"Arkangel" is the Jodie Foster-directed episode that asks some pretty darn good questions about parenting - like, "should I stick a needle in my kid's temple so that I can control them?"

Not to worry though, because at least we'll have the Black Mirror to keep us company.

The trailer for "U.S.S. Callister" (see the video in the space above) is the final Black Mirror season 4 episode trailer to arrive online.

The anthology series often takes a bleak look at how technology has changed us for the better - and for the worse.

The responses are often as diverse as the Black Mirror episodes themselves, which run the gamut from a brisk black-and-white horror thriller to a length Star Trek parody.

Cole herself looks like a fun character - while off-ship on a mission, she starts to whine about an overly dramatic villain and is immediately shushed by a more dedicated crew member.

The trailer begins with footage from "Crocodile", the first episode in the series, which stars Bloodline's Andrea Riseborough - spotted delivering a speech to herself in a mirror and downing a glass of wine in the series trailer - as well Outlander's Andrew Gower, and relative newcomer Kiran Sonia Sawar. And obviously he's going to tell some of those sick, sad stories.

- "Black Museum", directed by Colm McCarthy (The Girl with All the Gifts) and starring Douglas Hodge (The Night Manager, Catastrophe), Letitia Wright (Humans, Ready Player One), Babs Olusanmokun (Roots, The Defenders).

Netflix spent a long time teasing out the release date for "Black Mirror" Season 4, doing this whole dance with poster and trailer releases for each of the individual six episodes. The reasons are usually just creepy ones that say a lot about humanity's inherent failings.
