Hard sci-fi with heart. This is another episode that, if it were a film, would be a Best Picture contender.

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.

Certainly the most uplifting episode of Black Mirror, "San Junipero" works largely due to its perfectly cast pair of leads.

Anything meaningful this episode wanted to say, however, is undermined (or more appropriately obliterated) by the detritus melodramatic nonsense it tries to pass off as legible, thought-provoking storytelling.
