Slow Start but worth it
21 October 2016 | by srj-krokSee all my reviews

This programme is everything I've learned to love about "Black Mirror". It is a wonderful satire about our obsession with social media and the approval of our peers.

Hand on heart, it started slowly for me, both in terms of pacing and content, but my engagement and investment in the characters and story seemed to grow exponentially throughout. The final exchange is magnificent.

I would enjoy delving more into the different stories within this world. To follow the lives of differently rated people.

This is science fiction at its very best. Nosedive uses a fictional social construct to examine our faults and give us further personal insight to the unhealthy obsession we have over the thoughts of others, the desire for recognition and the facades we present to those we 'love'.
