3 Shows Normalizing Black Mental Health (and Doing It Well)
As a mental health advocate, suicide survivor and entertainment enthusiast, it brings me great joy to see the direction that black Hollywood is moving in to normalize the mental health conversation. Here are three shows doing a stellar job at pushing the conversation forward:
With six half-hour episodes in its first season, "Nailed It!" is deliciously bingeable. Here's what you can expect.
"Nailed It!" pits amateur bakers against one another — but there's a twist.
Conventionally, reality cooking competitions like "" or " " feature amateurs who perform at, or even above, the level professionals do. "Nailed It!" abandons this formula to celebrate imperfection. In each episode, three home bakers try their best to recreate elaborate cakes, treats, and more. The one who gets the closest wins $10,000.
But unlike other shows, no one on "Nailed It!" really ever gets that close — and that's the entire point. Instead of making it seem like anyone, the viewer included, can expect professional results at home, the show highlights just how complicated Pinterest recipes usually are. Because for most us, these baking "fails" are the best we can do, and that's impressive enough.

Here are a few standout creations from the show.
While this contestant didn't have time to cool her cakes down before glazing them, Torres complimented her fondant flowers.
This contestant created a bubbling volcano cake that successfully "erupted."
The judges congratulated this contestant for completing her cake in a short period of time.
It's hard not to love a show where everyone's an underdog.
Imperfect creations aside, "Nailed It!" also entertains when it comes to commentary. The show is hosted by comedian Nicole Byer, iconic chocolatier Jacques Torres, and a guest judge — and they all often say exactly what you're thinking.
When contestants were asked to recreate a Rapunzel cake, for example, Byer confessed, "I don't mean to laugh, but your princess is terrifying. [...] And I don't think anybody is coming to rescue her."

But the judges also share useful tips about baking, both for the contestants and for viewers at home, along with words of encouragement. "I want to give you credit for having courage and guts to do this," celebrated cake designer Sylvia Weinstock tells a contestant in the very first episode. "Because it's something you've never done before and I think that is remarkable."

Why “Netflix and chill” could actually be killing your sex life .
New research makes the case for a binge-watching curfew.So much for Netflix and chill—researcher sat Lancaster University in the UK found that streaming services are now actually getting in the way of people's sex lives. High time for streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix was between 8 and 10 p.m. not that long ago, but now, it's getting later: between 10 and 11 p.m. In other words, more people are streaming shows before drifting off to sleep instead of, well, having sex.

I used to think I didn’t like asparagus, but it turned out to be—as these aversions often are—a textural problem. Their stalks would remain fibrous and tough even as half the stalk and the tips turned to mush. My mind was changed a few years ago when some restaurant dish I ordered came […]
