EW.com calls this "the best sci-fi show you've never seen," and "this generation's Twilight Zone." I agree wholeheartedly. Stop whatever you're watching and check this out on Netflix. It's a British series that holds nothing back. I've seen only the first 3 episodes - the 2nd is a little slow, but #1 and #3 are outstanding.

The first episode is pretty dark and cynical compared to others, but they're all good. The Christmas special is on today, IIRC.

I'm quite fond of the first episode of season 2, Be Right Back - great sci fi concept.

After taking a break to watch other stuff, I'm back to Black Mirror. Murrin, I agree 100% about "Be Right Back." It's my favorite episode thus far.

I just started watching it, and thought the first episode was good on social commentary, but because of what the kidnapper had asked, couldn't tell if it was the show for me.
Second episode was fantastic. Haunting and surprising, very much loved it.
Started ep 3 last night, but fell asleep almost immediately, because I was tired. I'll have to start it over.

Oh good. I keep trying to get back to this show. I started the third season and still was loving it. But these days, there are so many damn shows I want to watch and no time to do so that one you do not have to keep up with as every episode is self-contained tends to take a back burner to everything else. Especially when it isn't as easy to consume as comedy.
