quick review: BLACK MIRROR S01E01- the national anthem

I’ve started watching a show from the BBC called Black Mirror. So far it’s two seasons, 3 shows per season.  It’s a great show in the best tradition of science fiction that takes technology and culture and mixes them in an intelligible and entertaining way. It asks interesting questions, gives us near futures that could be (and sometimes already are), and doesn’t flinch to show us the results.

So the first show of the first season is called “The National Anthem”. All I’ll say is that only the BBC can make something so disgusting respectable.
