Black Mirror TV Series : An Anthology that tells sarcastically about the dark side of technological human mentality

 When everything is modernized and civilized for human's easiness, does everything goes safe is the question in every individual's mind . Recent scams and leaks from our social networking sites and very big corporate database does really consider about our worries and problems. I have been a fan of some good mind bending tv series that i watch during leisure times to think how they visualize with good story. I've recently endorsed some tele series The prisoner , Legion, Mr.Robot in my previous posts.

 Today, i'd like to review about one of my most favorite anthology of modern era which visualizes dark shades of technological implication in human's activities in near future is simply a spectacular rather visually effective with the dreadful paranoia winding up in rather sarcastically nephilism. It is a tv series of Charlie Brooker's that aired in British channel 4 and now the Season 4 is been aired in Netflix with six episodes 

the future is bright with black mirror tv series logo

 Black Mirror is a cult of today's modern men's inhalation and fallacies onto the darker side of technological overdose with the tramples of strong short stories of some group of individuals day-day activity or fictional scientifically portrayal that taps us with lots of provoking questions in our mind. It is very difficult for us to discuss without revealing . In every episodes of every season with the monotonous brilliance of cult mannerism that broadcasts good and bad side of human developments and laziness.

black mirror episodes split


 Black Mirror was originally inspired from the older anthology shows like The Twilight zone that tells about the controversies of censorship but this tele series has lots more of what we live today. In the bounce of tech gadgets and gizmo's most human falls into clumsiness and stories were created to provoke audience into deep thinking.

 Season 1 and 2 was aired in Channel 4 and Season 3 ,4 were aired in Netflix with 6 episodes each . Totally , 19 unique episodes with the love or hate conjures on technological blasphemies with lots of psychological twists in between that inbounds sci-fi elemental so symmetrically into one piece of all together of mixed genres like horror/mystery/suspense / drama / family with sci-fi 

a rip from black mirror episode nose dive

 Some Television series just showcase for entertainment and some makes us to watch with some though provoking whilst some series makes us haste to watch for no reason. Black Mirror is an epitome of master brilliance of the maker who wants us to screenplay visually to the audience with the day-days advances that pressurizes or sedates the man's thinking ability in deep heartened and also mind blowing. Virtual Reality , Augmented Reality , 3D Hologram , Neuron Networks , Digital Realism , Artificial Intelligence concepts are portrayed well in both con and pro side as well.

 When we saw some tv series till 2000 it totally shunned us with some modern approaches , good concepts and some even skeptical. After 2000's many series started to round off the same and shown many sci-fi drama episodes which was no literally unique except few ones which tells us the cult of day-day events and incidents. Black Mirror is a kind of sophomore that has become so popular among audience because of not just delivered in unique conceptual style but also it warns the society that we are slaved by gizmo and pseudo society influence towards apps and tech revolt that completely detaches us from human feelings and make us like a programmed personality that we got mostly attached our personal feelings towards computer and mobile and we estrange our care and love towards our neighbors , friends and our own family is a kind of black mark to out human nature.
Interesting and must watch series mind bending cult and sci-fi epitome drama that interprets the darker aspects of humanity and society and the black mirror is the real time screen that we run our lives sarcastically but true with the unique episodes crafted well and acting is very phenomenal .

Black Mirror is unsettling in best possible ways where it unflinchingly explores the issues of modern society through deeply interactive stories that shows the intoxication with technological era and it disturbs you and provokes you to think deeper while watching. Amazing and Stunningly powerful brilliance from the director who showed some guts to show whats happening around us and what will happen if we go on like this in 80 minute episodes in truly gripped , suspenseful and cult way. Please watch out the trailer and ranking of all 19 episodes from worst to best in descending order 



If you have watched Steven Speilberg's Minority report and Stanley Kubrik's A Clockwork Orange movies then sure you will give a thought to watch this tv series interestingly blendful 

The Prisoner ( 1967 ) Tv series is an unique mystery/thriller metaphor of modern cult that exposes our society with cat and mouse escapism of individual

I've never been used to watch television series earlier days except detective , comedy and some cartoons in the weekend. I love to watch different television series with variety of stories or characters that run in front of us which should make some sense or entertained. We obsessed with modern media and some television series will never be able to forget even when we get aged. I have already mentioned some  series like Legion  & Mr.Robot earlier, but today i'd like to talk about one classic spy cult that tells about escapism which has sense of modern day's civilization.

the prisoner classic tv series

 When the modern television series tells with more technological stuffs , one of the classical cult tells about how modern civilization will be in sarcastic and thriller way in provocative manner.  A British secret agent who just resigns from the service recently gotten abducted from his own place and been shifted to some mystic idyllic village , but is really a weird prison. There he used to meet complete strangers which he is totally unaware of. Not only but also those strangers in the village comes with no names but numbers . He is been warded information to follow up but they provide no information to him which makes us intrigue .

  It is a quite ambiguous and also most unique way of telling the characters which i have never seen in classical nor today's series where characters names are used as numbers. Why this series has a re flexion and controversy in 60's ITV series because they had more critics with the story they showed up in the television. This actually paved my interest to watch this series. 

 When he asks the person is in chair who is like a boss in that village , he says " You are number 6, I'm number 2 "  Our main character lead a.k.a hero says him in return " I'm not a number " starred by Patrick McGoohan who starred as secret agent in this series and also many series has been hit into lot of criticism because of this own production and direction. 

 I don't want to spill more plot in very detail but i'd like to share up what this tv series is all about in few lines. A man been abducted and transferred to the remote village finding a way to escape from the mystic village where every time he fails because of the modern day times implementation of security cam's , authority personnels and guards who keep eavesdropping at his every pin point moves and even the technological pod will be moved according to the boss [ number 2 ] remote moves which makes us tramped and stumped like a human man with his control in other hands concept.

This is a 17 episode series that in each episode the number 6 tries to find a way to escape from the mystic village but he mostly fails . Not only that but also in every episodes [ except few that will not be in arranged order ] number 2 will be  kept changing and instruct others to make the number 6 tired and frustrated of to get only  one information from him Tell me , why did you resign from your service ? and every week he meets new adversary

Why he resigned from the service under whose content of advice or what made him to resign is what the number 2 wants. But our hero here never tells this till the end and also most interesting in between is once he find a way to get out of this island and he finds his way back home , but when he backs to his home , every thing looks unfamiliar and even other colleagues who works with him also be brought of to make him fool in between.

It is believed to be the concept of individualism versus the mass of group of people who follows blindly what they been asked to followed too. We study , work and will look for a family in future to develop ourselves for betterment of civilization to prudent accustomed to society which are like programmed book . Number 6 is like a rebel who fights for his cause , when he tried to find out the unique way , what are the gains and losses of it are explained in occult way is what i could say.

I never felt such an interesting , gripping and also provocative cult way in modern day television series except few ones . In the last two episodes somehow audience could able to get a theme that number 6 needs to prove his authenticity by passing or smarting number 2 out to goto his city back with no future confusions like happened in between episode. Whence once he cleared of number 2 , he been asked to meet number 1 and other group of people who shouts and chants what government says very sarcastically. 

I don't want to spill much except saying the unique piece of art in television drama those days will still make us to think more deeper what we are onto in the hands of finest civilization which shapes us in the terms of society culture against any individual like number 6 who struggles for his individuality through escape and defeats.

The screenplay and dialogue is amazing and makes visually effective with the modern day sets those days and the modern depiction in classical cult have proved its uniqueness in story telling and an amazing thriller to every audience a must watch even in these days and will stand for years. It is more interestingly a feel of psychiatry and a play of our modern day notations like technology, science, government policies towards citizen, freedom , democracy , education and scientific progression and also this concept has made other directors to make movies like Truman Show , Nowhere Man in modern day cinema. The all 17 episodes are really a masterpiece of brilliance from Patrick McGoohan through his visionary cult display permeable with the thread and taunts of liberty and personal identity that has been masked under fake cultural practices to prove us the modern day man's today's fallacy towards cultural blind following up in small screen in interesting and fashionable way a must watch for everyone and also to think deeply a handful applauds with wonderful background music and beautiful location as well 




Legion : A perplexed & also visually stunning metahuman sci-fi tv series from Marvel

    Whenver we talk of tv series , we always find it entertaining or provocative based. Only few tv series deserves to riddle us with their story telling method and make us to watch over and over again to confirm what we seen is true, they do twist us with the plots and confusions and even conjure us with the another parallel way of story telling . Few weeks back , i was talking of  Mr.Robot : complicated twisted tv series of hacker , now i am going to talk of Legion aired by FX channel

      
 As the name suggests , Legion is quiet perplexed to understand for any tv viewers in linear way , if you watch one  episode it may likely to have a different perspective  view in next episode with blended twists . In  the Season 1 ,  main starrer Dan Steven as David Haller is a schizopernic grown up young man who is already admitted in the hospital under treatment for his condition , but he has super human abilities like magneto in x-men and yeah he is a mutant according to the marvel database and he has super human abilities with great agility to bend time , pyrokenesis ,  reality warping , energy projection ,telekinesis and telepathy and also shape shifting which are tremendous




( Original source : FX , Marvel studios )

       If you have watched X-men movies , you might be pretty aware of what mutants are really capable of and likewise , i mentioned the super power ability of this mutant David Haller will riddle you with the tail end chase of every episodes with confusions in your mind sometimes. If you have already watched the first season of this legion , you could able to understand the notation well. In the first season of legion tv series , What you can get is how David Haller gets to the hospital ? how he could able to get such meta human abilities and why some guys are chasing him and who is villain and why there is another team wanted to get these mutants away and who is that girl like that could be able to get to known in very unusual , mind bending in visual stunning way.

       If you're aware of Gabriel Haller and Professor Xavier in X-men comics from Marvel , you could able to catch up what i am saying of. Here David Haller comes as complicated paranoid kid , who has some meta abilities , where he meets some acrolytes of other mutants with special abilities to help him. There is an antagonist team who works against these mutants for government and also an creepy insider personality that conjures us in the form of yellow ugly wide bald faced guy seemingly like an Alien. Who's he ? and why he appears in our hero's dreams or visions sometimes is another tail end that you need to knock of .



     You could see the bulgey faced yellow eyed devil that knocks surprisingly in between . But what is this creature ? why it is appearing in his vision or dreams or illusion sometimes, will be a later show off. If you are pretty interested to watch comic hero based , mutant based or psychological thriller based, then this legion episode could be your main meal. Just Season 1 crossed over with 8 episodes , in each episodes you will find it interestingly spinning like cotton in our brain at the end of every episodes. I would not want to throw the full story of these episodes . But you will find it little confused in between or your mind will be feeling  What moments to understand it properly. They made it visually stunning , psychologically bending with twists like Inception and Insidious mix that owes you to watch it with interest. Please watch out the trailer of first season below











Mr. Robot tv series : tv version of fight club in tech style

 Everyone watches television and mostly many people are interested in tv series , some tv series are more than entertainment whilst some others are just one time watch outs. I used to be comic fan and i was watching tv series like the flash , iron fist , arrow . While i was surfing over , i gotten to know of Mr. Robot tv series is quiet latterly and started to watch with the just to crunch my time , but later on this series got my mind out of it with the problematic democracy by bullied aristocrats in realistic way than being just entertaining. I am not going to review much here , but i'd love to share some opinions about this tv series here . I just  love to watch tv series but also i am a movie buff and couch potato , who loves to watch interesting tv series . This particular tv series tells about how the real time hackers could access information in corporate level and how the corporate shadows us with their penetrative updates. It may sound like quiet anarchy , but if you observe this carefully , this tv series has lots of information apart from entertainment , it doesn't only entertains you and also makes you to think wise. I hope now you literally got some idea of what this tv series is all about ? If you have watched the movie " fight club " then you will find it bit similarly   



   If you want me to talk of entertainment way , The starrer Rami malek has done the great job with Michael Slater in the very prominent role that drives you in one direction , quiet latterly it shows you different path and riddles your mind what exactly happened. Sometimes , you may feel like what i watched now is so far not the same is what you will feel. Why Mr. Robot exists ? Why that Elliot Anderson wants to take on the evil corp and what is the connection between Mr Robot and this Elliot will be revealed in unconventional way . So far, two seasons ran away now the third season is running out with the expected benchmark satisfying audience in Mr Robot's style. In Season 1 , You will get to know who is Mr. Robot ? and in Season 2, dark side of corporate fantasies will be shown and in Season 3, It's about plan of Mr. Robot is running on . I don't want to spoil the audience cache by spilling of the stories , that's why i was just giving an overview of it. 



I don't want to spill the beans of this tv series much without spoiling , i want you guys to watch it. Overall, my opinion about this tv series is " really great with their original soundtracks and also the screenplay that never let you out to dire . Not only a good entertainer , but also provocative with today's modern media and darker side of it . Apart from all the above , it is a techno psychological thriller tv series that twists your mind to sugar up your interest ".  You can watch it in USA tv channel for USA citizens , for others and for netizens abroad USA , i'd like to send you the direct download links in this indexure , so you can download at anytime and also the links will be updated after every episodes are aired ..

Are you a fan of tv series ? you happened to watch tv series in netflix or any tv channels ? then you might be noticing about Netflix and there are some apps , which can allow us to download tv series which are already aired in the network. In the technological era today., we happen to live in tech wonders , where anything could be possible these days. Okay , What i am talking of here? , what i am going to indicate here is all about an app that is going to be launched this November by the Ocean's director Steven Soderbergh. What he is going to do with this app stuff , getting amused?. We all know that he came back into his film direction by directing Logan Lucky recently and now he is in the verge to take mini series in HBO and its called " Mosaic ".  This is the tv series he is gonna direct, nothing new, so what?. If you think like that , you will be pretty amazed to see what this has to do ? and why i am talking of. I don't want to stretch too long riddling of. This reputed director has just made an innovative and a creative approach to reach audience in digital way. What i am saying is this director has  recently released this trailer and stirred a surprise storm amongst audience by announcing that it will be aired in character selection mode as we play in games. Are you getting what i am saying?. Yeah, the director said in one of the interview that he wants to show of a digital way to the public, as many people uses net and app to watch tv shows and movies these days. 

No automatic alt text available.

Soderbergh is a well talented director who has remarkable experience in interactive story telling way and he made this innovative approach with the HBO tv channel to support this digital experience. If you have watched the trailer recently launched , you might have got an hinch of glimpse that this tv series is all about choose your character style app based experience . whence you install , you are free to choose any character and that character based story will be played via just tapping it. Which means, character will be shown in different perspectives. This is interesting and fresh to audience but Netflix had this similar approach like choosing role type recently. Viewers are the judges here to perspect the character and story telling will be based on what you have chosen and every view will be different . Multiple stories will be correlated and this is a fresh approach to tv series , as these kind of choose your own adventure type games are already launched and the consequences will be based on the decisions made earlier is like a real time effect. Here audience are left with choices that makes building upon one another enabling multiple stories tangling to one another in different perspectives with the different conclusions like newtons third law effect type. Viewers will notice the difference in stories with the original one . This app is really flexible and it seems to be aired on January 2018 but this app will be launched in November and it seems to be having Six part linear narration . I watched out the trailer myself and it seems pretty good and important casts include Sharon Stone, Garet Hudland, Beau Bridges , Paul Reubens and et al., Trailer is remarkably brilliant by not spilling much but you could get an idea of web of strings connected altogether like neurons and nodes . To know more of this , please visit watchmosaic.com and to download the app from IOS , you need to wait till November to get launched and installed. My verdict is overall a good approach like we already have in games and in Netflix , but for an app to run a live tv series , this must be a first time and it seems that the director and his team worked out pretty hard . Please watch out the trailer from the official link , Just in case , if you missed , Please watch the video below









WoW ! Flash yo've traits a lot :)




Image result for flash abilities
Who doesn't love comics ? . When i was a 8 year old kid , i used to watch Superman running in Doordarshan tv channel every sunday in the evening . Later on, i started watching Batman , Spiderman , Captain America and Ironman . This developed my studious interest amongst the comic characters and their abilities. When i was watching The Flash tv series , i felt its a good character to know of . His emotional intelligence , his powerful abilities and his enemity with reverse flash and then later on with Black Flash and Savitar in past three seasons made remarkable except last season seems to be quiet disappointing but apart from that whole series gives you an interest to watch super hero episodes from DC comics.


Flash is an important member in Justice League and he has tremendous amount of skillful abilities which you need to know of :

  • Speed-Force generation : from many sources and from tv series , i am convinced  that Flash is the creator of speed-force and he cannot be destroyed by anyone in this neither any speedster does .
  • Super Human speed : as Flash is more powerful superhero in DC comics , he can not only run fast of all flashes, but also he can break dimensions 
  • Super Human reflexes & stamina : He has great reflexes than any human being , that makes him easily react to any kind of veilness and act upon and also he can able to handle super human speeds upto certain amount of time without gettting tired.
  • Super Human Agility : He has the super ability to leap forward in far distances at good speed
  • Speed Force Aura & Durability :  The distinctive character around him makes to manifests with the speed and friction and pass out the kinetic effects , G-force and other abilities and he has good resisting capacity and even he could able to kill anyone and his muscles are able to generate cells easily and makes him more durable than any ordinary human
  • Dimensional Traveling ability : Flash could able to travel and cross dimensional barriers 
  • Electrokinesis & Negate Anti Life Equation : Flash has source of electrical speed force energy generates more power , when he moves with speed and he can matches with speed force energy
  • Enhanced Mental process & Senses : Flash has enormous amount of  ability to read super human range in seconds and also he has ability to learn to equip his knowledge in few seconds time and also allows him to sense the world in few seconds time
  • Flight , Interstellar , Time travel and molecular reaction : Flash has the ability to create cyclone making his hands like propeller fan and also he is capable to travel time and also interstellar by synchronizing his frequency to ultra light waves to travel and also he is capable enough to travel time [ back and also to future ] and also he can vibrate molecular attraction through phasing by showing momentarily and also he can vibrate his own molecular structure
  • Reality Alteration & Vortex Creation : As he is capable enough to travel time [ back and future ] , he is able to alter the reality and make changes , from Season 2 end and Season 3 first episode , you could get it clearly and vortex creation is nothing but he can create a strong wind by running himself in circular motion and he is capable enough to create a huge air flow .
  • Time- Reminance : Though Flash copied this concept  from Zoom  by making  a copy of himself by pausing , when running at high speed .

  From all the above facts , it seems that Flash is not just another ordinary day saving hero , he is also capable enough to do many stuffs , which are extra-ordinary and no doubt, he is one of the most formidable member in Justice League team as well. Watch out the trailer of The Flash season 4 below
