Dark, disturbing and dazzling,
This review is from: Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)At the time of me writing this, there's a single bad review which seems to be based on the shows failure to make the reviewer laugh. Was this ever billed as comedy? If so, that billing passed me by. Obviously, it's a question of taste, but I thought Black Mirror was disturbing and thought provoking in equal measure. I think running it down as too dark or not funny is like bemoaning the believability of your average Sly Stallone movie. It's missing the point.
If bleak, distopian drama which obliquely comment on the modern world is your bag, you'll appreciate this slice of inspired genius from the consistently inspiring Brooker.
