      This episode is exactly like a kill la kill episode if you know the anime you probably know what episode I’m talking about it’s about a rebel against a school but in one episode ryuko almost became part of the school btw this anime is about half naked chicks and dudes fighting with power clothes

          Wow, this had to be explained?? This episode is a masterpiece. Even the part you got wrong. The song she sings was not just a hand me down. It was a real song from 1968 by Irma Thomas. The point of the "hand me down" line, IMO, is that in this future, they are only "TOLD" what to listen to. Bing is listening to Selma with his earbuds. Everyone is so lost they don't know anything but the "world they live in"...

            The juice that Bing didn't drink during the talent show is the show's version of "drinking the Kool-Aid". We see that he finally drinks a glass of it once he gets his own show, meaning he has succumbed to the very things he initially hated during his rant onstage.

                      I don't know if anyone noticed, but when Bing was lying in bed with the penguin after Abi goes on Hot Shots, the backside of the penguin looks incredibly yonic. I'm pretty sure it was intentional, maybe the pure piece of art being turned into something obscene, just as Abi is seemingly pure and agrees to do obscene work.

                                i think with the wraith babes its a metaphor for reality tv building up regular people and then whoring them out when theyre no longer popular having to do things they dont want to to stay relevant etc. I also think Bing selling out highlights how a lot of activists who start with good intentions end up becoming activists for profit.

                                    I am honestly waiting for Google and Facebook, Twitch, make the abnoxious mandatory to watch" ads as they use the cameras to monitor where your eyes are.

                                        It's a full in-depth analysis to further understand the subtext and social commentary. It also has facts, easter eggs, things you might have missed, as well as quotes from the cast and crew during the conceptualization and filming of the episode... and much more

                                        I think they are still separated, as I said it's the illusion of freedom, so getting on a show wouldn't give them more privileges

                                        A good analogy to the Arsenal Fan Tv on YouTube. Initially they ranted and critics as an initiative to improve their team performance. However when number of viewers rises, people prefer it as an entertainment rather than critics.

                                              After watching this episode of black mirror I’m really going to try to stare at screens less and be in the real world more.

                                                          Bing is someone who was frustrated with his dead end job and all the oppression that was happening.
                                                          Once he started living in comfort, he didn't want to get involved with that life again.
                                                          This is basically everyone that makes it in life

                                                              Honestly this episode made me more depressed than anything. We're all Bing. We're in the wheel, and at any given moment we'd jump at the chance to get out of it and then tell people "look, you can do it too!" while being sponsored by all the big corporations.
