* BrokenBase: There are lots of online debates as to whether the heroine really deserved her fate. On one hand [[spoiler: it's giving her the chance to feel the pain she inflicted on Jemima and her poor family. On the other hand, it's still brutal torture and makes the viewer just as bad as her for taking amusement out of her pain. You could also argue that the park is exploiting the death of a six year old for money - or you could say that the money might go to good causes preventing murders like that happening again. However, punishing someone for a crime that they can't remember seems... a little merciless, regardless of your opinion of Victoria. Whatever side you come down on, expect to have your perceptions of revenge and punishment changed forever. ]]

** Gwendalyn Harris also qualifies. All she did was hold off dating Jamie until the elections were over (less than a week, basically), but loses her chance of winning the election and is humiliated on live TV by the man she confided in, who blabbed her secret to everyone. She comes last in the elections, despite seeming to be the least immoral candidate.

* BrokenAesop: Technology- specifically, the internet- if used improperly, will be humanity's downfall. That being said, the reason most people in the USA heard of Black Mirror was through social media after its release on Netflix, which is the only reason the show is getting a third season.

* {{Anvilicious}}: Charlie Brooker's never been one for subtlety, but this is extreme even by his standards.
* AscendedFridgeHorror: The whole point of the series.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: Once you get past the initial shock of most of the plots, almost all of them are ridiculous and illogical, but hide this behind the claim of satire.
