Surprisingly sweet and satisfyingly slight, "Hang the DJ" adds a welcome dose of optimism to the Black Mirror canon.
A sweeter version of the cynicism people watch Black Mirror to see.
There is a greater sense of hope here than in the standard Black Mirror story.
It's a heartwarming episode with a sting in its tail.
[It] does not have the sweep or depth of "San Junipero" but at least smuggles its devastating and sour lines of thinking into a lighter tale about the ultimate matchmaking service.
Unlike many Black Mirror episodes, it has a purely happy ending. But this episode skillfully uses the Black Mirror approach of dropping us into an unfamiliar world and making us figure out the rules as we go.
There's sly humor throughout about the absurdity of automated matchmaking and the story builds to a beautifully touching finish. If you only watch one Black Mirror this season? Make it this one.
Sweeter still, where too many Black Mirror episodes are undone by their final moments, "Hang the DJ" has a delicious final tag that brings the events of the episode into larger, incredibly satisfying relief.
Known by many as the "San Junipero" of this season, "Hang the DJ" succeeds over its predecessor with its satisfying and surprising ending. [Full Review in Spanish]
"Hang the DJ" is a refreshing dose of optimism -- one that shows this anthology is still at its best when it dares to take risks.
The unabashedly romantic, thoroughly not on brand "Hang the DJ" is the best episode in the series' history.
