Best Black Mirror Episodes


The Top Ten

1 White Christmas (Special) White Christmas (Special)

Certainly one of the most engaging Black Mirror episodes. All of the stories are captivating, yet they leave the viewer confused as to how they are connected. The end perfectly ties the stories together, and the main characters punishments prove to be so brutal that it causes you to truly feel for them on a human level.

In a mysterious and remote snowy outpost, Matt and Potter share an interesting Christmas meal together, swapping creepy tales of their earlier lives in the outside world. - AlexDiniz
