The Office - TV serie (2001) - #S03E02
The Office is a British sitcom television series that was first broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC Two on 9 July 2001. Created, written, and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the programme is about the day-to-day lives of office employees in the Slough branch of the fictitious Wernham Hogg Paper Company. Gervais also stars in the series, playing the central character, David Brent. Although fictional and scripted, the programme takes the form of a documentary, with the presence of the camera often acknowledged.
Two six-episode series were made, along with a pair of 45-minute Christmas specials. When it was first shown on BBC Two, it was nearly cancelled due to low ratings, but has since become one of the most successful of all British comedy exports. As well as being shown internationally on BBC Worldwide, channels such as BBC Prime, BBC America and BBC Canada, the series has been sold to broadcasters in over 80 countries, including ABC1 in Australia, The Comedy Network in Canada, TVNZ in New Zealand and the pan-Asian satellite channel STAR World, based in Hong Kong. The show began airing in The United States on Cartoon Network's late night programing block, Adult Swim on 18 September 2009 until 2012.

Black Mirror - TV serie (2011) - #S04E06
Black Mirror is een anthologie, vergelijkbaar met series als The Twilight Zone en Welcome to Paradox. Dit betekent dat de reeks bestaat uit een aaneenschakeling van uiteenlopende losse verhalen. Iedere aflevering speelt zich af op een andere locatie (of zelfs in een andere realiteit), met steeds weer nieuwe personages in de hoofdrol. De serie kent daarom ook geen vaste cast.
Een terugkerend thema in alle afleveringen is de schaduwkant van de moderne technologie en sociale media. Aan iedere muur, op iedere tafel en in iedere broekzak vindt je tegenwoordig een 'zwarte spiegel': een smartphone, tablet of computer scherm. Technologieën die de afgelopen 10 jaar op alle fronten onze samenleving zijn gaan beheersen.
Zoals Charlie Brooker het zelf omschrijft: "Waar gaat het allemaal naartoe? Als technologie drugs is - en zo voelt het - wat zijn dan de bijwerkingen?"
