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.
On the whole this is a very satisfying episode, though, backed up by an incredible score from Alex Somers and Sigur Ros.
[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.
It's a heartwarming episode with a sting in its tail.
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.
The ending reveals "Hang the DJ" to be an impressive conception of the life inside technology, as well as a romantic vision of what it means to find "the one."
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.
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.
The future isn't always what you think it'll be, even if you know exactly how long you've got.
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.
