From the descriptions of the episodes it looks likes a simple tale but the series is known to present the dark side of technology in each scenario. Ever since the show first aired it has captivated audiences with its dark take on the technology we take for granted every day and of course showcasing some future tech.

In season 4 of Black Mirror it was hinted that all the episodes are a part of the same universe but that doesn't change the fact that each episode is a story in itself.

In December 2018 Black Mirror launched an interactive episode in the form of Bandersnatch where you, the viewer, had to choose the outcome of the episode by making choices for the protagonist. It wasn’t the first time an interactive story was told and the episode though rich at a conceptual level failed to wow audiences the same way it has done in the past. With the new season featuring 3 one hour long episodes it looks like Black Mirror is going back to the roots that made the show so strong.

Stay tuned as we will bring you our review of the new season soon.
