Who would want to live in a world of fake popularity?

There are always new shows and movies coming out about “the future," but I have yet to watch anything close to how this episode, Nosedive, portrays our world in such a different way. In this episode, everyone is rated from one, which is the lowest rank, to four, which is the highest.

People today prefer to record video rather than help someone

I feel like Nosedive shows the reality of social media. "Black Mirror" is accurately depicting how people use social media, and in a sense, the show is showing what social media and life could eventually turn into.

Technology will not replace the basic instinct of human interaction

As a whole, I'm not fond of this show. It seems a bit much to me. That's exactly how I feel about this episode too. I don't want my lack of interest in this show or the entire series to convey that I don't appreciate the overall message. I think what the writers have created is a brilliant idea drawn from our obsession with technology. So I suppose it may be confusing that I don't like the show.

The beauty of life is authenticity

After watching the Nosedive episode of "Black Mirror," I was astounded by how well the producers depicted the futuristic world to become. This episode was about the effects social media has had on its consumers. As soon as I started watching it, I thought this couldn't be the way we act. However, I was wrong. Sadly, we as humans tend to "rate" people based on first glance.

The future may result in no true social interaction

The first episode of "Black Mirror" will have you thinking in several different ways. Growing up, we have always seen aspects of the "future" in many movies, comics, and TV shows. We are so technologically advanced that many of us are left wondering, "What is next?" It would be shocking if the human race could manage to get even more dependent on tech, but new things are always coming.

Review of Hated in the Nation

I decided to review my favorite episode of the Netflix series "Black Mirror." Hated in the Nation is my personal favorite for several reasons, and I believe it says a lot about the (theoretical) future influence of technology and the media on our lives.
