Critic Reviews for Black Mirror Season 2

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

The futures that its six episodes examine are uncannily similar to the present day... But that resemblance to now is what makes its underlying messages about technology butting up against human life so powerful

Black Mirror gets you like that: First you're giggling, then you're sobbing. It's the rare show that unsettles just as much as it entertains.

Dec 12, 2013 | Full Review…

The only dud is media satire The Waldo Moment, which feels like an overextended sketch. But it's still gratifying to see this kind of ambition on British TV.

The second season, released in 2013 and made up of three other episodes with independent stories, remains faithful to the tragic tone of the previous one. [Full Review in Spanish]

In Black Mirror, our tuned-in, switched-on, networked-up society sits for its portrait.

Jul 22, 2018 | Full Review…

It's the Twilight Zone for modern, technology-obsessed times, with important takes on politics and human nature. Each and every episode has a way of getting under the viewer's skin.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

It's still the case that, right now, there's nothing else on television remotely like Black Mirror. More please, Mr. Brooker.

Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…

There are high-handed moments and a schematic quality basic to its project, but overall the show is earnestly and intelligently, imaginatively engaged with its times

Sep 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Two episodes from the show's upcoming third season ... brilliantly flesh out the absurdities of our tech-addled world, presenting alternate visions of life lived in virtual spaces.

    Humans need to return to the western canon and the bible to rediscover truth, beauty and goodness and turn away from vile filth like this series, which corrupts the mind and damages the spirit.

    I watched Be Right Back, White Christmas, and Waldo Moment. Reddit said WC would not be advisable for squeamish folks, but apart from the two scenes with blood, I found it engaging, and easily my favourite episode in both seasons 1 and 2.

    I, for the most part, might just say I enjoyed the hell out of this. Might.

    My Rating 10/10 !!!NO SPOILERS!!! *Its a masterpiece to get comprehensive info or ideas that how future tech will look alike e.g. VR, AR, AI etc developing and what will be the possible situations after 10-50 Years. *Basically its biased on that future technologies that how they can be use as super evil for humanity and kindly note that its not anti-tech Series so as a tech guy i didn't got offended. for example:its like telling people that Guns are good for safety but how are the possible methods or can be used for super evil purposes. *Its an science fiction anthology means each episode have different story but based on main idea Future Technologies. *It not like f**king boring story telling or sad f**king bullsh*t its Action, Drama, Sci-fi, trust me each episode have beautiful story and can be converted to f**king beautiufl 3 hours movie. I was confused that should I watch that i means spend time on that but after Watching first episode It made me watch all the seasons and I have watched all 5 seasons (10:00 PM 13 July 2019) *I loved the film and Its a Must Watch for Sci-fi Lovers

    This season was terrific and it was better than season 1 and more enjoyable to me. Episode 1, Be Right Back, is my favorite episode of season 2 and I give it a 10 out of 10. The writing, concept, and story in Be Right Back were exceptional and it was really weird, cool, funny, and sad. The acting in Be Right Back was phenomenal especially from Hayley Atwell and Domhnall Gleeson. Episode 2, White Bear, was a great episode with a terrific story and twist ending but it was my least favorite episode of season 2. The acting in White Bear was fantastic especially from Lenora Crichlow, Michael Smiley, and Tuppence Middleton. I give episode 2, White Bear, a 8 out of 10. Episode 3, The Waldo Moment, was really funny and had excellent writing and a excellent story. The acting and voice over from Daniel Rigby was stupendous and hilarious. I liked this one better than White bear but it wasn't my favorite episode of the season. I give episode 3, The Waldo Moment, a 9 out of 10. This was a A+ season.

    The first major misstep of the series, with White Bear and Waldo Moment being equally awful, predictable, and boring. The other two offer interesting tales that make it worth a watch
