Critic Reviews for Black Mirror: Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

Black Mirror offers a mature Twilight Zone-like viewing experience that is both entertaining and disturbingly captivating.

What makes the series so powerful is that it doesn't just present another collection of stories where technology turns on us, but where we use technology to turn on -- or tune out -- each other.

For all the show's inventive storytelling, its true provocation is its righteous outrage, which shares something with Mike White's whistle-blower series Enlightened, although it's overlaid with a dark filter.

The six one-hour episodes, spread over two seasons, are cynical, searing, shockingly good -- and often disturbing. Watch this show, but don't binge-watch this show.

Audience Reviews for Black Mirror: Season 1



Super Reviewer


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.
