    TV - Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror - Social Media, Moral Monsters & The Matrix (Pt.2)

    This episode of Pic.Think: TV (w/ Sy, Martin, Gladys & Raveen) explores the themes of social media, moral monsters and the Matrix found within seasons 3 & 4 of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror.

    The first section (Heaven & Hell) of our discussion centres around Robert Nozick's "Experience Machine" thought experiment and both the "San junipero" & "Playtest" episodes to explore the possibility of heaven and hell on earth.

    The second section (Moral Monsters) we sift through the episodes of seasons 3 & 4 to explore the dangers of virtual reality and social media in creating moral monsters.

    The third section (The Matrix) we conclude the review by discussing whether the Americanisation of these seasons of Black Mirror help or hinder the show. Also, the episode "Hang the DJ" inspires a discussion as to whether the Matrix is possible or a figment of our imagination.

    In the first part (Childhood movies & literature), we start off the conversation taking a stroll down memory lane by first considering which 1990s movies defined our children. We also reminisce on what childhood books we read or wished we had.

    Throughout both the second and third part (Childhood vs. Adulthood), we review Matilda by comparing how we felt watching as a youth versus how we feel watching as adults. We discuss the memorable scenes, characters, messages taken from the film etc.
