Black Mirror - Anyone watching it?

Locked

This is a netflix original. I started watching it the other day, thought it was new. Some how
I started watching season 3 instead beginning with season 1. It doesn't matter what order
however because each show is different actors and a different tale.

If you are familiar with the old Twilight Zone and how it focused on the mysterious, etc,
'Black Mirror' is kind of like that.

Whoever their writers are for that show, gotta be hard workers and even harder thinkers.
The shows really get everyone thinking.

One of the programs is about people attempting to be happy and perfect and everyone
tries to be nice to everyone so that they will receive a 'like'. Everyone holds their cell
phone out and clicks either a positive or negative when passing someone else or talking
to someone else. What really made this 'social' more interesting is that you could only
buy, shop, mortgage, etc.....all based on your social points. It went to a 5 and if you
fell below a 4.2, you were pretty much a low life. :lol:

Another program, I won't explain it all. I'll just say at the end, the song plays 'Heaven
On Earth' and there is a HUGE building that is full of HUGE computers and millions of
cubby holes. When you die, if you want to live forever (heaven) you can go in a cubby
hole. Or you can die and go no where. Actually what is going in the cubby hole is dna
or some sort of electrical area of your brain. You are really dead but you think you are
alive.

If you ever get a chance to watch 'Black Mirror' do. It really gets you thinking about
what could be in the future.

I'm interested. I’ll find a way to watch this from my earth point...and its entirety will depend in my interpretation on metaphors & story. Thank you for sharing, keeping me away from idleness. :thumbup:
