This might belong in the Fridge, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

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 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?

Just to expand on the Christmas special ending. Scariest television moment of 2014.

*** The ending follows on from that. Coming back to the main cabin towards the end of the third narrative, [[spoiler: Joe begins to notice unusual details in the cabin, such as strange noises or the clock from his ex's father's house, where he murdered the old man. Questioning what is happening, Matt calms him and asks him to finish his story. Upon confessing, Matt sighs in relief, before vanishing. It is revealed that Joe was a cookie of the real Joe, still under arrest and refusing to talk at all. Matt is released thanks to securing a confession from the silent Joe, but as a result of the 'Harry S. incident', he is blocked by THE WHOLE WORLD. Worse, he appears bright red, marking him as a criminal and possibly sexual deviant to everyone. Joe's cookie meanwhile has his time perception altered to a thousand years a minute for Christmas, at which point 'Oh I Wish it Could Be Christmas Everyday' comes onto the radio. Every time Joe smashes the radio, the song gets louder, and the episode ends with him curled up, alone and screaming... for over a thousand years.]]
