Surprised I haven't a topic on this. Anyone watching Black Mirror on Netflix? Kind of a modern day Twilight Zone. This first episode of S4 titled USS Callister is pretty awesome.

Nice to see Meth Damon getting work after Breaking Bad. He also had a big role in Fargo a few years ago didn't he?

Some of them are pretty damned grim, though.  That one about the insurance investigator . . . geez.

Great show, I've been a fan for a couple of years now. My favorite ep was the one about the soldiers who were literally programmed to see the "enemy" as monsters. Great stuff.

Oh, and if anyone is curious what "Black Mirror" directly alludes to, just look at your phone or tablet screen when it's off. It's also been stated that all of the episodes ae connected in some way. There are some fan theories out there that are worth reading that attempt to explain that, worth a search if you're ever bored.

The same pop song is often played in the background.  Not sure if it was written for the show?

All the little nods to past episodes in Black Museum were cool.

Just finished Season 2's "runner" episode with the lady on the run being phone-filmed by everyone.  Very good.
