If you’re a fan of the science fiction genre and haven’t watched Black Mirror… what are you doing? The British anthology series follows different stories in each episode about the dangers of technology and various social issues.

From a VR horror video game that goes deeper than imagined to a Prime Minister being forced to have sex with a pig on television, and even an interactive special, there’s so much to unpack in Black Mirror. You truly have to see it to believe it! The acting is fantastic and the plot twists are unreal. It’s no surprise Black Mirror has been a favorite amongst award shows, with the sci-fi-horror picking up six Emmy Award wins and multiple nominations.

Six seasons down and not every episode is as strong as others (or even every season) but it’s still a show worth watching and one of Netflix’s best. In need of something twisty and thought-provoking? Start watching Black Mirror now!

Verdict: WATCH
