Episode Info:

If you could rely on technology to find you the perfect mate – like a 99.8% match – would you do it? That’s the story behind Season 4, Episode 4 of Black Mirror, “Hang the DJ.”

Synopsis: Paired up by a dating program that puts an end date on relationships, Frank and Amy begin to question the system’s logic. (Spoilers ahead.)

Join Shannon and Fadra as we discuss online dating, the pros and cons of staying with someone who might not be your perfect match, and how the characters in “Hang the DJ” handle their “assignments.”

We also discuss the origin of the title, which comes from a song by The Smiths called “Panic.”

A Look in the Mirror

How far off is this technology? Online dating pioneer eHarmony announced it is developing an AI-enabled feature which nudges users to suggest meeting in person after they have been chatting in the app for a while. And British dating app Loveflutter plans to use AI to analyse chats between its users to determine their compatibility and suggest when they should meet.
