Black Mirror Season 5 episode details revealed!
In case you’ve missed it: Season 5 of Black Mirror releases on June 5th! This week, Netflix has provided more details on the 3 episodes, along with trailers for each of them.
It’s safe to say this shorter, star-studded season will continue the show’s tradition of instilling ‘techno-paranoia’ in us. You could see it as criticism of the way technology has blanketed humankind, and how it might grow to endanger them if left unchecked.
‘Smithereens’ features a cab driver with an agenda, who becomes the centre of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control. This episode stars Sherlock’s own Moriarty, Andrew Scott, as said cab driver. How the tables have turned.
In ‘Rachel, Jack and Ashley, Too’, a lonely teenager yearns to connect with her favourite pop star, whose charmed existence might not be as charming as you’d think. Miley Cryus stars in this one, as the pop star with a troubled life.
‘Striking Vipers’ shows two estranged college friends reuniting much later in life, unfortunately triggering a series of events that could alter their lives for good. Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Pom Klementieff star in this mini Marvel vs DC showdown.
If the wait for more Black Mirror is getting to you then I’d suggest rewatching Bandersnatch, the series’ choose-your-own-adventure episode. My advice? Always choose the ‘Netflix’ option if you get the opportunity, it has some amazing results.
