If someone has not seen himself as the protagonist of a chapter of Black Mirror at this point, it is that he has lived confined in his house without seeing anyone ... or that he does not have Netflix , come on. In the last three months, life has been turned around and science fiction is " live now, everywhere ".

With this panorama, the networks offer a good mirror in which to look at oneself. The proverb says it: bad for many, consolation for fools. But consolation, after all.
