Black Mirror Analysis: Black Museum


Harry's Moving Castle

I chose not to touch on the final twist regarding Nish's Mother because I genuinely thought it was really stupid that she was in there all along. It ruins any form of independence Nish had and just seemed like a very unnecesary aspect to include. It also seems weird that she possesses a technology that CLEARLY had more negatives than positives, and yet was somehow convinced that putting Mum in there would be a good idea? I thought she was supposed to be smart!

I think the ending is ironic because Nish ended up using the technology which was researched by Rolo. So afterall the sacrifice of the people on whom they experimented paid off in a way.

This really didn’t feel like a typical black mirror episode. It felt like a dark comedy but not like a funny dark comedy or a smart dark comedy. It was a lot like the Netflix series Maniac where you’re not sure if a particular thing is supposed to be funny or serious. Overall, I really did not enjoy it.

How bout a shared timeline not universe. If we start looking at it like that... well. Maybe it males more sense. I mean technically we all share a universe with our thoughts. And black mirror is no different. But a timeline would make more sense. If someone could pin point the technologies and say their origins in time. That would help.

The argument that I am about to make is a little bit out there but here me out and disagree if you choose below. This episode, as Harry describes it, is essentially a warning against putting the advances of technology into the hands of the "greedy" businessman. Nish is portrayed as a heroic women coming to right the wrongs that Rolo has created. Ignoring the underlying assumptions regarding this demonization of capitalism and the "greedy" businessman, the episode does a poor job arguing its fundamental message. Rolo tests new scientific advances on consenting although admirably vulnerable people, even going as far as to take a copy of a convicted murderer who was sentences to death, and displaying this digital representation of his to the public. While this is certainly not ethical, the way the show contrasts this is strange. Nish actually goes as far as to murder someone in real life, a far more serious crime, as well as torturing Rolo forever just as he had overseen. How is it that the only way to defeat this evil capitalist is to murder him, and how would his actual crimes justify this? The fundamental problem this brings us back to is duality of capitalism and technological advances. As has been proven time and time again, technology advances at its fastest rate when it is allowed to develop under capitalism with the least amount of regulation possible. On one hand this is great because technology will solve many great problems within our lifetimes, and the acceleration of this technology should be welcomed. On the other hand, the lack of regulation present in this episode causes other unique problems, as very unethical situations are allowed to take place, such as people being trapped in teddy bears and such. With regulation, there is a also the problem that it can sometimes be hard for legislation and politicians to keep up with the rapidly advancing tech, as was evident by the fact that the UN began to require at least 5 emotion functions in all digital being from that point forward. The episode also seems to make something of a race argument if I'm not mistaken, as the black man is tortured much to the pleasure of wealthy white men. This is a very lazy attempt to inject a message about racial views in the world (regardless of those views legitimacy), and probably does more harm than good.

I found it appropriate that the actor who played Nish was in the second season of the AMC series Humans as a teenage girl who adopted the unemotional persona of a Synth, in order to block the pain of being rejected by her parents.

Remember the story about the pain addicted doctor , that he had a boner during his coma? He then admits that this story was wrong - but only after she said she won’t believe him this story. This implicates that all the stories he told could be wrong or not perfectly true, especially when it comes to Kerry , I wonder if her husband really was that heartless or if he was forced to transfer her into a plushie or if the plushie even contained a consciousness because we didn’t get an insight of Kerry in „black museum“, but only of the protagonists mother.

Just realized that the symbol on the mask of the people in white bear is the same as that symbol from the recent bandersnatch episode do you think that the people who control the justice park are a early version of p.a.c.s before they gain the technology that is used in bandersnatch and I know the time of white bear is way after that of bandersnatch but we can see in bandersnatch that we who are also in the 21st century are able to contact Stefan if you could see this and do some research on it and you could share your opinion on my theory I’m sure someone else has already made this

Let's just be real here for a second. The only person in this episode that ACTUALLY committed a crime, was Nish. She ACTUALLY murdered Rolo. Now what did Rolo did? A lot of immoral things, but not anything illegal or wrong per se. He just tortured AI. Big deal, we murder AI every second of everyday in video games, the difference is that in the Black Mirror universe the AI is made from the consciousness of REAL people, but it's not ACTUALLY THEM, it's just a simulation of their consciousness. Now, it IS creepy to have people be satisfied at looking at AI being tortured so brutally, but they're not actually hurting anyone, unless of course you count the relatives/friends of the person who is being depicted by the AI, but that's the deal that that person took, to give permission for his/her consciousness to be depicted by an AI. So, really, the real criminal here is Nish, and possibly her father (although the episode does make it look like he's innocent), not for torturing the AI of Rolo, but for actually murdering a living and breathing human being (Albeit not a very moral human being, but still).

I loved the message at the end of the episode. Revenge has the potential of making you just as evil as the person you're avenging. Nish turning ugly at the end of the episode is a chilling message about our self righteousness. Whenever we see nasty people commit terrible actions, we end up thinking like Nish. In that regard, she represents us.

Tbh I think it was fair that Rolo was killed. If there was legally no other way for him to stop with his unethical acts and perserving the eternal torture of her father then he must be killed. She should have destroyed the keychain though to show that this wasn't purely out of revenge but I guess that was put there so BM questions what we think is right.
