Black Mirror S3: Eps Ranked

The episodes of Black Mirror Season 3 ranked in terms of greatness. They're all great, don't get me wrong, but some were definitely better than others. List is digs but mostly puns.
Brand New Eyes

Men Against Fire:
Without a doubt the most straightforward story of the season, this one ultimately played too much on predictability. While the length to which it's all explained and such is interesting enough, the audience isn't given enough time to figure stuff out for themselves. The message is a little on-the-nose and the story feels a little flat compared to the rest, it's still worth an hour of your time nevertheless.
5The Police
Ghost in the Machine

This one was a joy to watch, but it squandered it's likable lead and fantastic set-up to deliver an ending that seemed both out of place for the episode's tone (a type of black comedy, if you will) and felt absolutely unwarranted and just plain cruel. Still, it's a great episode and a great insight into the future of VR.
Master of Puppets

Shut Up the Dance:
This one possibly edges out "Hated in the Nation" in the most terrifying episode of the season, if only because of the pure possibility of it all. Some of these episodes take place in the near-future, this one really could happen today. This one seems to rely heavily on some previous Black Mirror cliches, like from "White Bear," but this gets by on the creep factor and the downright messed up ending.
3Green Day
21st Century Breakdown

Creating a surprisingly likable character in Bryce Dallas Howard, this proved to be one of the most upbeat episodes of the season. Ripping to shreds the idea of the almost-became-a-thing app Peeple, "Nosedive" created a completely believable world to mess around in full with a cathartic ending and an important, if simple message, just like all good Black Mirror episodes.
2Queens of the Stone Age
...Like Clockwork

Hated in the Nation:
Using it's feature-length time to maximum effect, this was one seriously fucked up episode of Black Mirror. Slowly uncovering it's massive plot with layer by layer of suffocating tension, this one almost gave me an anxiety attack. It's all masterfully written, and takes some cues from Mr. Robot in it's direction, and successfully delivers a scathing message against internet hate and social media's lack of consequences. Take that all you trolls.
Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends

San Junipero:
A beautiful, loving tribute to life and death. This is the best-natured episode of Black Mirror thus far, and perhaps the best of the entire run. Rather than looking at technology only in fear, it remains hopeful of the good it can do. Good luck watching this one without a dry eye, it's fantastic television.
