If you haven’t checked out Nerdwriter on Youtube, I suggest you try out the channel. It delves very deeply into several forms of art and analyzes very deeply on what makes them profound. A new video has come out and it looks into the series Black Mirror and what draws people to watch the show.

Check it out:

Black Mirror is definitely a show that builds around tragedies, but as the video suggests, the ending doesn’t really give us that feeling that the story went “full circle” and we’re left with a catharsis that we don’t usually get when we watch other tragic stories.

Unlike other movies that have a hero dying, Black Mirror actually puts the protagonists in very helpless situations and we as the viewers are left with our own feelings of helplessness and despair. It’s incredibly unique for an anthology series that aims to warn us about the dangers of our ever-evolving technology.

As of now, Black Mirror is gearing up for its fourth season, and you can check out the first three on Netflix.
