In case you missed it, Black Mirror's "San Junipero" episode covered a lot of ground. There was queerness. Technology. The 1980s, kind of. And people fucking loved it.
And tonight at the Emmys, the world showed their love: The episode took home two awards, for Outstanding Made-for-TV Movie and Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special.
People were, in a word, THRILLED.
It meant a lot.
Of course, we can't have everything.
But maybe there is hope after all.
And at least we'll always have those 61 minutes of television.
