I’ve written another article over at the Threads Website on the first episode of the new Black Mirror Series. Here is an excerpt:
The episode, Nosedive, holds up a stark dystopian mirror to our social media obsessed world, where everyone has a rating and can rate others out of 5 stars. To start with, it’s almost comical, we gently laugh at how similar it is to our social media activities. But, it quickly turns sour as we follow the character Lacie, trying and failing to increase her social status. We begin to notice the fake smiles, awkward conversations and constant comparing to other people.
