Thoughts on Hang the DJ

 

StoryThe story here tackles modern dating and the use of apps to help find the so called perfect match. We know the systems are flawed when it comes to knowing being matched up, but this one takes us into a world where we are meant to go through with the full length of a relationship with our matches. As someone who is going or trying to go through dating this is a wonderful look at how the world of dating could go if technology takes over.


Scene of the Episode –
Looking at the clock.

That Moment That Annoyed Me The world could have been explained more, like do they have jobs or not, what is this world all about.

Final ThoughtsThis could easily be the best episodes of Black Mirror, it is one that takes a look at the real-world ideas of how internet dating can never compare to just meeting someone out of the blue, however hard that may well be. This is a story people can relate to moments, from different relationships and does this in a way like nothing we have ever seen before.

 

Overall: This will bring the biggest smile to your face in the series.
