The episode beat Robert De Niro’s “The Wizard of Lies” and Dolly Parton’s “Sherlock.” Let that sink in.
Thanks to season 3’s “San Junipero,” Black Mirror is officially a two-time Emmy-award winner.
Show creator Charlie Brooker proudly accepted the awards for Outstanding TV Movie and Outstanding Writing for a TV Movie from the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards last Sunday.
With the series’ satirical light, San Junipero is a widely acclaimed palate cleanser.
Starring Mackenzie Davis (Yorkie) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Kelly), the episode follows the romance of two women in a fun-loving beach town of San Junipero — a ‘place’ that only exists within a hard-drive of a tech-company called TCKR Systems.
Its neon-lit portrayal of time’s historical periods was sensually rolled out. It was a breath of fresh air in comparison to other Black Mirror episodes… right?
At the end of the episode, Yorkie and Kelly have both died. However, some fans believe that Kelly didn’t choose the alternative afterlife, which might mean that she only left a piece of memory for Yorkie who chose to live forever in TCKR’s man-made ‘heaven.’
Some stans of the sci-fi anthology do not necessarily agree with the sad theory and continues to believe the ‘positive’ ending. The show is known to founded on a very dystopian reality, so who knows, really?
Unfortunately, the series’ 4th season doesn’t have a fixed release date yet.
When asked about the upcoming season, however, Brooker stated , “I’ve heard 2017 described as like being trapped in one long ending Black Mirror episode, but if I’d written it, it wouldn’t be quite so on the nose.”
Ain’t that right on the money? We’re living it, but Black Mirror’s 4th season is making us hungry for more.
