A dark trilogy of twisted tales. 'Black Mirror' is a drama series from Charlie Brooker consisting of three separate self-contained stories.
1. The National Anthem is a political thriller in which the Prime Minister faces a huge dilemma and has to choose between bowing to the pressure of public opinion or following his own moral compass.
2. 15 Million Merits is a satire on entertainment shows. In this world, the only way to escape drudgery is to enter the 'Hot Shot' talent show and just hope you can impress the judges.
3. The Entire History of You is set in an alternate reality where everyone has access to a system which records everything they do, see or hear. You need never forget a face, holiday or night out again... but is that a good thing?
Don't waste a rental, none of the 3 stories is worth watching - very boring and not a new idea in sight.

Deeply thought provoking even if they are a bit far fetched at times. We really enjoyed these and they engendered a lot of conversation about the lives we live and the way the world is moving. Scary really!
