Afrofuturism is on the Radar once again, and this time we explore its relationship to Cyberpunk, a related Science Fiction genre.

Netflix has announced the episode titles and cast for “Black Mirror’s” fourth season, which will premiere on the streaming service later this year.
Since “Black Mirror” is an anthology series, each episode is designed as a standalone story. Each one explores the theme of “collective unease with the modern world,” depicting various new ways advanced technology transforms lives – from rating every interaction to uploading one’s consciousness after death to virtually live forever.
The episodes listed below are in alphabetical order and do not necessarily reflect the order they will be presented in when available for streaming. Series creator Charlie Brooker has written every episode of the fourth season.
“Arkangel” stars Rosemarie Dewitt, Brenna Harding and Owen Teague. It is directed by Jodie Foster.
“Black Museum” stars Douglas Hodge, Letitia Wright and Babs Olusanmokun. It is directed by Colm McCarthy.
“Crocodile” stars Andrea Riseborough, Andrew Gower and Kiran Sonia Sawar. It is directed by John Hillcoat.
“Hang the DJ” stars Georgina Campbell, Joe Cole and George Blagden. It is directed by Tim Van Patten.
“Metalhead” stars Maxine Peake, Jake Davies and Clint Dyer. It is directed by David Slade.
“USS Callister” stars Jesse Plemons, Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson and Michaela Coel. It is directed by Toby Haynes. Brooker has co-written this episode with William Bridges.
This show has caught my attention like no other!!
This show, like many others, is fascinated with exploiting the suffering of Black people and calling it art. When you watch, pay attention to how violence is portrayed. Pay attention to who is shown and who isn't.
That said, when it's not fixated on exploiting folks, the concepts are interesting and ask interesting questions.
Some of the episodes I find interesting, some are blah and pointless to me..and others I see as new spins on classic movies such as the body snatchers and episodes of twilight zone *my all time fav!!* I ve been watchin it on Netflix but have only viewed the first 2 seasons. I do like the way they feature people an situations that are say from decades past with up to date or futuristic technology. I think one was a spin off of Star Trek if I remember correctly. Overall I like it
Nice responses, I think it's an excellent show in the tradition of the classics like Twilight Zone, The Dark Side, Fantastic Stories and Outer Limits.
There are several episodes of wild Sci-fi Sci-fact ideas that take a spin on everything we currently do. Various episodes from each season really hit home and make a person think about the direction technology is steering us... or yet which direction we're steering technology. Sometimes the thought can be quite compelling, sometimes even scary. I give a respectful nod to the show for it's exciting originality that's rare these days.
