'Black Mirror' Creator Reveals The Reason Behind The Show's Title—And We're Creeped Out

The eerie charm of Black Mirror has always been its unsettling and provocative realism. Set in a not-so-distant future and a not-so-different reality, each story hits disturbingly close to home.

But for many fans of the show, this revelation is hitting even closer.

It turns out the show's writer and creator, Charlie Brooker, revealed the meaning of the show's title way back in 2011.

In an interview with The Guardian, Brooker said:

The "black mirror" of the title is the one you'll find on every wall, on every desk, in the palm of every hand: the cold, shiny screen of a TV, a monitor, a smartphone.

When you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares back.

For some fans the realization was just too much...

While others were embarrassed it took them this long to figure it out:

In a show known for its twists, the best one might have been staring us in the face all along.
