The Waldo Moment

Made my way through Black Mirror on Netflix again. If you haven’t watched it, you’re missing out. It’s intense, smart, and imaginative satire. I really cannot think of a better description than “The Twilight Zone for the digital age.”

The entire thing is great but I think first season is better overall—though second season opens strong with Hayley Atwell in the gut-wrenching “Be Right Back.” Unfortunately, the second episode is more successful at producing arresting visuals than sustaining a really satisfying narrative with biting social commentary.

However, "The Waldo Moment" deserves much more love. A strong critique of media politics becomes a sharp jab at our relentless apathy and our online herd mentality.
