Black Mirror Analysis: Shut Up and Dance

What I don't get is, it's just a video of him jerking off. There's nothing to suggest what he was watching in the video, so there's a limit to how it could be used against him.

also: did the thought of "mindy" possibly being underage (perhaps a child even) cross anybody else's mind? not sure if i remember correctly but if i do nothing in the episode actually tells us she was an adult so i'm guessing the makers purposely left that piece of information out to mak the audience wonder...

it's probably been pointed out by some else before, but since we don't really find out what kind of pictures kenny looked at, it may very well be stills of children (perhaps even infants) being raped or something of similar cruelty. saying that his viewing didn't directly hurt anybody only seems half the truth in such a case really...

People arguing in the comments about whether or not calling Kenny a pedophile is right or not just need to agree to disagree... this is not a subject where people’s views will generally be changed...I think everyone is on the same page that pedophilia is wrong and we all want children to be protected.... I think that’s important to remember because we all have the same goal in mind.... a difference in opinion about the future of Kenny and what he deserved won’t be something you’re gonna change someone else’s mind about. ✌️

When I watched it for the first time I didn't understand why he was so embarrassed about watching porn, I thought he was an over paranoid idiot for going through all this trouble just because he didn't want his nudes to get out. Now I realize it was child porn so that clears up some stuff.

The crazy thing to me is that I always thought that he was watching normal porn. But what he didn't want was having a video of him masturbating going into the internet. When his mother says that he was watching child porn, I thought that the hackers edited the video to make look like it, and not that he was really watching child porn.

For anyone wondering what technology was used in order for the hackers to gain access to Kennys computer. When Kenny installed the .exe file of Shrive Malware Remover it contained a backdoor (basically a secret unlocked door into whoever’s PC that it’s installed and opened on) so when Kenny ran the file he allowed the people to access his PC and webcam. This is also called a rat. It was given the term rat as the animal “rats” are usually sneaky and tend to get places normal things can’t. Your welcome. (If you do happen to take on the challenge of ratting/backdooring someone be careful as it is highly illegal and breaches the data protection act)

The malware remover is what did this, not the virus. In the beginning, Kenny downloads a malware remover called "Shrive". Shrive means confess your sins. Because Kenny downloads this himself as a malware remover, the computer doesn't recognize it as a malware itself. The hacker is the person the made the malware remover.

There is no other hand and yes Kenny was hurting people by watching it in his room privately. Do you think McDonalds would sell burgers if nobody wanted them? Shit analogy on my part but you get what I mean Sure pedophiles might be sick in the head, but as soon as you act upon those thoughts, other than to get help, you are as bad as the people that produce it

My genuine initial reaction to the ending was that I thought they pretended he watched child porn so I was angry that they even managed to have enough proof from just a video of him fapping. I didn't realise it was supposed to be that he genuinely watched it until I seen people discussing it. Don't know why it took me so long to cotton onto that.

I could be wrong, but I think there is a broken mirror somewhere in every episode of Black Mirror. Just some instances I can think of right now: Series 1 Episode 3 - the main character uses a broken piece of glass to threaten his own life to the judges Series 3 Episode 2 - The gamer man tries to cut the black pip out of the back of his neck with a broken piece of glass Series 3 Episode 4 - The black woman in the toilet punches the mirror smashing it.

You know what's annoying? When pedophiles don't seek professional help and indulge in sexual fantasies of children, or assault them. The only reason to defend any pedophile is if they are willing to seek help.

I'm surprised that no one has suggested that the reason they made kenny rob the bank and kill the other pedophile wasn't for their own entertainment, but so that they would have solid evidence of his crimes that wasn't illegally obtained, and to make sure he would be punished for it.

The thing is the twist could actually be found when Kenny is about to fight the other pedophile in the woods. The guy says “what’d they get you on” Kenny doesn’t reply, and the man says knowingly “How young..?” To which Kenny has no reply. I didn’t pick that up first watch, but it’s heavily implied that Kenny too was pedophilic in nature at that moment.

Im gonna drop off the fact that when he started to watch, purple screen flashed his face. At the end scene, when he was arrested, the same hue flashed on his face. I think that is saying something along the lines that he (should) knows he will get arrested patronizing those kinds of things but he still does it. also cannot help but pity Kenny just because the plain fact that Alex Lawther played James on the End of Fu**ing world and I watched it earlier. If I watched this first, i still wouldve applaud him for his performance but would not feel as bad.

The man that Kenny fought did not win. It was a fight to the death and Kenny is alive after fighting, just very hurt. He is also shown walking out of the woods with his bag, the same one he stored the money in that would become prize money. This means the hackers made a young man kill somebody for nothing, adding a worse crime onto the one he already done, making the whole thing worse for Kenny.
