o-thumbs-up Black Mirror (Netflix Original) – Black Mirror can be a difficult show to describe, since it’s an anthology series that deals with “the unanticipated consequences of new technologies.” That it does so with some of the darkest humor and twists means that Black Mirror isn’t for everyone.

down-o-thumbsdown-o-thumbs Glitch – Interesting story line about people coming back to life in a small Australian town.  Liked the series except for the ending which I hated — super wonky even for an Australian show.
