The twixtmas gap allowed me to binge watch the latest season of Black Mirror (Netflix), giving me another chance to look into the dystopian vision of Charlie Brooker.
Once again, some entertaining and thought-provoking episodes. I specifically liked ‘Hang the DJ’, with its terrifying look at dating and relationships, controlled by algorithms. I also loved the ‘rise of the robots’ view of Metalheads starring the always amazing Maxine Peake.
The only episode I didn’t completely love was ‘USS Callister’, which seemed to go down the well-trodden path of ‘technology in the wrong hands’, which left me a bit non-plussed.
