I think it’s a fairly safe bet to say that every genre fan and many non-genre fans love the classic TV show The Twilight Zone. It had a way of capturing the fears of its audience and distilling them into entertaining parables, most of which still hold up perfectly to this very day. The show has been revived a couple of times with mixed results at best, and for years it’s seemed that the magic the original show managed to conjure was all but gone.
Black Mirror, created by Charlie Brooker, originally debuted on Channel 4 in the UK back in 2011 to immediate critical acclaim. It only had 3 episodes in that first season with another 3 following in 2013 and a special in 2014, but they were all amazing punches to the gut and brain. Netflix was smart enough to pick up those seven episodes then showed brilliance by ordering a third season of 6 new episodes to be released on October 21.
A trailer for the upcoming new episodes has just been released. After watching it below, you should do yourself a favor and check out those original 7 episodes. They’re already on Netflix and it’ll give you something to pass the time until the new season begins.
