    I’m not sure if I agree with your point about Nosedive; I thought that by being so far-fetched, the technology in the episode encourages watchers to consider the implications of popular apps such as Instagram and the effect that they have on their day to day lives. What makes the episode effective is that the software it focusses on already exists, it is just more prominent in the episode and for a modern watcher it is not difficult to imagine a whole society entranced by social media. For this reason, I believe that Nosedive is one of the most powerful episodes of Black Mirror.
