Black Mirror’s fourth season is now streaming, and they’re celebrating this latest collection of technological dystopian tales by showing us we don’t really need them...because we’re already living in a technological dystopia. THANKS, NETFLIX.
The video pairs clips from current and past seasons of Black Mirror with the hellish void that was the world in 2017. Human-like robots, fake news, Snapchat filters, a swirling vortex of new gadgets and philosophies that—at least in the eyes of Black Mirror—will lead us to a point of no return. Well, call me psyched for 2018. Granted, their Twitter account also shared a hopeful wish for next year, but the damage is done, man.
Dammit, Netflix, I haven’t even seen your latest collection of horrific short films yet and already I’m scared out of my gourd. Now, if you’ll excuse me, there’s a giant reality-covering blanket that’s calling my name.
