Critic Reviews for Black Mirror Season 3

All Critics (62) | Top Critics (19)

It's probably the scariest series you'll ever watch but not in the serial killer, bloods, guts and gore vein.

The defining quality of the new season is... a consuming interest in online humiliation and how the internet has enabled and accelerated public judgment and derision.

This antiseptic, pastel-coloured Stepford-cum-Brave New World is superbly and thought-provokingly drawn, a ring of hell barely distinguishable from good old 2016.

Not all the episodes are created equal, but even the lesser installments give the series a sheen of impressive physical and mental athleticism.

The very best aspect of Black Mirror, the thing that makes the show so compelling, is that Brooker and his collaborators have developed a real knack for taking these seemingly far-flung narratives and making them feel extremely relatable.

This season's batch of Black Mirror episodes are more consistently compelling than ever. It's tough to say exactly why, because so much of the shocking energy in each episode comes from plot twists it would be criminal to reveal in advance.

Not knowing what you're going to get is part of the thrill with Black Mirror - a show whose stories contain the loose connective tissue of how technology and society may be a toxic relationship.

Feb 7, 2019 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

Overall, this new crop of Black Mirror - which all but doubles the show's total count before this - is better than ever.

The series's third season ups the ante on the horrors that come with our addiction to technology, parceling out scares with social-media rankings, virtual-reality games, invasion of privacy, and online harassment.

Black Mirror limits the margin of error by twisting the structure of the season itself, so that San Junípero... rises as the story that encompasses all the others. [Full review in Spanish]

This special episode, White Christmas, played differently from the structure of seasons past with mixed results. Though the stories are still superb, sarcastic and with plenty of food for thought, by making them all part of a single "story" made them feel a bit loose and disjointed at times, with some characters getting the short end of the stick, namely Oona Chaplin's character that I was quite enjoying but never had time to shine. Still, it's great television for the most part. A shame that it doesn't happen more often.
