Season four's most successful episodes work because they explore the ways in which technology can amplify, rather than change, our basic human impulses and instincts. It's within such stories that Black Mirror finds its strongest emotions.
Mr. Brooker, whose background is in comedy writing, knows how to create realistic human interaction, and of course, human/tech interaction. The latter is what Black Mirror is all about: at its chilling best when the terrors run small, and deep.
Episode idea: We display unity unlike the world has ever seen before and kidnap Charlie Brooker. We lock him up in an underground bunker, safe from Donald Trump and Twitter. His only purpose will be to write new episodes of Black Mirror until he dies.
As a body of work it's more interesting than satisfying, although "USS Callister," the standout episode, is spectacular, while "Hang the DJ" has the kind of winning optimism that made Season 3's Emmy-winning "San Junipero" such a hit.
