10 Times ‘Black Mirror’ Made Us Rethink Our Lives Entirely

Black Mirror shows the dark possibilities of what technology could do. Each episode tells a different story, and shines a light on what the world has become. The sad thing is the show only has to drum up the drama a tad to make it a thriller. Here are ten times the show was almost too real.

1. That time millions of people jumped on a public shaming hashtag without any thought about the consequences.

2. When the show pointed out that we’d all probably be accomplices to a crime if it meant free entertainment.

9. If it’s not too far off that a robot can copy our speech and more from what we post online, then maybe we’re posting too much…

10. What we post online is forever, so we might one day regret the things we’ve said.
