Bandersnatch (Black Mirror) Review

Bandersnatch is the famous creature that appeared first in 1871 sequel of Lewis Carroll, What Alice Found, and Through the Looking Glass contributing to the literature of children in a game-changing way. As part of a most renowned shard of the nonsense of Carroll ( the Jabberwocky poem) it emerged fleetingly, further, it appeared as a whip-fast, snapping, and biting being that resides in the land behind the specific looking glass.

A picture of the early 1980s has been shown by Bandersnatch and it focuses upon a game programmer who is young Stefan Butler and is living with this father and is suffering from anxiety issues.
