Black Mirror

Anthology show on Netflix. Episodes are hit and miss with oft-revisited concepts and twists, but these are my faves:

1. USS Callister (possibly a back door pilot)
2. Shut Up and Dance
3. White Bear
4. San Junipero (great 80s soundtrack)

The series thrives and inspires imitators despite the mediocre, bleak episodes. Amazing Stories might have lasted longer if viewers were offered the occasional mixed bag to sift through. Hinting at a connected universe probably helps too.

I only started watching it this season although I had watched a few episodes earlier. I think USS Callister was meant to be a back door pilot too, it kind of gave me that impression.

I really liked the 'White Christmas' episode, very bleak but also karmic justice in a way.

Yeah its all connected the episode 'Black Museum' pretty much says as much.
