Black Mirror: Season 5 Reviews

  • Feb 20, 2021

    I think at this point the show is losing its impact and relevance. Smithereens was frustratingly bad, mostly because it had a great idea and fell apart due to poor direction. It was completely full of holes and poorly acted (with the exception of Topher Grace). Ashley Too was pretty stupid, but I actually kind of enjoyed it and found myself rooting for the girls. I chalk that up as a bad show/movie that I liked anyways (we all have those). I don't know if Black Mirror is going to continue in the seasons forward, but it doesn't seem like it has anything more to say

    Black Mirror often hits the nail on the head, but this season is pure mediocrity.

    It wasn't as mind bending as many other seasons but it's still interesting. the 1st episode is the one that i think the most revolutionary

    Black mirror is my favorite show, and this season was pretty good. The only reason this isn't getting a full 5 stars is because there were only 3 episodes and they weren't as "mind blowing" as other seasons have been. In a lot of my favorite black mirror episodes, there is a "twist", in this season there wasn't much of that. I still loved it though.

    As a huge fan of Black Mirror Season 5 was a complete let down. From season length (3 episodes) to the content of the episodes. The Miley Cyrus episode waa probably the best, which is saying something. The other two were just slow and weird. Weird not in a good way.

    Smithereens was the only good episode, but even it fell short of black mirror's usual standards. BM used to leave you thinking existentially about technology and its impact, but this season the first episode was basically just a soft core porn vaguely framed around the idea of virtual reality gaming, and the third is genuinely just a disney film with an equally elementary plot. The budget that was spent for big shot actors was not worth losing the writing quality writing the show used to have

    Not great. None of these episodes are particularly interesting.

    Still one of the smartest shows out there. Not every episode is 5 stars. But overall this series continues to be thought provoking and well crafted. I always look forward to seeing what BM will do next.

    Episode "Smithereens" was really good, but the other two were kind of stupid.

    I can't separate ratings for a series like this. All seasons get 5 stars. One of the best series ever made... wildly creative.
