Black Mirror



Black Mirror is a hybrid of The Twilight Zone and Tales of the Unexpected that explores contemporary unease. The three stand-alone dramas will be sharp, suspenseful, satirical tales with a techno-paranoia bent--all audacious ‘what if' stories: some comic, some shocking.

Episode Info

Prev: S03-Special -- White Christmas (Dec/16/2014)


In three interwoven stories, Matt and Potter talk about their lives while celebrating a Christmas dinner at a lonely outpost in the snow. 1) Matt provides a friend with dating advice; 2) a woman makes a computer clone of herself to run her household; and 3) Potter discovers that his girlfriend has "blocked" him from her life.
