Anybody watch these? They were on Netflix. Real good, check ‘em out.
You’ll like them.
A show called Black Mirror.
It’s like a modern Twilight Zone. Very well done. Thought provoking. Excellent social commentary.
Sci-fi. It’s got everything!

Here is episode 1, I think. So far,  I have only watched up to the part where a certain demand was placed on the prime minister (of Great Britain, I think).

Looks like my kind of show, also.  (Not because of the particular demand, but because it is so far out.)  I love sci-fi, too.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.

Thanks for the heads up. That was extremely bizarre. When I saw the title, I thought it was this, also bizarre, installation in Greece. I was on a Rick Steve’s tour that went to this island. We had free time and I saw a poster for it. You had to walk a little out of town to this otherwise abandon building.

Oh you’re gonna love these then Tim. The first episode is just a warm-up, and a little askance.

Charlie Brooker is a genius, if you can check out his documentaries ScreenWipe, Newswipe, GamesWipe, and How TV Ruined Your Life. He’s really popular in the UK.

Unfortunately that site is blocked on copyright grounds, in the US, at least. It may be available in the UK.
