"Black Mirror" is quite possibly the best show you're not watching. It's a sort of "Twilight Zone" for the smartphone age that artfully imagines just how terrifying technological progress could become.
The U.K. series' six episodes are currently available to stream on Netflix, and last night DirecTV viewers in the U.S. were treated to the "White Christmas" episode starring Jon Hamm.
Without spoiling anything about the episode, we can say it hits on some very timely issues, and it won't leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling like most Christmas specials do.
Here's what Twitter had to say:
Holy shit. Just watched Black Mirror's White Christmas. Audibly said "oh fuck" several times. Maybe home alone at 10pm wasn't the best time.

Black Mirror White Christmas is putting an enjoyably bleak cap on this festive day.
