Are one of those people who doesn’t know what “Black Mirror” means even though the Netflix show of the same name is now in its fourth season? If so, brace yourself, because based on the reactions of the thousands of people who just figured it out, your mind is about to get blown to smithereens.
Back in 2014, the creator of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker explained to Britain’s Channel 4 what the title of the show means, but since most of us don’t read watch that channel I guess it never really registered.
“What I took it to mean was, when a screen is off. When a screen is off it looks like a black mirror,” Brooker explained. “Because any TV, any LCD, any iPhone, and iPad, something like that, if you just stare at it it looks like a black mirror and there’s something cold and horrifying about that and it was such a fitting title for the show.”
And yet, here we are in 2018, four seasons in, as I mentioned, and people who watch the show, LOTS of people, are still just now figuring this out.
Over 35,000 retweets and over 112,000 likes. Wow. Thank goodness we have the internet these days, huh? So many people would be completely lost without it.
He may actually be on to something.
