Black Mirror


I discovered Black Mirror on Netflix.

Black Mirror is set sometime in the future.  It’s similar to The Twilight Zone in that each episode is like a short, stand alone movie with new characters and a unique story line.

Most episodes are above average to exceptional.  Some are disturbing, some exciting and some deeply moving.  Some, like “San Junipero” are worth a second viewing.

The far out technology acts like a character, driving many of the plots.

But, for me, the best thing about Black Mirror is…a lead character named Nanette!

Nanette Cole in “USS Callister” is smart, brave and gorgeous.  She’s the hero of the episode, using her keen mind and guts to save the day.

Nanette Cole is a sorely needed addition to a world crying out for more Nanette.
