Black mirror is a reference to the effect of a television or computer screen when switched off, giving a dark reflection of the onlookers.
From the second to the third season, the series changed from being a distinctly British show, with the exception of Jon Hamm in Season 2 Episode 4, Black Mirror: White Christmas (2014), to featuring American actors in most main roles. This was because the first two seasons were produced by British production company Zeppotron, whereas the third, fourth and fifth seasons were commissioned and produced by Netflix, an American company.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Though most Black Mirror episodes are standalone and make no reference to other episodes, the Season 3 finale, Black Mirror: Hated in the Nation (2016), makes the second most references after Black Museum (3). Through the use of the ticker/crawler of the fictional news channel, references are made to Black Mirror: Men Against Fire (2016), Black Mirror: White Bear (2013) and Black Mirror: Playtest (2016).

During Season 3 Episode 2 - Black Mirror: Playtest (2016), when Cooper (Wyatt Russell) reaches the door in the house for the 'Access Point', Katie (Wunmi Mosaku) says, "Would you kindly open the door?" And later says that reaching the access point is them ensuring that he will follow instructions without question. This feels like a reference to the first Bioshock game where the main communication in the game, says "would you kindly" for each objective, and this is found out to be for the same reason as in this episode.
