News & Interviews for Black Mirror: Season 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.
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.
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
Audience Reviews for Black Mirror: Season 2
You should start this season from the last episode to the first when it comes to quality. I found The Waldo Moment to be extremely underwhelming on a near flawless run of the 5 episodes that preceded it. The substance is there, but it never goes to the next level. And Waldo's not that funny. White Bear has an amazing concept and execution for the most part, that drags and repeats itself a bit too much towards the end, but the main draw is Lenora Crichlow which turns on a very annoyingly hysterical role. Talk about overacting... Then we have the fantastic Be Right Back, the most human and tear-jerking episode so far. Fantastically paced, with a very affecting performance by Hayley Atwell and a simple but great sci-fi setting, very unnerving on how close we are to it.
