No other Black Mirror episode I've seen outgrows its conceptual kiddy ball pit - The Entire History of You is the one that keeps you thinking after you shut Netflix off,not really for the execution but because it the dillema it scripts and where it takes its characters is actually interesting as hell. A complete memory archive seems such an amazing thing and this tale shows exactly why it would and wouldn't.
a standard story of the green eyed monster taking possession of a man...as he begins his downward spiral of obsession, the tech aspect (an implant which can record everything you see and say, imagine!) serves more as a prod to his increasingly unhinged investigations into his partner's maybe infidelity...the said implant isn't portrayed as good or bad, anymore than Facebook, only how it amplifies our mental states
The closest of the first two seasons to feeling like a classic golden era sci-fi story, albeit with updated technology. Due to the recognisable rhythms of Jesse Armstrong's writing, inevitable feels a bit like an episode of 'Peep Show' with none of the laughs, which felt a little uncanny at first. It doesn't deviate from course, but the grim (apparent) fatalism of its tragedy suits its themes. Humans suck!
Final episode from the first season of BLACK MIRROR. Honestly, this episode is quite creepy. It made me to be more grateful about my privacy. Thanks God I can keep my memories for myself. THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF YOU is thought-provoking, chilling, and well-written. It beautifully captured the negative side of advanced technology. It's a satire to memory implant technology. One of my favorite episode from this season.
