Black Mirror: Series One, Episode One: The National Anthem

The future’s so bright, you gotta wear shades? Think again. In fact, don’t bother wasting the effort and just allow Black Mirror to show you the path we humans are on. Bleak? Tough. Get over it, or make changes. The first series of Black Mirror was first released on Channel 4 in the UK in 2011, and series two followed in 2012. After a brief hiatus, and backed by popular demand, the program has returned for series three, which you can find on Netflix now. As the world appears to be going crazy we thought we’d have a detailed look at Black Mirror from start to finish, episode by episode, starting with ‘The National Anthem’ (series one, episode one). The writing is terrific, the storylines feel familiar in so much as we’re looking not centuries into the future, but at our immediate or not too distant future. You’ll scratch your head, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and then sit in silence. If you like good television and aren’t afraid to take a disturbing look in the mirror, please join us as we throw ourselves headfirst into the alarming world of Black Mirror. We also preview the new Gross Net album, Quantitative Easing, with the first track ‘Citadel Ghosts’. The album will be released on November 25, but you can pre-order now, vinyl and/or a digital download.
