'Black Mirror' Season 4 Trailer Looks at Implanting Chips Into Children

'Black Mirror' Season 4 Trailer Looks at Implanting Chips Into Children

But how far is too far?

In episode "Arkangel", a scared mother gets something implanted into her daughter's brain following a kidnapping scare in a quiet suburban neighbourhood.

Turkey Says Trump Promises To Stop Arming Kurds In Syria
The Associated Press reports that the announcement appeared to catch the U.S. State Department and Pentagon off-guard. We've got a real problem with them.

That's the question posed for the first episode of "Black Mirror" season 4 directed by Oscar victor Jodie Foster with a new trailer that debuted on Saturday. However, Sarah quickly goes missing, giving the mother a scare. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm - a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone - a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us. As we are left to guess, nothing good is about to happen as the words "the key to good parenting is control" appear onscreen. Yeah, I'm sure we're in for a pretty wild ride with this episode. (Looking at you, "San Junipero.") Of last season's six episodes, there was only one that ended with an outlook that wasn't so bleak, but at least we got that.

Anyone who's seen Black Mirror before will know what "completely safe" usually means in this show - something along the lines of "totally untested and highly dangerous" - and the chances of this turning out well would be zero.

Netflix has just dropped the first trailer for the next season ofBlack Mirror, and it's every teenager's nightmare. The trailer was followed a month later by stills from "Arkangel" and a Star Trek-themed episode titled "USS Callister". It's completely possible that series creator Charlie Brooker thought up some sort of chip created to make the daughter more docile, or even give her a shock when she wanders too far from her loving mom. Though they do finally find the child, the incident prompts her to bring her daughter to a facility for an experimental treatment.
