If the last Skins episode ended on this shot, I would’ve liked it a little more. Still not a lot, but at least a little more. Also, Mini’s problem would’ve been solved had the show remembered that she’s a lesbian, JUSSAYIN’
You should articulate this, because 3 was my least favorite. Maybe because I do not use facebook or have a significant other? Not to say it was bad, any episode of Black Mirror is far better than most other sci-fi(ish) tv.
See, I’m a person who’s very interested in documenting things. I’ve carried a camera around for years and years because my memory is awful. A weird thing I’ve noticed about it is that when you put a camera on most people the way they act changes. Some stop doing what they were doing, some try and enhance it, and some just keep going. So the idea of a world where everyone is always “on” was really interesting to me. I’m also the kind of guy who will over-analyze everything innocuous comment made to me on any given occasion. Having the ability to actually play that back in detail would murder me. I’d never get anything done. I’d live in fear and I’d call everyone on my version of everything. Edit everything with reality TV-style bias. But at the same time that idea is scarily appealing and that aspect fascinates me.
The combination of those two personality traits made that episode tailor-made for me. Plus, in comparison to the previous two episodes it was a much smaller more personal story, which was different. I don’t think it was my favorite episode. I really loved episodes one and two for completely different reasons. Very rarely does a series manage to say so much about a subject without coming off as didactic or soap-boxy. “Black Mirror” did so effortlessly.
I probably explained that poorly. It was wrong of you to ask me to try.
