* AssholeVictim: Occasionaly played straight, but [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed more often than not,]] particularly in White Bear, Shut Up and Dance, and Hated by the Nation. The assholes often do things that make them seem unsympathetic such as being rude overall to [[spoiler: engaging in child murder or pornography,]] but the events they go through are so utterly horrific that any sense of schadenfruede is drained right out. Meanwhile, their tormentors, those that have designated them assholes, are very clearly little better than those they attack and humiliate, [[KnightTemplar often using pretensions of vigilante justice]] [[YouAreWhatYouHate to engage in being assholes themselves.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RousseauWasRight: The series overall shows this quite often, though rendered through a heavily cynical lens; Charlie Brooker once described this in an interview:
-->''"I think most people are inherently good. When they throw themselves behind some ugly cause, it's usually out of fear or because they're not availed of all the facts. The show generally reflects that. [[HumansAreFlawed It's usually just people with a weakness who end up fucking up]]. We don't have many mustache-twirling villains. But I am a worrier and I do think things are going to go horribly wrong by accident."''

''Black Mirror'' is a UK television drama [[GenreAnthology anthology]] series produced (and mostly written) by ''Series/DeadSet'' creator Creator/CharlieBrooker. [[ThematicSeries The episodes follow different characters and settings yet retain similar]] BlackComedy themes of techno-paranoia and general unease with the world. The series is heavily inspired by ''Series/TheTwilightZone''. [[MeaningfulName The series' name stems]] from the reflection visible in a blackened digital screen. Since each ''episode'' is set in its own universe, specific examples can be found in the appropriate series page (linked below), whilst recurring tropes can be found on this page.

* CreativeClosingCredits: Combined with TheStinger, the credits often show the aftermath of the each story.

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Most episodes. "The National Anthem" and "The Waldo Moment" are exceptions as, due to no visible tech advancement, they are presumably set around present day. Indeed, a FreezeFrameBonus shows they take place at about the same time- Carlton Bloom's "agitation exhibit" is mentioned during a broadcast during the Waldo Moment.

* BreatherEpisode: A few of the episodes have the endings be more bittersweet so that the viewer can't constantly assume the worst possible thing will happen every time.

"San Junipero" [[spoiler:straight up ends on an unambiguously happy note, and also features an incredibly optimistic and sweet romance with virtually no hints of malice or cynicism]].
