Black Mirror is a British television series that features technology-based themes that examine dark and satirical aspects of modern society. The unanticipated consequences of new technologies are the basis for each episode.

From the deployment of drones as weapons, farcical news events, using genetically modified bees for pollination, or the use of social media sites for personal shaming, the stories explore the psychological implications of using media and technology to injure rather than help society. Each episode is excellently staged and scripted to depict an all-to-real version of what could happen if the control of technology or media falls into the hands of evil perpetrators with nefarious intentions.

Netflix commissioned a third season from the author, Charlie Booker, and I hope they produce more seasons. An excellent show that I highly recommend. I can't wait to binge-watch the next season.
