Trivia

Very early on in the episode we see Mackenzie Davis playing coin-op video games in the eighties which the she is also seen doing in the beginning of series Halt and Catch Fire (2014) See more »

Goofs

When Yorkie is talking about her fiance, she says "My family don't approve," which would be the way a Briton would say that sentence (or write it in a script). If Yorkie is American, she should say "My family doesn't approve," because "family" is a singular noun. However there's no reason to think Yorkie wasn't born in England or grew up there; she may have simply emigrated with her family as a child. See more »

Quotes

Greg: We got a pastor coming tomorrow a.m., and then she's scheduled to pass tomorrow afternoon.
Elder Kelly: "Scheduled to pass." Let's just call it dying.
Greg: If you can call it dying.
Elder Kelly: Uploaded to the cloud, sounds like heaven.
Greg: I guess.

The Most Beautiful Thing
29 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

This episode is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Such a pleasantly unexpected gem in the Black Mirror canon. It's so unique and stands out from the rest of the episodes and yet fits right in (much like Nosedive). I so appreciate the pacing, lighting + tone, acting, casting...everything!

Talk about restoring my faith in storytelling. Mackenzie Davis and Gugu Mbatha-Raw have such great chemistry. The shot compositions are pure art, not to mention a killer score (Clint Mansell) and soundtrack. With this show, you're always waiting for the other shoe to drop and stomp your heart in a million pieces, but this episode left me absolutely speechless with awe and warmth. To all cast and crew involved...thank you.
