Kelly MacDonald strongly plays a poorly written, audience-insert lead. Police procedural elements range from fine to network tv bland. Some very suspenseful scenes. Interesting use of technology in this one, combines a few different ideas successfully. Still suffers from generic Hacker-Man Hollywood bs. Sloppily downtalks audience about tech terms. The sidekick, Blue, is pure cringe. Shit wish-fulfillment ending
L'ho trovata troppo lunga e noiosa. Il colpo di scena finale non era a livello di altri episodi e non ho nemmeno capito quale dilemma morale dovrebbe presentare questa storia. Se vogliamo, può spingere lo spettatore a riflettere su quanto facilmente si "odino" le altre persone sul web, di quanto sia facile sparlarne senza pensare alle conseguenze, ma non l'ho comunque trovato particolarmente avvincente.
This episode brilliantly addresses the very-real issue of security of technology (and the possible dangers of keeping all technology within "the cloud"). Brilliant duo of female lead actresses, and fantastic execution. I was much too engrossed in the complexities involved to be at all prepared for the twist at the end. Black Mirror continues to produce the best sci-fi collection in years.
Charlie Brooker's pet theme of 'weaponized public outrage' is taken to its extreme but logical conclusion in "Hated in the Nation," easily one of the most effective and cinematic episodes in the show's canon. The pairing of two mismatched detectives and a conspiracy involving killer bees recall fond memories of "The X-Files," though it must be said "The X-Files" hasn't been this good in decades. A season highlight.
This last episode from the third season of BLACK MIRROR is one of my favorite episode. Maybe because I loved crime/mystery/detective genre. HATED IN THE NATION is thrilling, suspenseful, exciting, & entertaining. This episode proved that BLACK MIRROR still succeed to capture the ugly side of advanced technology. It's frightening 'cause it feels so close to our reality. I hope there would be another episode like this.
