A nice, unexpected, exploration of populism, that makes itself credible in such a cynical, supposedly post-ideological world. Brilliant screenplay and use of effects always at the service of the story. And the story is not an easy populist bash of polititians. It allows to think about why it is so easy to bash, in a populist way, polititians.
Fun to watch, but not as creative or poignant as the other episodes. The female candidate did say, during her interview at the beginning, that she had committed a series of murders... I didn't understand if that was joke or not, but I thought she would do something more 'radical' about Jamie and Waldo.
THE WALDO MOMENT is the weakest entry in the second season of BLACK MIRROR. I must admit - the concept of this episode is very interesting. It's satire/social commentary about politics. Also - about how a fictional character can influenced people's reaction to their political systems. Too bad, THE WALDO MOMENT seems lost in its interesting idea. It wants to reach something but never got there. But it's still good...
5 - The worst "Black Mirror" thus far. It distinguishes itself from the rest of the series by the fact that it fails as satire; landing cheap shot after cheap shot on every low-hanging fruit in the political spectrum but failing to say anything new or insightful beyond "politicians are dumb and the voters are dumber". The terrible main character also robs it of any pathos. The ending, however, is fantastic.
