Bird Box is a phenomenon. You can't deny it. The buzz is real. Over the Christmas holiday, it was the single most demanding social media "next big thing" (sorry Aquaman, Bumble Bee, et al). Countless memes, theories, questions and so on.

So while you're still digesting that and figuring out who and what the creatures were (and more importantly, how Tom kept that dope haircut and looked like he was fresh out of a Planet Fitness everyday), here's what you should definitely be looking at for you next Netflix must see event.

Enter Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. For the uninitiated, Black Mirror is a series on Netflix that can best be described as a new age Twilight Zone for the tech set. And it can get scary and twisted real quick. It's pretty awesome. Some episodes are hit and miss, but most of them are pretty dope.
Now the summary of the Black Mirror event that is Bandersnatch is the following:
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. In 1984, a young programmer begins to question reality as he adapts a sprawling fantasy novel into a video game and soon faces a mind-mangling challenge. Welcome back.
However that's not why this thing is amazing. Remember back in the day, when you had those choose your own adventure stories. You'd get to a point in the story, and have to make a decision and turn to page ??? to see what happened? That's what you do when watching this. Keep your remote in hand and be prepared to make choices that will affect the outcome of the movie.
Now, I'm not going to go any further than that. You may head on over to YouTube and search Black Mirror: Bandersnatch if you like and go down that rabbit hole. And research the multiple endings. And good and bad endings. And the mystery of the "game within a game" if you like. I'm not giving away any spoilers. But, for the Black Mirror set, this one is pretty cool. And if you've never seen and of the episodes for this series, it's a pretty cool one to get started with. And if you'd like know more about which episodes to watch, peep this.
