    Anyone here seen this? Batshit crazy.

    Just watched the first episode on Netflix. Here's the synopsis, it's not a comedy, by the way:

    Someone kidnaps a British princess and uploads a video of her reading their ransom demand. By 4pm that afternoon, the Prime Minister must go on all British TV channels and have unsimulated sex with a pig or she'll be executed.

    Here's Wikipedia's description of the series:

    Black Mirror is a British television anthology series created by Charlie Brooker that features speculative fiction with dark and sometimes satirical themes that examine modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies. The series is produced by Zeppotron for Endemol.

    Regarding the programme's content and structure, Brooker noted, "each episode has a different cast, a different setting, even a different reality. But they're all about the way we live now – and the way we might be living in 10 minutes' time if we're clumsy." The series has received critical acclaim, and has seen an increase in interest internationally (particularly in the United States) after being added to Netflix. Stephen King, in particular, has noted his interest in the series.

    I'm sorry if Mlaw has already seen this.

    I've seen them all and they're badass. My favorite is the couple with vid cameras in their eyes and the woman whose husband dies and she orders a copy of him.

    Netflix is bankrolling a new season. Amazing how quickly they went from showing a bunch of shit movies, and great TV shows from other networks, to a premier content producer.
