Watch Black Mirror

This is an edgy and darkly satirical anthology thriller series from the UK. Each stand alone episode is a short look into a future that is almost upon us. The stories focus on an aspect of modern living, primarily our increasingly double edged relationship with personal technology and the media in the Internet age. The series is steeped in science fictional paranoia in near future scenarios that range from the ability to "block" people in real life the same way you would online to using implant technology to store and replay memories.

  • Insecure office worker Lacie lives in a happy, smiley, status-obsessed nightmare world. Her old friend Naomi is one of society's elites, and Lacie may have found a way to join her...
