Once upon a time, a madman (actor) called Jon Hamm watched Charlie Booker’s very, very dark and twisted show about a man who (SPOILER) did a very, very bad thing to a pig. After much horfing, Jon thought to himself, “I have a strange predilection for offbeat British things; I should ask my fairy godagent to get me a meeting.” Having a magical and good fairy godagent means the madman’s dream really did come true. Here’s a preview of Jon’s Christmas Special techno-terror tales:
And the Hamm mugged happily ever after…
The Black Mirror three-story Chrismas Special airs December 19th (UK)/December 25 (US, Direct TV), and co-stars Oona Chaplin and Rafe Spall. The tales dig into “nightmarish” technology, including one that takes a look at what would happen if you could block real people like you do on Facebook. Hmm…how bad could it be? (Never mind. Still traumatized by that other ham thing.)
You can now watch Series 1 and 2 on Netflix, and you should — just keep a bucket nearby.
