The Sopranos and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch premiered 20 years apart, but they're oddly complementary
January 10 will mark the 20th anniversary of The Sopranos premiere. The groundbreaking HBO series and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch are "products of two different TV eras," says James Poniewozik. "The former lets the viewer direct the story (sort of) through a series of choices. The latter was the work of a creator who resisted catering to his audience and ended his series on a big, fat question mark. But as different as the two works are, they’re oddly complementary. Each is an example of the tension between two ways of seeing fiction. Is a story a puzzle to be solved or a mystery to be pondered?"
