Black Mirror : Series three is importand social comment and should be shown in schools

Series three is importand social comment and should be shown in schools

Series three perfectly exemplifies pretty much all the concerns I personally have regarding the use (and abuse) and dangers of modern technology, such as social media. I almost feel like I could have written some of it myself. It is so intelligently and insightfully written, which is one of the things I love about the whole show and cannot really fault any of it.

Although slightly exaggerated, it is no less believable and convincing because of it.

I felt the same way after watching the movies Disconnect, and "Men, Women & Children", but Black Mirror is more subtle and recognises further-reaching implications than they do.

It should be shown to kids who are maybe too young to fully realise the effects of cyber bullying, for instance. I think it would work great as they would also find it very entertaining, more so than any of the informational programmes I saw as a kid.
