Behind Black Mirror Season 5: Smithereens | Netflix


(high intensity music) – [Charlie] In Smithereens, we follow a guy called Chris. He’s a fairly disturbed
individual when we first meet him. The starting point was this
desire to do an episode that had no sci-fi element whatsoever and was set very much in the present day. – [Andrew] I think this Black Mirror is particularly humane, human, I think Charlie and Annabel have created something genuinely unique. This character is totally extraordinary. (high-pitched noise) – [Annabel] I think what we tried to do with Smithereens was, rather
than invent technology, just to embrace and address the technology that we have today. That everyone is dependent upon. – [James] This being a Black Mirror that is reflecting the
world back at you right now, I think makes it even more terrifying. – [Damson] This episode
really taps into our fears in a way which lets us know that wow, is this the direction
we’re moving into? I mean, we all know when it is. It’s now. – [Chris] People don’t
even look up anymore. The sky could turn purple and yous wouldn’t notice for a month. – [Charlie] And I liked the
idea that there was this little, sort of, rural corner of Britain somewhere that suddenly gets thrust
onto the world stage. – [Police Woman 1] It’s the FBI. – [Police Woman 2] What? – [Charlie] It’s a thriller but it’s also got
elements of comedy in it. – [Voice On Megaphone] Hello, Christopher! – [Chris] Can you shut up, please? – [Charlie] It’s also quite gripping. (gunshot)

    I enjoyed this season and understood why it was shorter, but I do think they made a mistake ‘backing away’ from harder hitting episodes. They mentioned in interviews that with the world already in a mess, they didn’t want Black Mirror to be adding to it all, but I think that’s exactly what they needed to do. We don’t watch Black Mirror for happy endings. Regardless, I did enjoy this episode!

    I love that Charlie is trying different stuff within the Black Mirror universe. An episode with no sci-fi element has been long coming, it reminds me of the pig episode. I hope he experiments even more in future seasons. The show has to evolve people. Charlie knows what’s he’s doing and he doesn’t wanna get bored that’s why we’re getting new stuff like Bandersnatch and the last 2 seasons.

    This is hands down the best episode of season 5. It's like proper black mirror the others were quite tame. I miss the days where black mirror would be shocking

    Does anyone else think that at the end the kid got shot?!

    I feel like it’s created a vicious cycle that the main guy created, since he killed his partner and I think in story telling terms it would be more interesting if that was the twist in the end. Especially Black Mirror it’s self, always surprises you with crazy things ahaha. But I do love the abrupt ending as it can lead to many endings depending on the viewer!

    As always loved this episode and i think it’s the best one out of the season! ❤️

    Best episode of the season by far, still massively angry at the end cliffhanger, knowing that there won't be any followup to know who got shot.

    I want to say thank you to the director, editors and all of the person that work on this episode.
    The usage of "can't take my eyes off you" and the editing of the ending will be etched on my mind forever. Thank you.

    This and Bandersnatch were the only ones worth the watch this season. The rest were just vacuous nonsense.

    I would prefer if the seasons continue to contain 3 episodes each, it doesn't make the whole series feel so oversaturated with similarly told stories
