Black Mirror - Fifteen Million Merits/White Bear

July 12, 2017

This time Kevin and Paul take a detour and talk about two episodes from the BBC tech-horror series, Black Mirror.

Fifteen Million Merits: In the not too distant future we meet Bing, a man stuck on a stationary bike in a world of endless advertisements and worthless purchases. He just wants one true authentic moment. Is he willing to pay the price? 

White Bear: Victoria wakes up to a headache and not knowing who she is. As she searches for answers, she is being chased by mute hunters and being recorded by passive onlookers with their cell phones, unwilling to help her. Will finding out the truth about White Bear set her free?
