Black Mirror #3: “Not everything that isn’t true is a lie.”

We needed a new thread. Any title ideas, we can always rename it.



Previous threads:

#1
#2

Previous discussion from thread #2 was on the comparison with Handmaid's Tale from the last posts of that thread


In Black Mirror news, season 6 on hold?

Thanks for starting this thread. I haven't watched "Handmaid's Tale" at all, so can't compare it to this show.

I can see why people compare them. Both Black Mirror and Handmaid's tale are set in dysphoric worlds.

I don't watch Handmaid's Tale, so don't know the specific story but there are several totalitarian countries around the world, and China had that one child per family policy for 30+ years, so it's not really that far-fetched.

Title ideas:
"So many choices you end up not knowing which one you want."
"Show us something real, free, and beautiful. You couldn't. We're too numb for it."
“Authenticity is in woefully short supply”
“It’s a lot easier to pull the trigger when you’re aiming at the boogeyman.”
“What the f is Netflix?”
“Not everything that isn’t true is a lie.”

Personally I have seen fear that it can happen in the Us but I am like no. In some come countries yes. If it was the Handmaids tale I feel a bunch of politicians and celebrities would be on the execution wall. I just feel that future is to extreme but I am not going to get into that

Where as the world of black mirror I have seen snippets of things like Nosedive and hated in the nation in the us

Well China an argument could be made is overpopulated. I don't think that one child per family policy came out of thin air. The film "1984" is another great example of a totalarian government.

At the end of the day, it makes us rethink the world we live in. I think that's the point of this dysphoric genre.

I particularly like the last one. Do you have any preference Alexa?

I'm watching episode 102 where there's I guess a singing or dancing competition that this "Abi Khan" is going to sing, but not without being degraded first. Geez.

season 1 was really good from what I remember. Also how could anyone forget the first episode. It really sets it off.

Oh yeah. Well I not seen that episode in I think a year, but that's the 1 where everyone records what everybody does I believe with their memory.

people usually remember the best and the worst. I was watching season 4 this week and there was one episode where I thought it wasn't all that good.

Yeah, but since that was the only episode that I had seen of this show I didn't have anything to compare it to about being "best or worst". It was better than the episode of that season I watched tonight I'd say & tomorrow I should be able watch the remaining episodes of season 1.

I remember all the episodes. But I love the series.

The only episode from season 4 I didnt like was Metalhead the black and white one. Arkangel and Crocodile were meh too but I loved the other 3 episodes in that season. 401 is probably my favorite BM episode!
