Critic reviews for Shut Up and Dance
The episode felt like too much of an endurance test, with no clear message or moment of redemption to take away from it.
Shut Up and Dance, which has almost zero actual dancing, taps into a fear that's probably crossed everybody's mind at some point now that we're in the internet age: cyber blackmail.
[It's a] soul-scorching, relentlessly riveting new episode .
It's a predictable trajectory, and if it weren't for a set of rock-solid performances, there wouldn't be much else to make this chapter stand out.
As an already-murky story gets darker, and there's nobody left to root for, the closing sequence... is fantastic... It's just a shame that, by that point, it's so difficult to care.
