I know, I know… “If you don’t have enough time stop watching TV.”
But I would be missing something if in all these emails on influences that have changed my perspective, I didn’t mention Black Mirror.
This British science fiction series, picked up by Netflix, is a collection of stand-alone episodes on how technology could impact how we live.
It’s creative, shockingly relatable, and more than anything, thought-provoking.
I have only seen a few episodes, the ones recommended to me by friends. In my opinion, these deserve a watch and a conversation:
“San Junipero” (Series 3, Episode 4)
"Nosedive" (Series 3, Episode 1)
"The Entire History of You" (Series 1, Episode 3)
I don’t want to say anything else, for fear of spoiling the suspense in each story. But I think you will like them — or at the very least appreciate them as social commentary on modern-day society and where it might be headed.
