Critic Reviews for Black Museum

You can certainly see why Brooker decided the individual tales were too thin to sustain a full-length episode - this is a timepasser rather than a gamechanger.

The episode, written by Charlie Brooker, indicts gawkers, ghouls, and the callously vengeful in much the same way "White Bear" did.

Black Mirror has swung for the philosophical fences many times before, but what better parting shot than to consider the weight and nature of a soul?

A (fairly predictable) final twist isn't enough to redeem this one, which now sits among the most skippable Black Mirror episodes ever.

Ultimately, Black Museum is a thoroughly intriguing episode and feels like the perfect ending to the fourth series of Black Mirror.

The unimaginative window dressing is just the beginning, and despite a few bright spots, it lacks the cohesion and ingenuity of previous compendium episodes, and lacks a strong enough identity to distinguish itself from the pack.

An anthology within an anthology, not all work, but they are sufficiently interesting to drive the narrative forward. [Full Review in Spanish]

What happens when an anthology series does an anthology episode? The result is "Black Museum," the season 4 finale, which features three seemingly separate stories being told, only to culminate in a powerful twist.

Once again telling three vignettes within its larger story, "Black Museum" evokes a range of emotions while exploring new hypothetical technologies and digital consciousness.

"Black Museum," or: A Russian nesting doll of every major Black Mirror motif, plus so many hair-pin twists that my brain was rattling at the episode's end.
