Love, Death and Robots is a great Black Mirror replacement.

It's a series of unrelated short animated sci-fi films of various quality, some (such as Good Hunting, or even the first one, Sonnie's Edge) very schematically feminist; but others, which do not press the present-day agenda, pretty decent. Three Robots, for example, starts very funny. Beyond the Aquila Rift and Helping Hand are good too.

A year ago, an Australian filmmaker Mike Nayna released a three-part documentary about the events at Evergreen. It is centered around the story of Bret Weinstein, which has been told many times already; but it also gives an interesting insight into the changes in the college organisation that had led up to that crisis. Very watchable.
