94% Black Mirror: Season 4 - USS Callister (TV Episode) Cinematic feats and Easter eggs aside, the 74-minute sci-fi story is bound to be received similarly to "San Junipero," as its theme of reclaiming power under tyranny is a relevant message to be sending before 2017 comes to a close. - Hollywood Reporter EDIT

100% Black Mirror: Season 1 - The National Anthem (TV Episode) "The National Anthem" remains the story that should be used to indoctrinate viewers into Brooker's universe.
