Vulture Ranks the Best Black Mirror Episodes #SciFiSunday
Agree or disagree, this list from from Vulture is worth a look.
Anthologies are all the rage these days, from Ryan Murphy’s ever-expanding empire of mini-series to Joe Swanberg’s collection of romance shorts. Yet no program has taken advantage of the elasticity of anthology storytelling quite like Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror, trading pet themes, genres, creative personnel, and tones from one episode to the next. A newfangled, potentially disastrous technology pops up in each installment, giving the series a healthy sense of cohesion, but the four seasons aired so far could not be more all over the map. Political satires and future dystopias, cop procedurals and war dramas, soulless nihilism and life-affirming humanism: If you dislike Black Mirror, perhaps you just haven’t found the right episode.
Such a varied palette of styles and stories means that the series is naturally hit or miss. It delivers far more hits than misses, but hashing out which episode hits hardest can be helpful for a newbie who wants to customize their viewing order. Read on for Vulture’s definitive ranking of all 19 episodes of Black Mirror, from the worst to the best.
