All Critics (95) | Top Critics (31)

Season four's batch of six episodes stand out because few fans can agree on which episodes are best.

...another solid outing, and while nothing quite hits the giddy highs of last season...

Dec 11, 2017 | Full Review…

The result is a show that encompasses so much emotion, so much fear and hate and sadness and joy.

Black Mirror's themes and delivery methods are still as poignant...

While "USS Callister" is the most timely and vital of the new episodes, "Hang The DJ" (named after a line in a song by The Smiths) is the freshest and the most humane.

An astonishing, superlative piece of work in every respect.

It didn't push the creep button quite the same as previous anthologies. But on the second run-through I realized it didn't stop there. Underneath the usual was another word, a new line of quiet code: RESIST.

Black Mirror always makes me think. Another great season, can't wait for the next.

May 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Depending on the story a particular episode may be romantic, action-packed, or creepy, but one thing they all have in common is that they're all downright terrifying.

Nov 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Black Mirror is still one of the smartest shows around, giving us a prescient look at our inevitable future if we act before we think.

Aug 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The fourth season of Black Mirror brings shock and fear to the table. It might even have you asking yourself if you're in a simulation.

Aug 26, 2018 | Full Review…

It's still good, and all marvellously constructed, but it's not like the first two seasons where every episode was must-see and profoundly disquieting.

Audience Reviews for Black Mirror: Season 4

  • Jul 13, 2019
    My Rating 10/10 !!!NO SPOILERS!!! *Its a masterpiece to get comprehensive info or ideas that how future tech will look alike e.g. VR, AR, AI etc developing and what will be the possible situations after 10-50 Years. *Basically its biased on that future technologies that how they can be use as super evil for humanity and kindly note that its not anti-tech Series so as a tech guy i didn't got offended. for example:its like telling people that Guns are good for safety but how are the possible methods or can be used for super evil purposes. *Its an science fiction anthology means each episode have different story but based on main idea Future Technologies. *It not like f**king boring story telling or sad f**king bullsh*t its Action, Drama, Sci-fi, trust me each episode have beautiful story and can be converted to f**king beautiufl 3 hours movie. I was confused that should I watch that i means spend time on that but after Watching first episode It made me watch all the seasons and I have watched all 5 seasons (10:00 PM 13 July 2019) *I loved the film and Its a Must Watch for Sci-fi Lovers

    I didn't think that they could get more idiotic than White Bear in season 2, yet arkangel manages to do just that, with Crocodile somehow being even worse. It feels at this point that the writers put all of their effort into establishing an interesting premise, but are utterly incapable on doing anything with it. Hang the DJ is the only one that truly stands out, and tells an entirely unique story with amazing performances. It's a fantastic episode, but doesn't save the idiocy the rest of the season was.

    Still can be interesting but not as strong as original. Getting to soft.

    Monkey loves you and needs a hug. This season closes with its horror, unsettling stories, and a remarkable reflection of our future and today's world. Some episodes are very predictable, especially for "Crocodile" and "Metalhead" which are the most widely criticized by audiences and critics. Although not many have aesthetic expectations and criticisms, this fourth season is an interesting spectacle. It still gives you the satirical criticism about the dark side of technology and one's humanity when combined into one. Do they exist? Can they change the future? How can they be used wisely? What are the consequences?

    Black Mirror gets more and more intriguing as each season goes by. Betwixt all episodes of this fourth season, Ep. 6- Black Museum sure deserves special attention, as one of the most memorable, philosophical and well-produced episodes of the whole series, and also as one of the most special productions of the series industry of this decade. With an impeccable soundtrack and a gloomy tone that leads to an astonishing ending, Black Museum sure wraps up - in the best possible way - the Fourth Season of Black Mirror, and is absolutely unskippable.

    an excellent dark vision of science fiction
  • Feb 22, 2019
    Season 4 Episode 3 is a dark race to the bottom episode.
  • Feb 03, 2019
    Almost every episode this season is a powerful one, often ending on (what could be considered an unusual) high note. Many types of technology that we've seen in previous seasons make some sort of return in each of the episodes, culminating in Black Museum where pretty much every previous episode gets a reference in some form. Personally I loved "USS Callister" most, as in the end the copied people get to roam a digital universe for eternity (or as long as the online platform is kept active at least), which sounds awesome (considering the now free crew of the space ship won't age and can't die, as they are code instead of actual RL players).

    Hang the DJ > Crocodile > Metalhead > Black Museum > USS Callister > Arkangel
  • Dec 29, 2018
    S4 doesn't hit the high point of the previous season, but BLACK MIRROR still remains the smartest, chilling television show with many suspenseful episodes that will leave audiences feeling a terrifying sense of unease about a technology-driven future.
