Review: Black Mirror

Black_Mirror_1My latest British sci-fi obsession on Netflix Instant is Black Mirror, a dark science-fiction anthology series that recently added its second season to Netflix Instant.

Black Mirror is like The Twilight Zone, brought forward to the age of social media and smart phones. Most of the stories are set in a very recognizable near future, with one or two tricky technologies that have evolved from current technology and subtly broken the society in “chaf”Charlie some way. The first episode, “The National Anthem,” could easily take place today, with characters inspired by Kate Middleton and British PM David Cameron. “Fifteen Million Merits” is the furthest afield. It seems to take place after an energy crisis that reshaped society into Brave New World plus The X-Factor, gamification, and porn ad pop-ups. Continue reading

Review: Snuff Box

Snuff Box coverIs it weird when I end up listening to the soundtrack way, way more than I watch the show?  Perhaps, but I’m kind of addicted to Matt Berry’s score for Snuff Box.  Of course, this isn’t saying that the actual TV show is bad or, well, even anything less that awesome.  It’s just that damned theme song.  It’s so friggin’ CATCHY.  I keep humming to myself “you thought it was gold/but it was bronze” OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER again.  Luckily, the US DVD collection of the complete series of Snuff Box comes with a CD of the music from the show.  Or, I suppose, the CD of the soundtrack comes with a DVD of the series.  Either way.  But you’re more likely to find it in the DVD section, so let’s go with that.
