Critic Reviews for Black Mirror Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

For all its metaphysical speculating, Black Mirror excels in suggesting that technology does not make us unrecognizable monsters; it simply amplifies the monstrous impulses already in us.

Black Mirror is provocative, irreverent, daring ... and very British. [Full Review in Spanish]

Stimulating, but more in its promise than in the achievement, the series gives to discuss, blessed glory in days of unanimity. [Full Review in Spanish]

Gripping and hilarious satire of our media-obsessed age.

However you view it, this three-part series is thought-provoking and very well written, with its final episode, The Entire History Of You, a heart-breaking triumph.

Ingeniously cast, with suspenseful and often complicated plots, the episodes vary in tone from horrific to comic, but most share certain themes.

Each segment on this first season is the perfect blend of satire, grimness and mirror to our society. All very different but all very close to how we live and interact recently.
