Review Black Mirror (2011, tv mini-series)

Black Mirror is a dark science fiction anthology show from the creator of Dead Set.
Each story is unique, with different characters, and different point of views. The link between the 3 stories is technology, and examines our relationship with it.

The Entire History of You In this family drama, people can re-watch their memories and show it to others through a device. The story focus on the obsession of a man, who uses the memory-viewer, to find out if his girlfriend cheated on him.

Overall, this is a clever and well written show, an anthology in the vein of The Twilight Zone and an amazing satire on today’s society.
Do not miss this real dark and twisted vision of our world.
