There are a dozen or so choices like these throughout the special, perhaps offering a hint at how the streaming service will handle the feature in future interactive content not geared toward children. Just think of your favourite episode of "Black Mirror" and how big of a difference in the ending there could have been had you been in control! Essentially, users will be able to choose what happens to their characters before they inescapably get trapped in some sort of dystopian world. Video games have used this same method to open up sprawling stories that last for endless hours.
Given its sci-fi and anthological nature, Black Mirror pretty much the flawless test dummy, as each episode stands alone, with each utilizing a completely different setting, cast of characters, and overall style and structure. At the very least, it's not like Black Mirror needs a gimmick to stay popular, so I'm curious to see what the show does with it. After watching one version, kids can go back and watch the other.
Netflix has been developing interactive programming for a while now.
Airline now says one man missing after plane crash lands in ocean
The airline did not immediately offer any other details about the passenger, such as his age or nationality. It said it was in touch with embassies, passenger representatives, stakeholders and families of the crew.
No details on the cast, directors, or episodes for Season 5 have been released yet, but fingers crossed we hear something soon. It will reportedly be released later this year.
Black Mirror isn't the only Netflix entity where viewers will be allowed to have a say in what comes next. At this point we don't really know how exactly the interactivity will work, but both publications reported that it will be a sort of choose-your-own-adventure thing.
Black Mirror is one of the most experimental and interesting shows on TV and it could be about to blow our minds in a whole new way.
