Charlie Brooker is doing some grim and razor sharp Dystopian work on his new show "Black Mirror" especially eps. 2 and 3 of Series One. Ep. 3 portrays the nightmarish reality that would likely occur of transhumanists got their wish and were able to record and playback their memories from a brain implant.

Charlie Brooker explained the series' title to The Guardian, noting: "If technology is a drug – and it does feel like a drug – then what, precisely, are the side-effects? This area – between delight and discomfort – is where Black Mirror, my new drama series, is set. The "black mirror" of the title is the one you'll find on every wall, on every desk, in the palm of every hand: the cold, shiny screen of a TV, a monitor, a smartphone."[1]
