Charlie Brooker's body of work is defined by its pessimism. From the pointed critique of lazy hipster irony in Nathan Barley to the gory satire of reality shows depicted in Dead Set, his work pinpoints the worst of humanity. Black Mirror continues that bleak trend, sometimes to the point of parody. Earlier this week, Brooker won his first Emmy. It was for the only episode of Black Mirror with a happy ending, "San Junipero".
