A suspenseful, satirical three-part mini-series that taps into collective unease about our modern world.
Meet Waldo... a CGI blue bear from a children's educational TV show who in reality is an anarchic character on a satirical late-night topical comedy show. Behind the scenes, Waldo is voiced and controlled by failed comedian Jamie Salter. When the channel decide they would like to give Waldo his own pilot, the production company enter him into a political race against one of his victims, Conservative Liam Monroe, for a stunt. Jamie isn't comfortable with politics - he just sees himself as a clown - but once the wheels start turning there's no stopping the thing. So what can Jamie do?
As the title suggests, the show holds a mirror up and shows us the pit falls that modern society has. Often showcasing enhanced technology it shows us the not too distance future and how human nature, with the help of advanced technology, can be warped into something almost evil. Each episode is a stand-alone story that addresses a different aspects of modern life; my personal favourite being 15 Million Merits.
