Black Mirror - Netflix

Everyone's favourite freaky futuristic mindbender returned yesterday with what Netflix is optimistically calling Season 5. Consisting of a mere three episodes this "season" won't take you too long to binge through. Still, it's quality not quantity and nobody's currently doing creepy tech-thrills as well as Black Mirror. So, what's in store? The first ep is called Smithereens and follows a cabbie (wait, not a driverless Uber?) who has a very bad day. The second is titled Rachel, Jack and Ashley, Too, stars Miley Cyrus and is about a teen who stans her fave pop idol. And the final episode of the "season" - lol - has the amazing title, Striking Vipers, explores what happens when you have the very good and not-at-all-terrible idea to reunite with a high-school sweetheart.

And that's your lot for Season 5. Roll on season six, eh?

Streaming now.

There was only one big problem: it was all a sham. Fraud, deception and buckets of blood. What more do you want? Streaming now.
