Black Mirror, White Christmas

In a mysterious and remote snowy outpost, Matt and Potter, share a Christmas meal together and swap creepy tales of their earlier lives in the outside world.

Matt is a charismatic American trying to bring the reserved, secretive Potter out of his shell. Are both men who they appear to be? Along the way we see Jon Hamm offering an unusual form of romantic guidance to an inexperienced young man, watch Oona Chaplin thrust headlong into a nightmarish world of ‘smart’ gadgetry, and explore what might happen if you could ‘block’ people in real life, just as you can on Facebook or Twitter.

If you haven’t watched Black Mirror yet, well, you should get on that. Charlie Brooker’s sci-fi anthology series is some of the very best science fiction I’ve seen in ages. And hey, isn’t it on Netflix now? You have no excuses.

And to top off the awesomeness that is Black Mirror, they’re doing a Christmas special! I do love me some darkness mixed in with my yuletide cheer.

Black Mirror, White Christmas airs on December 16, 2014 in the UK.
