Black Mirror's season four release at the end of December didn't go unnoticed by the Twitter community with fans everywhere taking to the social network to deconstruct Charlie Brooker's dystopian universe.
But some creative types have gone one step further, dishing up their own pitches for the next season of the anthology show. And, we have to admit, some of these ideas aren't bad at all (even if a few are just rip-offs of films like Her, Gattaca and...um... real life). Check out some of the best storylines below.
Black mirror episode pitch #2: a man spends all day at a sad and boring office job. his only consolation is his wife who he talks to on the phone all the time but you never see her. and at the end of the episode he gets home and you realize his wife WAS THE PHONE ITSELF— caleb (@calmad9) 7 décembre 2017
Black Mirror idea: Future of Tinder for people who want kids. You give the app your DNA, then swipe left or right on realistic generated photos of the kids it knows you would make with the other users. Freaky!— wyatt tall (@comfortfood) 30 décembre 2017
