I just finished season 4 of Netflix’s Black Mirror but I didn’t think I did at first. I didn’t realize it was 6 episodes long until a day after I watched the 6th episode. For it to be short, it still was a really good season. Here are my top 3 episodes of Black Mirror season 4.
WARNING: SMALL SPOILERS AHEAD
Hang the DJ
My favorite episode was a tie between Hang the DJ and Metalhead but because of the endings of both, Hang the DJ edges Metalhead out of the top spot. This episode is about a dating program that pairs people up for relationships but puts an expiration date on them. I really liked the pacing of this episode and I cared about the main characters and by design, I didn’t care for others. It was a smart episode and ended perfectly.
This episode was so well done. It reminded me of an old scary movie. The story on this episode is about a team of people making an attempt to steal supplies in a post-apocalyptic world. Also, the robots look like roaches and they are killing everyone they can find. Like I said, this is the best episode of the season but the ending, which I won’t spoil was… *Enter shrug emoji*.
This was a clever episode. It starts similar to an episode of Star Trek but, something off. You’re starting off thinking you’re going to root for the captain but that quickly changes when weird things start to happen and a new recruit joins the ship. This episode was smart and its a great start to the season.
