Technology has transformed the world around us, finding its way into nearly every part of society. But with each new advancement comes a new world of potential risks and fears. Black Mirror plays into these fears, stoking our collective paranoia by asking what if?
As an anthology series, Black Mirror doesn’t have a returning cast or a continuous plot. Instead, each episode stands alone. Dealing more in psychological than physical threats, people may be surprised to see Black Mirror top our list. However, in season 3’s Hated in the Nation, a spine-chilling 387,036 people are killed by ADIs (Autonomous Drone Insects), following the #DeathTo online campaign. Be careful what you tweet.
