Overall, once more Black Mirror has failed to disappoint and made it worth the two-year wait for a new season.

'Black Mirror' is special. It deserves our time. And it is not for science fiction fans, far from it. It is for anyone who wants stories with different and surprising approaches. [Full Review in Spanish]

Black Mirror is not always subtle and never light viewing, but it remains anchored in beautifully observed truths about how tech amplifies existing anxieties and unhappinesses.
February 7, 2019
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.

Overall, this new crop of Black Mirror - which all but doubles the show's total count before this - is better than ever.
January 17, 2018
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 Junpero... rises as the story that encompasses all the others. [Full review in Spanish]

But overall the clangers are forgivable - even the bad Black Mirror episodes are at least consistently stylish and fun.

Rest assured, the first half of the 12-episode deal that the series executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones made with Netflix is as biting and sometimes unsettling as ever.
November 16, 2017
Do Brooker and Annabel Jones concede that running into the woods to live off the grid might not be the only answer? For once, it sure seems that way.

Despite seemingly every show in the universe being essential and perfect right now, Black Mirror is on the even shorter list of the essential-er and perfect-er.

Brooker's show retains its status as a marvel, hinting at darker and greater things to come.
November 6, 2017
The ideas are for the most part strong, the delivery largely superlative, so jump right in - but be warned, the water's cold. This is the feel-bad hit of the Autumn.

If technology is the great mirror of our era, Black Mirror as a television show is the long gaze into our own reflections.

... while the show isn't quite of the horror genre, the dark themes, twists and suspense lend Black Mirror the status of prime Halloween viewing.

It's a critique of the way this incessant barrage of information stresses our little brains, and of how it enables new manifestations of our need to be loved and liked.
April 19, 2017
Sure it's gone a little bit American and some may see it as having lost that slightly gritty, British tone... But that really doesn't matter - it's as good, if not better, than it ever was. Rarely predictable, always entertaining and leaves you thinking.

Solid and thoughtful.

These are fascinating stories told with imagination and guts, and they demand and reward careful attention.
