REVIEW: Black Mirror's White Bear Proves That Simulations And Torture Is An OK Combo For A Friday

Imagine waking up and not knowing who you are, where you are, or what to order on UberEats. You open your eyes while sitting in a random chair just rocking your way back and forth into thought. What I'm trying to say is, we've all been there in some way shape or form from our early 20's. But, in the eyes of Charlie Brooker, we were living through horror alongside a strange woman who clearly looks like she needs help.

Apparently, that wasn't the case for Victoria Skillane, played by actress Lenora Crichlow, who was placed in the shittiest of situations for the next 45 minutes as I'm just sitting back eating popcorn.


The start of my last Black Mirror review on "White Christmas" really took a turn for the best. As I rewatched it more times to count, White Bear pops up as symbolism given how the main characters have been treated inside the episodes.

Hence: Simulation. Because we should know by now, this show isn't normal.
