Still, the small episode order undoubtedly worked in the show’s favor. The “original six” of Black Mirror (The National Anthem. „15 Million Merits,” „The Entire History of You,” „Be Right Back,” „White Bear,” „The Waldo Moment”) amount to what is essentially a successful early 2010s film festival. Fans of the pre-Netflix Black Mirror could easily argue about the episodes amongst themselves, picking and choosing favorites as one would any of the (then) six Star Wars films.
Then, as tends to be the case on television: Netflix happened. Black Mirror set the streamers’ servers ablaze and led to Reed Hastings’ boyz picking up the show for two new seasons. Each one would be double the size of the original seasons at six episodes a pop. Netflix and Charlie Brooker have now nearly doubled the original output of Black Mirror in under two years.
