The third episode is interesting in that even when events can be recalled and displayed as objective proof, because the truth is often held by the liar people still lie. I cannot work out what trope that would be.

The whole idea of being rewarded for staring at the screen in the second episode reminded me of Robert Rankin's novel Armageddon: The Musical. In Rankin's post-apocalyptic dystopia, citizens are actually rewarded for pointing their irises at a TV screen, whereas Black Mirror has them paying for the privilege of turning off, but it's the same kind of thing. The protagonist, Rex Mundi, has taught himself to sleep with his eyes open, so the system rewards him for viewing while he's asleep.
