    YouTube Won’t Ban Logan Paul From The Service, Says CEO Susan Wojcicki

    YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki says she isn’t going to kick controversial online star Logan Paul off the platform. Speaking at the Code Media conference in Huntington Beach, CA today, she said Paul would stay for now because he didn’t violate any specific policies when he posted a video of a person who committed suicide. YouTube responded to the outrage by temporarily suspending advertising on Paul’s account, but has not permanently banned him.

    George Clooney’s Pre-Fame TV Show ’Sunset Beat’ Is So Bad It’s Great

    Everyone has to start somewhere. The best surgeon in the world was once a frightened first-year resident. The best lawyer in the world spent a few summers getting coffee and making copies. This is especially evident with actors, because even their earliest roles leave a footprint. We saw Jason Alexander in a McDonald’s commercial and Leonardo DiCaprio in Growing Pains before they made it big, to name two. There are plenty of other examples. It’s a fun YouTube rabbit hole to tumble down.

    Altered Carbon: has cyberpunk discovered life beyond Blade Runner?

    The new Netflix adaptation has won fans for its future shocks, but like much dystopian sci-fi it struggles to get away from the shadow of Ridley Scott’s masterpiece. Imagine a Black Mirror future. San Francisco, say, in the 24th century: a depraved new world, but one stacked precariously on the old. A flying cop car knifes through a benighted cityscape glinting with gaudy neon enticements. Far below, a multicultural throng jostles past exotic bazaars and hologram-enhanced fleshpots. In a darkened refuge, an investigator scrolls through footage vital to his big case, verbally instructing a computer to freeze and enhance where required.

    Not only is Doctor Who's new series serving up a new showrunner, a female Doctor and a longer premiere, but now it's been revealed the show is getting a whole new visual effects team too. By now, everyone has seen Jodie Whittaker's first scenes as the Thirteenth Doctor, but it seems that regeneration scene marked the swan song of the show's visual effects team as well as its lead Peter Capaldi in the 2017 Christmas special.

    Producer Jill Messick Dead of Suicide at 50; Family Blames Rose McGowan-Harvey Weinstein Fight

    Veteran studio executive and producer Jill Messick, the ex-manager of Rose McGowan who found herself caught in the fight between McGowan and Harvey Weinstein, has committed suicide. She was 50. Messick’s family said in a statement she was “broken” by seeing her name in the news surrounding McGowan’s accusation that Weinstein raped her. Last month, Weinstein’s team included a quote from her from last year that supported Weinstein’s argument that his involvement with McGowan was consensual.

    He’s no ‘goofy white guy’: Black Panther’s Martin Freeman explains what makes his character tick

Especially if it’s in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Well, you need those secondary characters,” Freeman says sliding onto a couch in a Beverly Hills hotel. “Someone’s got to do them.”

    Every episode of Syfy’s The Magicians feels like a brand-new TV show. That’s great.

    If there’s one thing that unites all of my favorite television shows — and I mean favorite shows, the ones I will go to the mat for every time — it’s a sense of playfulness. My definition of playfulness might differ from yours. I would, for instance, define The Wire — a dead serious show, but one that never tired of finding new angles and perspectives on its stories (or, indeed, finding the humor in any given situation) — as fundamentally playful.

    Justin Timberlake Defies The Critics After Super Bowl Halftime ‘Disaster’

    The critics seem to have it out for Justin Timberlake, no matter how hard he tries. It’s safe to say that whether deserved or not, the rollout for his album Man of the Woods has been somewhat of a disaster. First, there is the album itself, which has earned, for the most part, poor reviews. Pitchfork was the harshest.

    In every Star Wars film destiny is a central theme, and The Last Jedi is no exception. The main characters – including Kylo Ren, Rey, and Luke Skywalker – are explicitly portrayed as possessing a fixed destiny in that their futures are preordained by a mysterious energy field that governs the entire universe: the Force. This same energy is also presented as determining the outcome of the struggle between the warring sides in which the main characters play their part: the Resistance and the First Order.

The latest offering from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is undeniably, unapologetically African as it centres itself around #blackexcellence, taking the popular hashtag straight from social media to the big screen.

    Deep Space Nine Is TV’s Most Revolutionary Depiction of Black Fatherhood

    The arc of American history is undergirded by a continuous, pointed degradation of the black family. The crux of this is the pervasive mythology surrounding the “missing black father.” At his feet has been laid the blame for poverty, mass incarceration, police brutality, and any number of ills, rather than the real culprit — the systemic, institutionalized racism that defines so much of American life. Despite statistics and studies that contradict this mythology, this archetype continues to cast a shadow on the black community.

While we wait for Season Two, here are some books that should sate the true crime or left-field murder mystery fans in all of us.

The more than three-and-a half-hour- long CBS show also had an audio book audition cameo by Hillary Clinton (see below), a use or two of the censor button, a lot of U2 and Sting, a powerful Time’s Up speech by Janelle Monáe and an equally powerful performance by Kesha and a chorus of supporters.
