'Black Mirror' Channels Some Inner 'Street Fighter' for Season 5

After tackling a Star Trek spinoff, Black Mirror looks to VR and fighting games next.

Last season, Netflix's Black Mirror, a show that's more interested in the darker side of our technological world, tackled Star Trek with the episode USS Callister. The episode went on to win four Emmys—But it doesn't seem like Black Mirroris done with nerd culture quite yet.

In the trailer for season 5, it appears virtual reality—and more specifically—gaming culture could be the show's next allegorical nightmare with a sequence that looks like a live-action version of Street Fighter (a series we very much love).

Also the trailer is filled with famous faces like Miley Cyrus and Anthony Mackie, and gives us a good look into the madness of the season's three episodes. Honestly, I just hope those robot dogs from "" don't show up.

Until then, give the choose-your-own-adventure Black Mirror: Bandersnatch a watch or three—after all, it's different every time.
