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.

Nov 15, 2017 | 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.

Nov 15, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | 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.

Audience Reviews for Black Mirror: Season 2

  • 3d ago
    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

    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.
