Critic reviews for Hated in the Nation

Hated in the Nation is blunt, but its target is diffuse... It's a depressing note to end Black Mirror on, but a fitting one -- a caution to its audience to never feel too high and mighty about your conduct online.

The story is 90 minutes of classic pulp mystery (feature-length ain't no thang on Netflix mang), but because this is one of the darkest sci-fi series to ever hit the small screen.
