As Kiran Sonia Sawar notes, however, "memories can be subjective", and they're hardly a ideal record of events. As well as presenting his own twisted take on Star Trek, Brooker's fourth season will also offer fans a Black Mirror episode about online dating and one about the dangers of over-parenting. Charlie Brooker's dark anthology series offers a bleak view of the present and future of humanity, but it's nearly always a mind-bending ride. We're also very much looking forward to "Arkangel", which features a story directed by Jodie Foster about the "helicopter parents" of a young daughter and the new technology created to keep her "safe".
The popular series, which won an Emmy a year ago in television movie and television movie writing for the "San Junipero" episode, will return with six brand new episodes. The episode is directed by Toby Haynes (Dr. Who) and stars Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad), Micahela Cole and Jimmi Simpson.
- "Metalhead", directed by David Slade (30 Days of Night, Hannibal) and starring Maxine Peake (The Theory Of Everything, The Village), Jake Davies (The Missing, A Brilliant Young Mind), Clint Dyer (Hope Springs).
After fearing the worst case scenario when her daughter mysteriously vanishes and returns back seamlessly, a dire mother is willing to attempt anything to stop the occurrence of unfolding again.
While it's hard to live up to the lofty standards of "San Junipero", we can say there is an episode this season that come close to reaching its heartfelt message. "Crocodile" is a bleak, dark, paranoid, techno-noir thriller.
You've been kind and patient all year, and now Netflix is ready to reward you: There's an official release date for Black Mirror Season 4.
