Review of Black Mirror

Largely enjoyable mix of classic anthology elements a bit of Twilight Zone here, Tales Of The Unexpected there, Hammer House of Horror in other places and mix it with a bit o near future tech of Minority Report...it would not surprise me if writer Charlie Brooker is a Philip K Dick fan

IMHO the series starts weak with the premise that a kidnapped princess would lead to a Prime Minister humiliation, weird, different but weak with the main premise being interesting yet implausible - yes suspension of belief is often necessary for a series like this but this was a stretch too far for me

Luckily the series gets better with 3 great episodes - The Entire History Of You - where people can store and replay memories ; White Bear - a Kafka-esque mind f--k where a woman with no memory is being hunted ; and White Christmas a long special containing 3 interlinked stories told by 2 men isolated in a small home during winter

Overall 8/10 - almost as good as the first 2 series of Tales OF The Unexpected which is THE benchmark for anthology shows
