Middling sci fi, should be done better
28 June 2018 | by imdb2-5See all my reviews

Overall, this episode has lofty goals and features very good performances by the actors. But the script is written in a juvenile, detached and unconvincing way. It follows a man who is disturbed by what he sees in society around him.

I'm not sure how others were drawn in but the dialogue and performances by the "candidate" - the leader of a single party system - were so over the top and repetitive that it was not convincing. Does the party leader have nothing to do all day but make speeches? Other parts of this episode feature people not acting in the regular manner we expect, like explaining to someone else why a group of people may be chasing someone or how our protagonist has never noticed the catch phrase of this episode "kill all others" before and this is the first time either (a) he's ever seen it; or (b) he's somehow never noticed it before; or (c) it IS the first time it is used. Neither explanation lays groundwork for this to work.

It's a shame. Wastes good performances by talented people. This comes off as one of the cheaper productions of scifi, like an outer limits type of made for TV story line which doesn't usually happen with its competitor, Black Mirror. Some good concepts and fun in this episode with lampooning what society could be, but this episode isn't sure of itself.
