Black Mirror Explained: A Shared Universe

Black mirror is earth from a multiverse perspective. Every episode is from a different earth sharing some aspects of the other realities. They probably all started off the same with decisions and actions making the changes we see.

I thought black mirror (the title) was meant to be a broken screen of whatever device you're using and with no device to keep you distracted you look upon the broken screen and the true image of your surroundings is reflected on it (which is the show black mirror).

we've actually come very VERY close with "Nosedive". I forget the name of the company now, but I know there was at least one instance a couple years ago where this one start-up was trying to create an app that indeed gave PEOPLE "ratings". Not their account, not the quality of the photos they posted, but literally actually you yourself as a human being. What ratings could YOU achieve.

As much as I adore Charlie Brooker (and his Weekly/Yearly Wipes, long before BM), he does have some kind of fixation of freakishly horrific, monster-like spiders that I could VERY much do completely without lol... First in "Playtest", that comes so goddamn fast if you didn't already know it was coming there's no way to look away in time to not have that image seared in your head for awhile. And then, only very mildly not as bad, whatever the hell they called that creature in "USS Callister". That's first on the one planet they beam down to, then when one of the crew members gets changed into it when they piss him off. thing's got like a dozen damn eyes. I mean to say I have a "phobia' doesn't even come remotely close lol

Is "15 Million Merits" a critique against post-modernism? Jean Baudrillard's book, Simulacra and Simulation, wrestles with the question: What happens when our world becomes fully post-modern (aka a deconstructed/defragmented world with no objective truth)? He argues that people will immerse themselves in the media and in, what he calls, "hyperconsumerism." In the show, Bing's speech tackles the false sense of identity which is attained by buying things that are "not really there." He also longs for the "truth" and "authenticity." Despite this, he becomes engulfed by that which he stood up against. Any comments?

I had a theory; The digital clones from the "SS Callister" episode are actually the hackers in "Shut Up and Dance". They've escaped the Infinity video game universe and are now free to roam the internet and do what they please. They know how to connect with the outside world, send text messages, talk on the phone. They decide they want to be able to help the real world in any way they can so they hack devices of some terrible people and blackmail them. Eventually turning them into the police.

Wait a second ... Does this mean 15 Million Merits, one of my favourite Black Mirror episodes, and IMO one of the most intelligent criticisms of our society was nothing but a stupid Big Brother type of talent show instead of a dystopian world in itself? I rather take it s a thing of its own thank you very much :(

Vor 2 Monate
LisaSimpson2
LisaSimpson2

So you would rather think of the world in '15 Million Merits' as a REAL dystopian world, rather than a digital dystopian world? And the talent show as REAL, rather than just a digital test/game/simulation of some kind? But why? And what is the difference? I'm genuinely interested thanks (oh but bear in mind, this subject is already making my head implode with all the implications and possibilities!) what do people think of this episode? It's either our real world dystopian future where human beings (or at least some) are being exploited and enslaved to be used by the media for entertainment? Or it could be the real world has simply manufactured this program to "farm-rear" these human beings for entertainment purposes or perhaps harnessing the energy they produce on the bikes for something else (using the kinetic energy and turning it into fuel/energy for something for which we'll never know?) and the talent show is all just a ruse to get them competing and pedalling away on those bikes? But I see it as more simply holding the mirror up to today's media climate/culture. I must say I love the Black Mirror episode '15 Million Merits' too. It's always been one of my favourite Black Mirror episodes (for the same reason you mentioned "it's probably one of the most intelligent criticisms of our society today" with all the phoney talent shows and pathetic reality TV shows these days exploiting people for entertainment or sex). I just love it's message/meaning at it's heart and how it holds a mirror up to all that media fakery and sex industry bullshit. When the girl finally gets a rare opportunity to get on the X Factor-like show, little does she know, she's like a lamb or a deer being thrown wolves. I have so much anger for how they turn this pure, innocent, beautiful, naive real-life girl and they take her beautiful singing talent/humanity/heart and soul that she has... and turn her into another vapid, mindless, porn industry slave and all in the name of entertainment/sex. It's disgusting and so true to life/society/media. This isn't the future this is now! And just think, how will the media and powers that be use technology/social media to exploit human beings for entertainment, profit or something far more sadistic in the future. It's a frightening thought.... :-D

Prior to Netflix acquisition, the series had only 3 episodes per season and it had only those first two seasons. S1E1 - political subject (prime minister / pig) S1E2 - reality TV show (singing performance) S1E3 - personal drama (memory gadget in the brain) S2E1 - personal drama (digital copy of self / android) S2E2 - reality TV show (white bear justice park) S2E3 - political subject (the waldo bear) I like to think that the themes in the first two seasons are mirror-sequenced.

Amazing analysis minus equating Waldo to Trump, I think it has more to do with how easy it is to start a political movement these days without having clear principles set or individuals being influenced not based on actual reality as long as you have an effective narrative with a relatable representative of that movement such as Waldo can blind individuals from what's really behind the political mask all politicians wear.

I think you're thinking too deep about it. I think Charlie Booker probably put most of the easter eggs in as an after thought. It's not some kind of deeply thought out plot that the universes connect, it's just a case of "haha let's have that newspaper from season 1 here, see if people notice."
