Black Mirror, “The National Anthem,” “15 Million Credits,” and “Be Right Back”
Unrelently dark satire, which is much needed at the moment. “Be Right Back” turned out to be my favorite, because it showed technology interrupting a woman’s grieving process—who wouldn’t want to see their loved ones again after their death? I was particularly fascinated by the fact that the synthetic Ash is TOO good at being kind and open and receptive, which is what makes him so unreal to Martha. She would have to fight for his attention, so to have the Ash-bot patiently await her every need? Spooks her.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars, “Overlords,” “Altar of Mortis,” and “Ghost of Mortis”
Anakin nearly breaking down completely on seeing what, at first, appears to be Shmi’s ghost broke my heart.
