After watching Nosedive, I felt an overwhelming sense of guilt and fear. I felt guilt because I knew how close to that corrupted society our generation has become. I felt fear because a society based entirely on outward appearance and endless facades conveys the essence of what our society is today.
"Black Mirror’s" Nosedive presents an alternate future in which social media controls all aspects of daily life. The episode stars Bryce Howard as a social media obsessed 20-something named Lacie Pound. Alice Eve os Lacie’s beautiful and successful childhood friend, Naomi.
Charile Brooker's "Black Mirror" is a series of stand-alone dramas that explore the near future. NoseDive is a episode within the series that explores what the future would look like if we lived life through phone ratings.
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.
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.
Nosedive is an episode from the British science fiction television series "Black Mirror." It was created by Charlie Brooker. This episode is about society having a rating for everything that is social, such as food, conversations and personalities.
I had actually seen this specific episode from the series “Black Mirror” a few weeks prior in my sociology class, but watching it a second time was definitely different and much more eye-opening than the first.
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.
After watching this episode of "Black Mirror," I left the classroom feeling discouraged, afraid, and honestly a little bit anxious about what the future of social media holds for our world.
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 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.
I think the episode of "Black Mirror "called Nosedive is realistically scary. There is no doubt technology will run the human existence for the rest of time. It is everywhere and continues to consume us.
When we watched Nosedive, the episode of "Black Mirror" in class, I had seen it before, as I have watched the entire show on my own. "Black Mirror" is a science fiction anthology show that focuses on satirical examinations of our society and how it may progress.
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.
