48. "I don't like Black Mirror as Sci-Fi, I enjoy it as quality story telling..." In response to In response to 8
if that makes sense
the futures they build don't seem very interesting to me, maybe it's because most are "near-distant futures"
but I have really enjoyed a number of the episodes because they come off like exaggerated versions of our world, and the pacing of the narratives are very well done: quality character reavels, world building, ratcheting up the tension, hiding vital info from the viewer until just the right moment. craft-wise, so good
outside of the ending this was a fun ass ep to watch because it felt just like how some folk act already. AND how many of us perform various identities online
i mean that like-scale to get an apt, that's basically how credit scores fuck people in our world right now.
so I guess I look at the show like parables more than Sci-Fi which makes the title Black Mirror so apt
