It's quite an achievement when a TV show carves such a name for itself that entire stories and situations can be described as "Black Mirror-y". Trump's bid for presidency (as predicted by The Waldo Moment) is Black Mirror-y. David Cameron's pig controversy is Black Mirror-y. An AI interacting with the Internet and becoming a Neo Nazi sexbot is Black Mirror-y, and so on.
It's with these expectations that we go into the new series, now on Netflix, produced with a higher budget and a star studded cast. Does it retain the same cynicism and pessimism? Is it still quintessentially British? Do the increased amount of episodes still have consistently high quality across the board?
The answer - not really.
But does that make this series weak?
