Welcome back to Ugly Talk! We've got one more to close the year out, focusing some feel good TV. Black Mirror is a project by the great Charlie Brooker, humorist, satirist, critic, etc, etc. Brooker has produced many short run television series, mostly comedies, but all of which seem to deconstruct the world of entertainment around us and call into question that which we have either ignored or normalized. Black Mirror is the extreme of this deconstructivism as via a Twilight Zone lens of sci-fi conceits to shine a light on some element of media we already live with.
In the episode, Travis and Matt look at how Brooker's deconstructive nature and its influence from the British culture and how you can apply these mindsets to your games.
