Charlie Brooker, the writer of E4's Dead Set, returns with a suspenseful, satirical three-part mini-series that taps into collective unease about our modern world.

The National Anthem - the least sci-fi, in that it's set very much in the present day. Inspired by news events that get whipped up in the social networks and Twitter, and everything feels like it's rattling slightly out of control...

15 Million Merits - (co-written with Konnie Huq) is set in a dystopian, sarcastic version of the future, in which everyone is compelled to live a life of physical drudgery, and the only real means of escape is by entering a kind of talent show, of a type which may seem familiar to visitors.

In Memoria (written by Jesse Armstrong). You know when you have an argument, and everyone's fantasised about being able to rewind and go, 'Here's what you said earlier,' or 'Look how you embarrassed me' or what have you? Well, this is set in a world where everybody has got the ability to do that - you've got the equivalent of Sky+ for your head, so that you can rewind and replay your visual feed.

 Haunting television

| | See all Toyznthehood's reviews (1)

I just watched the final episode of Black Mirror on Channel 4 and have immediately pre-ordered this.

Three stories set in different futures look at the dark side of today's society and offer a glimpse of what might happen. All three stories are haunting and you'll be thinking about them for sometime after viewing. I want this set mainly to be able to share it with my friends and hear their thoughts.

Well-written, well-acted and thought-provoking, Charlie Brooker provides us with a breath of fresh air from the mass produced televisual fare we're used to. It's not for the faint-hearted, especially the subject matter of the first episode (The National Anthem) and neither does it spell it's message out in block capitals.

Watch this and you will never see Twitter, Facebook or the X Factor in the same way again.

 Disturbing, funny and thought provoking

I've not seen the third and final episode of this series, which has been excellent so far. Being a fan of Brooker's writing and his other foray into TV writing, 'Dead Set', this was an absolute joy to watch. The first episode's plot will ring a bell with anyone who has read Brooker's columns, and while it initially starts out amusing it quickly takes a turn to highlight the desperation and ultimately the degrading nature of having to do something because the social networking side of the internet has forced you into a corner. The second episode is set in an almost '1984' style world, where everyone aspires to appear on Hot Shots, a gameshow which is a parody of our own present day obsession with X Factor, Britain's Got Talent et al. The final programme, about everyone having memories recorded and available to play back whenever we choose, looks set to be another conversation-starter, and I sincerely hope another series of this is commissioned. Perhaps not one for everyone, but if you like your satire strong, your comedy dark and your plots keeping you guessing, this is very much recommended.
