Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror is totally brilliant and Season 3’s first episode, Nosedive, is utterly essential viewing:
Seriously, if you haven’t watched any of this amazing series yet I’d highly recommend giving it a go (all of it, right from Season 1: Episode 1). There’s not been a single dud in all the episodes I’ve watched thus far; in fact, they’ve all been brilliant.
Nosedive, however, hits so close to home for me personally that’s it’s actually pretty terrifying and heartbreaking at the same time, and you’ll get exactly what I mean when you watch it, especially if you’re part of any kind of popular “social” media site or whatever, which we basically all are at this point.
I’m off to check out the other Season 3 episodes on Netflix; can’t wait to see what else this amazing series has in store for me. . . .
