STDP016: Black Mirror’s “USS Callister” On Netflix

In our first episode of 2018, we take a detour off the beaten path to talk about the Netflix Black Mirror episode, USS Callister. Like all Black Mirror episodes, USS Callister takes a modern day dark twist on technology with a backdrop of a Trek-esque world. We give it the deep dive, and have vastly different opinions on Black Mirror’s first entry into their fourth season. Hosted by Clarence Brown, Kyle Jones, and Jonathan Shorts.

A woman wakes up on a Star Trek-esque ship where the crew praise their all knowing and fearless captain.

Also be sure to check out Discussing Who’s review of Black Mirror seasons one through three, and Seth MacFarlane’s teenage short film.
