Black Mirror Season 5 - Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too - Screaming robot doll scene
Publication/Creation DateJune 5 2019
DescriptionIn Black Mirror's Season 5, Episode 3, Ashley-O, teen pop sensation, has an entire line of Ashley-Too companion smart toys that mimic her personality. After the original Ashley-O falls into a drug-induced coma, the dolls begin suffering extreme technical glitches.
Rachel, a pre-teen with a huge Ashley-O obsession, convinces her sister to help fix her glitching Ashley-Too, only to accidentally remove a "limiter" built into the devices. Ashley-Too reveals that Ashley-O's brain is uploaded into every toy, then outfitted with a limiter to keep her responses family friendly. With the limiter removed, Ashley-Too becomes significantly more aggressive and more alike the original — effectively becoming a human in a tiny robot body.
