Are You Watching BLACK MIRROR on Netflix?

I tried watching Netflix's sci-fi tech series, BLACK MIRROR, last season, and just couldn't get into it. But I don't think I was in the head space to really immerse myself in the narrative (because honestly, I don't even think I remember what I saw). In any case, the anthology series is returning for a third season and Netflix has released a really intriguing trailer that definitely speaks to our digital dependency.

More on the series:

Created and written by Brooker, Black Mirror taps into our collective unease with the modern world and each stand-alone episode is a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm - a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us.

This third season boasts A-listers including Bryce Dallas Howard, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (who's also impressive in Netflix's other series, Easy), Malachi Kirby (Roots), and more. Joe Wright (Atonement, Pan) and Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane) also direct two of the episodes, while Rashida Jones continues to be amazing as a co-writer on an episode titled "Nosedive."

Watch the trailer:

BLACK MIRROR returns October 21 on Netflix. Will you be watching?
