Black Mirror Playtest

Election Night 'Isn't a Black Mirror Episode,' Netflix Series Makes Clear

No, the folks at Saito Games didn’t quietly slip a playtest headset on you during dinner.

In response to several Tuesday-night tweets that compared the unfurling of the presidential election results to “the worst episode of Black Mirror,” the Netflix suspense series played along by making clear that Republican candidate Donald Trump’s lead in electoral votes, several hours into the night, was neither part of the series nor an elaborate viral marketing scheme.

Among the many who drew a comparison between Black Mirror (which regularly sets episodes in a haunting near-future) were The Tick‘s Peter Serafinowicz. (Warning: language.)
