WARNING: DISCUSSION OF PLOT POINTS! SPOILERS!
Modern Television has been dominated by countless “quality” TV shows, with ongoing stories spanning multiple seasons, with plenty of inter-season cliffhangers, and numbers of characters names to memorise to keep up with continuity. With these epic tales like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad being centre stage on our televisions, dramatic anthology shows are dearly missed. Anthology shows (anthology meaning a different plot and cast of characters between episodes and seasons), need no memorisations of which character is which and why that character is out for revenge and so forth. Shows like The Twilight Zone and Goosebumps scared us to death, and the more revolutionary and recent entry into this genre American Horror Story, spooked us and entertained us. But a new anthology series has arrived, albeit 5 years ago but its 3rd season has just premiered on Netflix, to change the way we view horror / sci-fi anthology series, and TV stories for that matter. This show doesn’t contain haunted houses, parallel universes or cursed masks fusing to someone’s face, nor are there supernatural beings, ghouls nor spirits, Black Mirror nosedives headfirst into the most terrifying thing in human existence: inevitability, and the future.
