It is a show-and-tell presentation with far more telling than exhibiting, and the climax of the episode is an explosion of exposition.
18. “Arkangel” (Season four, Episode 2)

A mother makes use of a tool that tells her daughter’s location and information what she sees, which might naturally have horrific ramifications for a mother-daughter relationship — and it does. The predictable conclusion of the episode might have been satisfying if the stakes had been increased, however the episode performs it secure, and solely cares to look at essentially the most cliche elements of a teen’s life.
17. “Fifteen Million Deserves” (Season 1, Episode 2)
Earlier than “Get Out” and “Black Panther,” Daniel Kaluuya starred in a weak “Black Mirror” episode, however he provides a powerful efficiency. The episode follows Kaluuya’s character Bing in a society the place folks trip power-generating stationary bikes in trade for deserves. He falls for a lady who can sing superbly, and he convinces her to enter a contest wherein he makes use of all of his thousands and thousands of deserves to present her an entry ticket. Issues naturally collapse from there. The episode is a fantastic commentary on greed and commercialism, however does not rise above higher episodes.
