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.
The finale of Black Mirror S3 is a super stylish feature length episode with one of the most ridiculous premises in the show's history, if you actually care to deconstruct it. "Who did it? Well… I mean, the robot bees, I guess? And Twitter, with hashtags. Something about hacking and online accountability, I dunno. Yeah, fuck it, we'll call the rapper Tusk. What do you mean? Of course Charlie Brooker is God, pfft!"
