a similar route. Every episode brings up another topic for thought into our future and morals as a society. S1 is for sure the most memorable but each individual episode is worthy of attention. It really makes you take a deep hard look at what our society is becoming at the cost of technology, to keep advancing and the problems we could face as a society because of this thirst we have for comfort. the only downside i found watching this series is you have to concentrate to watch it, or you will miss something, and the early parts of the episodes can seem boring at first watch, but watching them over after you have seen the whole episode you will have that "AHHH" moment. if you are after a series to make your head-spin and bring about plenty of debate between friends and family then this is the show for you. It is a brilliant thought provoking series and i really hope they make more!

Wanted to see what all the buzz was about... I've watched 5 episodes and got bored out of my mind. Feels like it's targeted for teenagers. It has a very simplistic take to it: ultra-hyper-dramatization of very basic concepts and bad behaviors of a minority of people. Reviews say it raises questions about society and politics but does not provide arguments or details either way. The stories are sometimes interesting but lack any depth and in the end, it's the idea that counts, or so they say. Just presenting basic questions with no details and some vague/weird drama only makes people argue and thus promoting the series. I find it pretentious. One of the society satires i enjoy is South Park which most of the times present quite a complete picture about a topic with multiple perspectives and arguments. Compared to South Park at that, Black Mirror is kind of showing you only what the main character(s) see.

Set in an dark, dystopian world full with dark humor and unique, creative stories which pretty much could happen in the future, "Black Mirror" is one of the best shows of all time. Everyone should watch this. ♥

Has an interesting and creative concept, but the execution is mostly bad. The writers did a bad job creating believable and relatable worlds, it lacks good dialogs, most of them are cringy. Also you can predict the outcome of the episode after about 15 minutes in. I liked the first season for its themes, which made you think about what the future could bring. But the second and third season are very over the top and not relatable at all. Very overrated in my opinion.

Would be a really good show if they didn't had a really poor ending in every episode. Only White Christmas and White Bearer had good endings.

Horrid show. Don't waste your time. Yuk

As much as I love Black Mirror, I just want to throw it out there that it is far from the only show to do what it does. It may seem like the best because it's on TV right now, and tech is so prevalent in our lives that it's always relevant, but if you take away the modern tech, it's really just a modern Twilight Zone, which it's always been compared to. But it doesn't stop there. There's also The Outer Limits, which was seen as a generic Twilight Zone at the time, but had a revival in the 90s. Both Outer LImits series tended to focus on aliens and the supernatural. Then there was Night Gallery, which was also hosted by Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling. Of course we all remember Tales From the Crypt, and at this point it's worth mentioning Red Shoe Diaries, which was basically the softcore version of Tales From the Crypt. Late night adult programming, but the formula was the same, each episode telling its own story. The best of them, in my opinion, was Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories. Supposedly, Amazing Stories is being brought back, and last I heard, Apple is financing it (and something from Battlestar Galactica '04 and Star Trek writer Ronald D Moore), so that should be interesting, especially if it lands on a network we can all watch regardless of who makes our phone. So if you're looking for something to tide you over until the next season of Black Mirror... you've got your work cut out for you!

The synopsis of this series is "A television anthology series that shows the dark side of life and technology.". Succinct but accurate. Season 1 and 2 are so dark it is unsettling, Every episode a brilliantly crafted gem of dark crystal, a future reflection of our dark image. Terrifying but hypnotic. The talent is a showcase of the UK's best young actors.. I give it the first two seasons a 10 out of 10 for it's incredibly creative concepts and writing (and talent), but beware, it's creepy. Just finished the third season, and after a shaky start it flowered into brilliance again. And don't miss the Christmas Special "White Christmas". That Netflix adds it as the 4th episode of Season 2. Really good, if incredibly eerie, TV watching. Season 4 begins in Janauary 2017! I've just begun the 4th season of this series. I have been a fan from the very beginning. Each episode is stand alone but all of them revolve around the series theme of life darkly altered by technology. The writing is brilliant, and I don't say that lightly. Some episodes are truly perfect while a few don't quite hit the mark, but I give the series a 10 (truly ingenious) out of 10, and, it is one of my top ten TV series of all time. This particular episode opens the season with high marks for its tongue in cheek take on a TV SciFi classic combined with swirling dark undertones that lie just beneath a mundane reality. It begins as quirky and ends with a brilliant (there is that word again) resolve. This first episode I give a 9 (you guessed it - brilliant) out of 10. The series is considered a UK production, produced now by Netflix, but has episodes shot all over - the UK, Toronto:flag_ca:, Iceland, Spain, etc., with an international cast from both sides of the pond. Have I gushed enough? Needless to say, I will be binging this season. ****Binge complete - with the exception of episode 5, I was completely satisfied by this season. The writing is intelligent (if somewhat fond of expletives and sex), the acting is top notch and the twists at the end of each episode is that "just a little extra". Well done! Can't wait for the next season - thank you Netflix for rescuing this series.****

Season 1 and 2: stellar. Exciting, dark, spooky. Season 3... meh. It has all the ingredients, but lacks the cynicism. Instead of wanting to confront you, the viewer, as I see it they just invent stuff that could happen in some version of the future, and roll with it. Grim was cast aside for _cool_, and the abstract got replaced by the obvious. Season 1 and 2 were unlike anything I've ever seen, but 3 doesn't do it for me.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
