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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Audience Reviews for Black Mirror: Season 2

Be Right Back (3.5/5) Though the ending wasn't too satisfying for me, the episode is, like other Black Mirror episodes, thought-provoking with a sense of melancholy and has pretty good performances by Hayley Atwell and Domnhall Gleeson. White Bear (3.5/5) The first half was kinda slow for me, then the second half happened and it kinda disturbed me. The Waldo Moment (3/5) Probably my least favorite episode so far in the series, but not a bad one, it still has interesting themes and good performances.

Speechless. Seen bitter and horrible future. Tech bless the world, tech spare the world.

Takes interesting concepts pairs it with amazing acting and then just attempts to manipulate an audience to believe that all technology and humanity is just inherintly bad with a single trace of good.

White Bear > Be Right Back > The Waldo Moment

S2 of BLACK MIRROR explores more of the futuristic, technology-driven world with the same thought-provoking revelations and chilling moments that will leave audiences quite disturbed.

You find it sad but irony. You find it cruel but indeed fact. You found it terrible but it really did. It feels like the second season focuses more on morality in each main character in each episode. The first episode is a tear-jerking, the second episode is so severe, and the third episode has a powerful satire. Good performance, brilliant writing, Black Mirror is still strong and inherent in society and its sarcastic technology.

Continua com a mesma qualidade. Destaque para "White Bear".

Black Mirror's second season might have a slightly weaker execution but stands out for its many ideas and haunting premonitions.

i see waldo actually happening at some point in the future and that is scary... and that's just the "easiest" episode of season 2 !

Black Mirror's sophomore season manages to keep entertaining its fans and new audience members while not losing its touch. It is a more darker season than the last, bringing in more thrills, although, it kind of gets lost with that last episode. Overall, solid season.
