Title: Black Mirror (2011)

Anyone else here see Charlie Brooker's dark, satirical mini-series on C4? Particularly enjoyed the last entry, The Entire History of You – had a real Ballard feel to it.

Watched the first two, have yet to watch the last one. Enjoyed, but with some reservations; too many implausible plot points - I think Brooker makes a better critic than screenwriter.

The last one is the best by far.

Thought Dead Set was good fun.

The first one was my favourite. What's not to like about a Prime Minister being forced to fuck a pig?  ::)
The second one I thought was over long. Everything that they wanted to say could have been done in half an hour easily.
Third one was very good, but could have done with more humour.
