Netflix has taken a giant step for mankind, allowing us to choose our own adventure. The idea is to mix elements of video games with traditional TV, allowing viewers to make decisions as they watch. They’ll take the plunge with an episode of “Black Mirror,” which makes sense because the show is about futuristic technology. Season 5 of “Black Mirror” drops in December. This will be the first of a new line of “interactive” content that Netflix is developing. Two other potential projects involve adaptions of video games, but they’ll be actual shows, movies, or specials- no video games.
