Black Mirror is a science fiction anthology TV show created by Charlie Brooker, better known for his wit, love of Adam Curtis docs, and the immortal Brass Eye. He also wrote what is, in my opinion, a far superior treatment of televised zombies with Dead Set.

Black Mirror does what Brass Eye and Dead Set, as well as his other works, already exhibit: a reflection of our own darkness, whether individual, technological or societal. The anthology contains stories that stare back at us, exploring human nature and are set in near future.

I highly recommend you catch an episode or two, as each has a different cast and a different setting, slicing through our preconceptions and exposing the grime underneath the dirt.
