* {{Anvilicious}}: Charlie Brooker's never been one for subtlety, but this is extreme even by his standards.
* AscendedFridgeHorror: The whole point of the series.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: Technology- specifically, the internet- if used improperly, will be humanity's downfall. That being said, the reason most people in the USA heard of Black Mirror was through social media after its release on Netflix, which is the only reason the show is getting a third season.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: Once you get past the initial shock of most of the plots, almost all of them are ridiculous and illogical, but hide this behind the claim of satire.

* BaseBreaker: There are lots of online debates as to whether the heroine really deserved her fate. On one hand [[spoiler: it's giving her the chance to feel the pain she inflicted on Jemima and her poor family. On the other hand, it's still brutal torture and makes the viewer just as bad as her for taking amusement out of her pain. You could also argue that the park is exploiting the death of a six year old for money - or you could say that the money might go to good causes preventing murders like that happening again. However, punishing someone for a crime that they can't remember seems... a little merciless, regardless of your opinion of Victoria. Whatever side you come down on, expect to have your perceptions of revenge and punishment changed forever. ]]

* HilariousInHindsight: In the first episode, the Prime Minister is forced to have sex with a pig. A few years later, a biography of David Cameron alleged that in college he participated in a sex act with a dead pig as part of an initiation ceremony.



* HilariousInHindsight: Hilarity ensued when, in 2015, a book claimed that David Cameron had "put his private parts in a dead pig's mouth" as part of his initiation into a drinking society at Oxford University. Charlie Brooker took to Twitter to comment:

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Monroe, full stop. We're supposed to hate him for being conservative and [[BritishStuffiness an extremely British kill-joy]]. But it's hard to ''not'' feel sorry for him when he's harassed and bullied throughout his campaign, and still [[NobleDemon refusing to fall to cat-calling and slander]], up until he's provoked into a surprisingly believable TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. Especially compared to our protagonist, whose a bitter, {{Jerkass}} alcoholic who, often out of spite, does little more than harass people who are trying to make a difference, [[spoiler: including his not-girlfriend, who was too busy with her campaign to date him]].
