Critic Consensus: An exquisite corpse of good ideas never fully formed, "Rachel, Jack and Ashley, Too" struggles to sew its many concepts together -- what does work can largely be attributed to Miley Cyrus' wholly committed and compelling performance.

Critic reviews for Rachel, Jack and Ashley, Too
Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too, may tell its story through a slightly different voice, but the story it imparts undoubtedly belongs in the cruel world of Black Mirror, and represents the best of Brooker's talent as a writer.
The show's take on the genre is also oddly stale, relying on a textbook dichotomy between "pop" and "rock."
"Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too" has enough engaging material to make it the most successful outing of the show's latest season.
It's a little bit of slapstick, a little bit of drama, all wrapped in a few broad messages about predatory music industry marketing practices. It also feels particularly off-brand for "Black Mirror."
