3. “Rachel, Jack and Ashely Too” (Episode Three)
If anyone out there is complaining that this episode of Black Mirror is terrible, I’d challenge them to go watch some of the low points of the latest Twilight Zone — you’ll be singing a different tune about “Rachel, Jack and Ashely Too” once you do. It’s not great, no (that’s why it came in third) as the writers have too many themes on their mind, the human Miley Cyrus storyline doesn’t really work and the ending is pretty goofy, but I still wouldn’t call it bad. A bit of a letdown, perhaps, but there are still some pretty Black Mirror-y moments thrown in this thing here and there — all the stuff with those little robots (including the robot mice) is pretty cool, I think.
