Critic reviews for San Junipero
San Junipero was easily my favorite of this batch of Black Mirror episodes... Its tone was so radically different -- this is the one story in which the implications of future technology are somewhat bright, and I was all the more relieved for it.
This episode, which plays with the ol' heart strings like it's been taking lessons, has plenty of big twists.
What holds your interest is Mbatha-Raw -- who brings enough vivacity and conviction to what's essentially a cipher of a role for the proudly tearjerking ending to land with a satisfying emotional thwack.
If you only watch one episode of this season, this is the one I recommend. San Junipero is getting a huge amount of praise, especially from the LGBTQIA community and it's well deserved.
Easily my favorite of the bunch, and the closest that Black Mirror is likely to get to an unabashedly happy ending.
