Black Mirror (Netflix): this season 6 contains two of the best episodes of the series!

Black Mirror's sixth season has been made available on the Netflix platform as of June 15th, Thursday. Can I sample this new cuvée? Our response.

Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror anthology, which recently enjoyed exploring the ChatGPT craze, is now back on Netflix with a sixth season comprised of five episodes, which has been made available on the streaming service as of Thursday, May 15. The performers were late for their roles in this series, which continues to examine how technology may be misused and how we relate to images. Thus, a procession of actors from past Schitt's Creek episodes—Salma Hayek Pinault, Aaron Paul, Kate Mara, Josh Hartnett, Ben Barnes, Rory Culkin, and many more—appear in these five new chapters.

What is the subject matter of Black Mirror's five season 6 episodes?

Black Mirror is back with 5 undisclosed episodes after only giving 3 episodes the previous season (moving back to 2019 anyway). The first episode of "Joan is Horrible" features Joan (Annie Murphy), who learns that the biggest streaming service in the world is airing a series that, according to the menu, is based on her own life. The implications for Joan, who likewise does not understand how she ended up as the "heroine" of her biography, are severe as soon as the subscribers turn out to be addicted. By following a young couple who are producing a documentary on a tragic incident that occurred in a small Scottish village, "Loch Henry" explores the popular true crime genre.

"My Heart for Life" is set in 1969, when two astronauts (Aaron Paul and Josh Hartnett) had the option of connecting to a server that would allow them to live their lives on Earth through robotic counterparts. An option that would prevent them from going insane, make the long voyage comfortable, and provide them with some sense of connection to other people. Following a terrible accident, "Mazey Day" follows a young actress who is pursued by paparazzi. Finally, "Demon 79" is set in the late 1970s in England and has a young salesperson who is forced to choose between committing terrible crimes and preventing a catastrophe.

Should we watch this season of Black Mirror? Our viewpoint

An anthology frequently experiences qualitative gaps between its episodes that are unrelated to one another. Black Mirror, the genre's leader, is still subject to this affliction. With panache, mischief, and intelligence, the first episode, "Joan is Horrible," starring Anne Murphy, Salma Hayek (in a confusing number of self-mocking jokes), and Cate Blanchett (kind of), starts hostilities. She plays with her own nature by choosing to parody streaming services, accurately pointing out and biting the excesses of a system that she supports. Additionally, this episode has a happy and serene ending, which is incredibly uncommon in Black Mirror. Playing on the current trend toward true crime films, "Loch Henry" makes an unarguable comment while never really going beyond it, finally revealing itself to be largely anecdotal.

" My Heart for Life" is definitely the most accomplished, richest, and most ambitious episode of this season (from a technological, emotional, and philosophical point of view), even if it suffers from some harmful lengths. "Mazey Day" is certainly the worst chapter of this new vintage, collapsing under the ease of its writing and the superficiality of its speech. Finally, with its horrible swerves and its barely veiled parallels to Hammer (this fabled English studio, specialized in strange and horror pictures, whose heyday was in the 60s and 70s), "Demon 79" is a true trip, but not only: his political context is as contemporary as it is devastating.
