There’s little we can say about Black Mirror series 4 that we didn’t say in our first review of their TrailerTown, but with the release of the season less than a month away and the recent release of teaser TrailerTowns for each episode, we couldn’t stop ourselves.

May 25th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Netflix just keeps the good stuff coming our way (we’ve already discussed Okja), and this new TrailerTown for the Jason Bateman-helmed OZARK show looks to keep this tradition going. Sure, you could say it looks like Breaking Bad, but is that really such a bad thing? Both Jason Bateman and Laura Linney look to be bringing a lot to the table, but we’ll let you be…
