'Black Mirror' Is Real And That's What Makes It Terrifying

It can only be handled by those who thrive in dark humor.

Everyone’s been talking about "Black Mirror." I heard tales of horror about this show but I also heard how brilliant it was and that’s what made me finally watch it. I wasn’t disappointed. Not one bit.

Yes, "Black Mirror" is scary, but not the kind of scary you are thinking about. It isn’t the kind of scary like "Conjuring" or "Insidious;" it isn't jump scares. It’s the type of horror that sneaks up on you when you finish the episode, switch off the laptop and then sit down and think about how normal it seemed or how futuristic. The one thing that is true about all "Black Mirror" episodes is how relatable it is. After every episode, it is something you could see yourself doing in the future.

And then suddenly it’s terrifying.

One wrong decision or wrong step and our lives could become a "Black Mirror" episode (case in point: "The Waldo Moment"). It is completely horrifying to think about and that's what makes Black Mirror a show that can’t be binge-watched for most people. Watching more than one episode per day can only be handled by those who thrive in dark humor.

Every episode starts off as casually as possible and it lures the watcher in by allowing them to think that it is going to be a normal, sweet, nice and completely bland episode but then there is always a dark twist that derails the whole episode and leaves the watcher completely blindsided. That is when you know you have watched a "Black Mirror" episode.

Each episode attacks a different form of technology or focuses on a slightly more developed form of pre-existing technology and makes it better or worse. "Black Mirror" exists in the grey area of morals that shows how technology brings about a new way of thinking and a new set of rules on which the world revolves.

"Black Mirror" is necessary to watch because the human race needs to stop and think about what we are doing with technology. Like the wise wandmaker, Garrick Ollivander said about Voldemort, “he did terrible things, terrible but great”, this can be applied to technology. It is amazing and brilliant but we must be careful about the implications of it in our lives.

If all of this didn’t convince you to watch it, let me just tell you this. "Black Mirror" may be thrilling and worrisome, but also incredibly smart and outrageous in the best possible way. It will make you think, it will make you frustrated and horrified and it will be the best thing you have watched this year. Take it from one addicted "Black Mirror" fan, it will blow your mind.

25 Songs For The Struggling Christian

Add these to your own "looking up" list.

Everyone has a bad day every once and a while, it's a given. Life isn't all about rainbows and butterflies, as much as we would all love for it to be. As a Christian, I spend a lot of time on those hard days "looking up" for comfort and reassurance. Some days, "looking up" actually means flipping through the scripture and asking God to lead me to the verses I need to read, but over the past few months "looking up" has been a completely different process... it's been just turning my "Looking Up" playlist on shuffle and just listening to the music flowing through the room.

I know I sound crazy, but I promise, these are the songs that can start the healing of any season of life.

2. Chain Breaker - Zach Williams

"If you've got pain, He's a pain taker. If you feel lost, He's a way maker. If you need freedom or saving, He's a prison-shaking Savior. If you've got chains, He's a chain breaker."

3. God's Not Dead - Newsboys

"God's not dead, He is surely alive. He is living on the inside, roaring like a lion."

6. Need You Now - Plumb

"How many times have you given me strength to just keep breathing? Oh, I need You. God, I need You now."

7. You Are I Am - Mercy Me

"You're the one who conquers giants. You're the one who calls out kings. You shut the mouths of lions. You tell the dead to breathe. You're the one who walks through fire. You take the orphan's hand. You are the one Messiah. You are I Am."

8. Redeemed - Big Daddy Weave

"I am redeemed, You set me free. So I'll shake off these heavy chains, and wipe away every stain, now I'm not who I used to be. I am redeemed. Thank God, redeemed."

9. Whom Shall I Fear - Chris Tomlin

"I know who goes before me, I know who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side. The One who reigns forever, He is a friend of mine. The God of angel armies is always by my side."

10. I Need A Miracle - Third Day

"No matter who you are, and no matter what you've done, there will come a time when you can't make it on your own. In your hour of desperation, know you're not the only one praying 'Lord above, I need a miracle'."

11. Worn - Tenth Avenue North

"Let me see redemption win. Let me know the struggle ends, that You can mend a heart that's frail and torn. I want to know a song can rise from the ashes of a broken life, and all that's dead inside can be reborn. 'Cause I'm worn."

12. Your Love Never Fails - Newsboy

"Your love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me."

13. Savior, Please - Josh Wilson

14. By Your Side - Tenth Avenue North

"Cause I'll be by your side whenever you fall, in the dead of night whenever you call, and please don't fight these hands that are holding you. My hands are holding you."

15. Voice of Truth - Casting Crowns

"But the voice of Truth tells me a different story, and the voice of Truth says 'Do not be afraid', and the voice of Truth says 'This is for My Glory'. Out of all the voices calling out to me, I will choose to listen and believe the voice of Truth."

16. Give Me Your Eyes - Brandon Heath

"Give me Your eyes for just one second, give me Your eyes so I can see everything that I keep missing. Give me Your love for humanity. Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted, the ones that are far beyond my reach. Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten. Give me Your eyes, so I can see."

17. How He Loves - David Crowder

"He is jealous for me. Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy. When all of a sudden I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory, and I realize just how beautiful You are and how great Your affections are for me. And, oh, how He loves us so."

Will I dance for You, Jesus? Or in awe of You be still? Will I stand in Your prescence? Or to my knees will I fall? Will I sing hallelujah? Will I be able to speak at all? I can only imagine. I can only imagine, when all I will do, is forever... forever worship You."

23. The Motions - Matthew West

"I don't wanna go through the motions, I don't wanna go one more day without Your all consuming passion inside of me. I don't wanna spend my whole life asking... What if I had given everything? Instead of going through the motions."

24. Cry Out To Jesus - Third Day

"When you're lonely and it feels like the whole world is falling on you. You just reach out, you just cry out to Jesus. Cry out to Jesus."

25. Hold My Heart - Tenth Avenue North

"One tear in the driving rain. One voice in a sea of pain. Could the Maker of the stars hear the sound of my breaking heart? One life, that's all I am. Right now, I can barely stand. If You're everything You say You are, would You come close, and hold my heart?"
