Summary Black Mirror is an austere, darkly comic series of three different dramas set in various dystopian versions of future reality. Over the last ten years, technology has transformed almost every aspect of society before anyone has stopped to question it. In every home, on every desk, in every person's palm is a plasma screen, a monitor, a smartphone - a black mirror of our 21st century existence.A twisted parable for the Twitter age, Black Mirror taps into our collective unease about the modern world. These three stand-alone dramas are sharp, suspenseful, satirical tales that are equal parts clever, shocking and disturbing.This second episode is a satire on entertainment shows and our insatiable thirst for distraction set in a sarcastic version of a future reality. In this world, everyone is confined to a life of strange physical drudgery. The only way to escape this life is to enter the 'Hot Shot' talent show and pray you can impress the judges. This episode stars Rupert Everett, Julia Davis, Daniel Kaluuya and Jessica Brown Findlay. (From the UK) (Drama Series) (Part 2 of 3) MA (A,S) CC Follow the conversation on Twitter #blackmirror
