Audience Reviews for Black Mirror: Season 1

  • Jun 09, 2021
    It is a futuristic concept, and it is something new and fresh, but also unusual, weird and a little bit creepy. I liked the concept of the series, the cast and the environment in every episode. However, it is a little bit complicated and strong, but I may give a second chance to this show at next season.

    New and fantastic. The UK does really great programming. Short season but every episode makes the audience think. I really love this series.
  • Mar 22, 2021
    Dark, edgy, and unpredictable. Love it.

    favorite ep is 3 great acting and genius writing.

    "15 Million Merits" is one of the best episodes I've ever seen on TV. Very creative and thought-provoking, answering questions of why do we sell out and become a cog in the machine, why are we so reluctant to appreciate truth, why do we water down something special into something bland and sterile, and is there any authenticity left. The bikes are an entire metaphor for our society. "National Anthem" is one of the most biting black humor I've seen on TV in some time, and great commentary on what the media does and why. It explains why we all rubberneck at horrific car accidents. "Entire History of You" is okay and worth a watch, but weaker than the other two

    Black Mirror is a thought-provoking foray into humanity's inhumanity, with technology as an ever-present backdrop.

    What a refreshing thing it is! Very innovative ideas, great cinematography and all the episodes make you think about what the future will bring to us

    Awesome episodes. One about extortion. The second is the biking for currency episode. The third is the rewind your memories episode with a crazy storyline about the guy discovering his wife was cheating on him
  • Nov 18, 2020
    DON'T WATCH EP-1 FIRST! It's the most intense so save it for last once you've warmed up to the series. A pretty good starting season.

    1. The National Anthem - 4/5 2. 15 Million Merits - 4/5 3. The Entire History of You - 5/5
