Synopsis: A television anthology series that shows the dark side of life and technology (source)
I was looking for a new tv show to indulge in because I feel like tv shows right now are just bad or they are waiting on a next season. So I saw this come up on my Netflix recommended so many times that I finally decided to give it a shot. My English teacher also mentioned it a few times, saying that it scared her to almost never use the computer again.
I tried watching it and the first episode was, no offense, but not that great.
I continued to watch it so that maybe it’ll get better. I started to realize that they aren’t connected so just as a heads-up you should watch season 2, episode 2 and season 3, episode 2 (those two are my favorite). I continued to watch it and honestly it grew on me! It was pretty amazing to have to think about the meaning behind the endings and try to figure out your own theory about the tv show.
I definitely recommend it to anyone who likes sci-fi or like anything that has to do with future technology. This is one of those tv shows that you can kind of like, because nothing is connected so they’re all standalone that you can rewatch without having to rewatch the entire tv show.
I always recommend it to my friends because I honestly think that they all have unique lessons to them that can be applied in everyday life.
Its messages and episodes are all very unique and always has some sort of twist, which makes it unpredictable. I tried to predict every single ending, but I only got one of them right. It’s almost disturbing to know the twist but it definitely has a moral that one should always go by throughout their life.
Unfortunately, I don’t have much to say for this tv show without giving away everything. But if you are “iffy” about watching it, definitely go for it and watch s2e2 and s3e2.
