Each step we take towards technological advancement we continue to wield a double-edged sword. We are taking strides with every piece of technology that we create, but it comes at a cost. The more we connect to these computer hardwares the more we disconnect from society. It’s an investment that has the potential to hinder the way we socialize with one another if we continue to go down this path.
A man named Charlie Brooker decided to create scenarios of what it could be like if we let technology control our lives and thus the show Black Mirror came into fruition. Black Mirror is a British anthology series that portrays predictions of a future influenced by technological advancements and our behavior towards them. And recently Black Mirror teamed up with Netflix to create its third season.
What’s appealing about this show is the way it tackles the topic of future technology and the dark side of it all. Many people only focus on getting their hands on the latest gadgets without taking into consideration the consequences that we can face overall. Technology at its current state has the potential to blur the line between what can be done and what should be done and Black Mirror does a great job at showing that blurred line.
Feel free to watch the trailer for its third season below if you’d like to find out more about the show. If you’re interested in giving Black Mirror a watch, it is now available on Netflix.
