Charlie Brooker’s British cult classic show Black Mirror returns for its fourth season on Netflix in a few hours. Originally making its debut on Channel 4 back in late 2011, the show about the terrifying future of technology has garnered quite the following after streaming giant Netflix picked it up last year.

What makes Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror so great is the show’s ability to present something that seems completely ridiculous, but at the same time, something wholly familiar. The dystopian alternative realities — or simply extreme social scenarios — don’t feel that far off from the current state of our tech-dependent world, which only makes each episode that much more unsettling. As we continue to let technology take over our social, domestic and working lives, we are advancing to the point where we give it too much control and start to lose control of it altogether.

Another reason why so many people have tuned into the show is Black Mirror‘s use of plot twists and how the show has managed to set them up, leaving many to be stunned by the episode’s end.
