Black Mirror - Is it just a TV Show?

Unread postby devedani » 21st June, 2018, 6:32 pm

Right, ok. So Black Mirror depicts what horrors could happen if tech advances far enough, but sometimes what good things can happen (See: San Junjpero) I've always been quite attached to Black Mirror. However, I've always took it as a prediction. Because, this could happen in the near future with how fast we're advancing. What are your opinions on this?

hmm i dont see anything like this happening in the near future. a big part of the technology in the show focuses on how it alters our biological systems but irl it's only able to affect it. that being said, I think we're solid few decades from coming anywhere close.

Yes its just a TV show. Its point it to tell interesting stories or make comment on humanity, in much the way that Westworld tends to do. It speaks to an comments on human character, but its no more a prediction of the future than The Simpson's predicting President Trump
