*** The [[StepfordSmiler fake smiley-happy]] people in the 'nice' bits don't help either. At one point, we see a woman and a baby talking with a man through a FaceTime-like app on a tablet computer. It's all very shiny and happy and nice. Then later in the trailer, we see another shot of the woman and the baby. The baby is crying, obviously upset or frightened at something. The woman? She's still smiling... but it's a very glassy and frozen fake smile.

** [[spoiler: It's easy to miss, but the "gashed" party guest mentions suffering very little after effects, saying she retained her sight. One might wonder what other horrible effects Liam is risking, and what the black screen at the end means for him.]]

* 15 Million Merits is an emotionally shaking experience throughout, but one of the worst moments comes when the protagonist Bing [[spoiler: is forced to watch his friend Abi, now a porn star, having sex with another man in an advert. He can't skip the advert due to lack of 'merits', and when he closes his eyes, the room he's in emits a piercing tone till he opens them.]] Just imagine yourself in his position...

** The first segment: a young man tries to romance an attractive outsider, only to discover [[spoiler: she's an undiagnosed schizophrenic, and believing she has found a kindred spirit, gets him to commit suicide with her. By forcing poison down his throat.]]

** It's apparently now legal to "block" someone indefinitely, even when they believe you have a child with them, denying all custody and visitation rights unilaterally.



*** To clarify [[spoiler: Joe's cookie confesses the murder of his ex-girlfriend's father and is left there, completely alone. To add insult to injury, one of the cops speeds up his perception of time, making one minute in the real world correspond to 1000 years for the cookie! And leaves him like that all of Christmas' Day with one annoying song with the volume turned way up!That's right: He has to suffer more than one million years alone, with the full knowledge of what he has done, alone and knowing he's not real with the most ironic soundtrack in the history of ever. ]] It's safe to say this could be the most accurate depiction of Hell ever portrayed without any supernatural element.

*** Ordinarily he would likely be {{driven to suicide}}, but since he's a digital being that's probably not even possible. Instead he's [[AndIMustScream stuck there with no escape]].

** The second series trailer is arguably much worse- beginning as a riff on Apple and gadget adverts, it has a 'wrong' vibe from early on, thanks to a [[MachineMonotone digital voiceover]] not dissimilar to that in '[[{{Radiohead}} Fitter, Happier]]'. However, it soon gets plain disturbing...

*** It's also pretty scary from the perspective of users who don't know what they're really getting into. If your "cookie" finally snaps, what sort of revenge could they get on you? Could they lock you in your house? Scald you in your shower? Blow out the pilot light and gas you? How much power are they trusted with? And you probably already have devices/applications which learn your habits and preferences. As smarter versions are developed, will we in the real world eventually be condemning intelligent consciousnesses to predicting when we'll want our toilet seats warmed up for us?
