Black Mirror - Season 1, Episode 3 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Entire History of You

EPISODE:

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Examining how technology amplifies human characteristics, the emotional punch of "The Entire History of You" comes from positing that we don't need futuristic technology to ruin a relationship -- we can do it all by ourselves.

Episode Info

Last in the series of dark dramas. In the near future, everyone has access to a memory implant that records everything they do, see and hear - a sort of Sky Plus for the brain. You need never forget a face again... but is that always a good thing? Starring Toby Kebbell, Jodie Whittaker and Tom Cullen.

This was the least effective of the Black Mirror dramas, because the technological element wasn't so crucial to the trajectory of the story.

Here is Black Mirror doing what only Black Mirror can do - it packages that emotional turmoil in genre concepts that ease you into the trap and only make the final gut punch all the more painful.
