More than a Simple Takeaway from Black Mirror

I have one question for Netflix:

Seriously, why do you suck us in this way?

I had no idea the emotional roller coaster I would be in for when I saw that cracked screen cover art and tuned in for short film style episodes of sheer madness.

 

I’m not talking about the Hollywood manufactured responses in me of ‘oh, he or she died…I’m sad’ or ‘oh, that’s a sexy scene…ooh la la’ and all that. I mean, this show is barely a work of fiction.

How does the saying go? Art emulates life. Something to that effect.

Well, this show is art, that’s undeniable, and this is life, last time I checked.

Sandra Harriette 1 ago Further, mind control is not sci-fi, at least not in the way that it gets constantly portrayed In some forms of popular culture This episode was not as much a view of how justice vs. injustice plays out (or allegedly should play out) but rather it was a view cm the gray areas of mind control and other forms of covert human manipulation. So far, ts a recurring theme in the show For all we know, those memories could have been Implanted, information could be twisted and omitted, someone might have set her and maybe even her fiance it was him that did it, if he was even her fiance at all. The courts have been known to, even if it was done out of negligence, make mistakes, which IS why she could very well be the true victim. Either way, its unnatural for that park to exist in either fiction or nonfictiom The white bear being a totem of some kind in this womans mind, it kind of made me wonder why the justice park took on the name, as if they were paying some kind ot homage to it. That can lead to me of two basic conclusions about the white bear theme: Either she conspired to commt the murder and the results of her trial catalyzed such an experimental 'justice" prcn;ram, such as the park, or she is innocent and the real criminals are in the wrong know, seeing they might want to nip around the other way their little "black mirrors" of their own, seeing all their sense of prestige and unfounded indignation They are no different than the people who sit around and pass judgment on the actors in and outside of the roles they play, saying they Cont like them' when they dont even know them firsthand. Either way, the justice park in this episode demonstrates a rather inhumane way to deal with criminals and, like how Martha paid to try and stuff her grief over her lost lover in the other episode, this episode (art emulating life a la "1984") demonstrates yet another example of how the ends justifies the means in the name of profit to the supposed, self-proclaimed higher ups. There were plenty of episodes that seemed realistic throughout alack Mirror. In tact, all of them portray technologies that arent approaching, but rather are already here from the looks of things Some are still in prototype phase IOT is a factor. So IS nanotechnology, as earlier mentioned In another video essay. I mean, this shit, as entertaining and thought-provoking as it is and was overall, still makes me sick, this episode more than any other. Yes, the virtual reality one was scary as all tuck and didnt sleep well that night, but this one hit closer to home. I hate to rant as much as I did just now, but this is such a trigger. Good job anyway on this Video essay, sir Show less Reply • Sandra Harriette 1 ago Further, mind control is not sci-fi, at least not in the way that it gets constantly portrayed In some forms of popular culture This episode was not as much a view of how justice vs. injustice plays out (or allegedly should play out) but rather it was a view cm the gray areas of mind control and other forms of covert human manipulation.
