User Reviews

Great episode, negatove reviews are for the wrong reasons
15 March 2018 | by ikke61See all my reviews

This episode was fantastic. The acting was amazing, the best and most engaging I've seen yet in black mirror (I watched S1, S2 and a couple of episodes from S3 and S4). But the most interesting part was the plot. The subject is more relevant then ever. Watch this one, don't be alarmed by the negative reviews as I'll explain next!

Of the negative reviews I read here one says it should have been about religious brainwashing as that has happened before. You have got the wrong series buddy, black mirror is a look into the future. And in the current age of splinternet bubbles, fake news and in the (not too distant) future AI and nueralink-type developments this topic is exceptionally up to date and this episode is extremely relevant.

Of the other negative reviews most of them say this premise has been done in a show called the outer limits, which is why they gave it a low rating. What nonsensical reasoning, everything has been done before. I don't know why you guys bothered to write a review.
