    The entire history of Black Mirror, as told by its stars

    Charlie Brooker said the idea for Black Mirror’s “Be Right Back” was sparked by two things: the first was when was he was trying to clear space on his phone (in the days when you had limited storage) and he came across a contact for a friend who had passed away. He found himself caught in a strange moment of sadness and guilt at having to delete the person’s number off his mobile phone – even though he would never need it again.

    The minds behind NBC’s new drama Rise are responding to accusations that they “straight-washed” their main character after comments made by the showrunner were misconstrued. The series, which follows a teacher who takes over his local struggling high school drama department, is very loosely inspired by Michael Sokolove’s book Drama High: The Incredible True Story of a Brilliant Teacher, a Struggling Town, and the Magic of Theater.

    What was puberty like for you? When I think back to my experience, I’m reminded of how cringe-worthy it was. I felt uncertain of everything: my relationships, my body, myself. Despite the fact that I had a generally open-minded, sex-positive family who taught me about the science of puberty, I felt utterly alone in my confusion and embarrassment.

    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.

    Peter Dinklage on Why It’s ‘the Perfect Time’ to End ‘Game of Thrones’

It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.” Dinklage plays fan-favorite character Tyrion Lannister in the HBO mega-hit. Over the course of the show’s run, Tyrion has gone from simple Lannister royalty, to the Hand of the King for the reviled Joffrey Baratheon, to a patricidal fugitive, and now stands...
