Darkest of all... was the real reason Spall and Hamm were there.

Black Mirror's Christmas special features one of the single most upsetting concepts ever introduced in the realm of fictional entertainment...

Worse still, its effectiveness was based entirely on "surprise moments" and not on a long-term reflection that would allow the involvement of the audience. [Full Review in Spanish]

The episode presents three interwoven stories that maintain the mixture of black humor, satirical and provocative touches and script twists that characterized the previous chapters. [Full Review in Spanish]

Interesting ideas that, with the brevity in which they arise, do not get to develop at all but they manage to have unity and to disturb.

Much about this episode is fed by things we've seen in previous Black Mirrors, particularly the use of technology, but overall it's a damning indictment of the callousness of humans; what a lovely Christmassy subject!

If the all-too-plausible predictions didn't chill you to the bone, there was more; an eternity soundtracked by Wizzard's "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday". Please God, nooooo!

For newcomers, "White Christmas" can be a welcome shock, a purgative guaranteed to counteract overdoses of holiday cheer.

I realise this all sounds profoundly depressing, and it is. Yet White Christmas is presented with a great deal of mischief and wit and humour, all of which prevent it from being the greatest advertisement the Samaritans have ever had.

Apr 4, 2018 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

Black Mirror is here to remind you that even empathetic people can ruin lives, and taking the moral high ground in an argument can't fix the world. Oh, and if a Don Draper type tries to charm you? Run.
