An astonish look at the human nature
14 November 2016 | by nisreenmrSee all my reviews

Extremely good episode, one of the best so far. It lets you think about the true, harsh, judgmental human nature.

People tend to deal with other people when they think that person might enhance their reputation, connections, or material situation. It's like when we buy expensive gifts for rich people, and we never spend as much on people in need who can't afford to pay us back. We walk away from our friends if we felt they are affecting our situations negatively, sometimes without even trying to help.

On another level, it shows the effect, and falseness of social media network on our daily lives. We tend to look perfect and connect with the right people, while hiding the true us with all of our pain and struggles. I loved this episode but I dropped a star because I don't agree that the alternative "true self" they suggested will do any good for human nature.
