In this pandemic period, Black Mirror seems more relatable than ever. But, Black Mirror Season 6 would see some huge changes after the current crisis. From its very first season, it has been showing the darker side of the real world. It has portrayed people’s concerns and fears they have in the Digital Era. It has also addressed some sociopolitical issues that would encounter in the near future. Some of its episodes often warned people that how tech-addiction can impact their life. But, they were all before the pandemic.
The last season has addressed the current tech-addition that people faced nowadays. It has portrayed virtual reality, celebrity culture, and social media influence. However, the previous season has gained huge popularity on Netflix. But, it still left behind to match with its older episodes like “Hang the DJ” and more. Well, earlier, it depicted the possibility that could happen in the future. However, after the current health crisis, the real-life has turned into a horror story. Now, it would be interesting how Black Mirror Season 6 addresses and deal with the current situation.
Black Mirror Season 6: Some Changes In The Structure
Since 2018, Black Mirror has released only three episodes instead of releasing ten-episode series. Perhaps it could be best for the audience to watch Black Mirror’s dark episodes with a few clauses. As it would be too much for the audience to handle full ten-episodes. So, it’s better to weekly binge over one-hour episodes. It would help people to get slowly to enjoy whatever comes next in the darker world.
