CBS’s Black Box -Love it or HATE IT, It’s Been Canceled!

Friday, September 5th, 2014

CBS’s Black Box -Love it or HATE IT, it’s been canceled! I mean hate it with a passion that would make water boil, for it’s blatant stereotypical “bipolar disorder” or the fact that it just had a predictable storyline with periodical drama-less drama. Not just the over the top “sex-crazed bipolar ~ drug seeking neurologist” -

That paints a great picture of what ALL BIPOLAR people are like…er,ah excuse me, I  mean to say what all people “WHO LIVE WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER” are like… PEOPLE FIRST terms!  If we are not shooting and on a killing spree and sexing every one up – Thank you mass-media and the very small percentage of people with (normally undiagnosed or in denial) mental illness that do fit this blatant media stereotype.  You mess it up for the rest of us.  STOP STIGMA.

In a recent BP HOPE article titled “Are we ready for our close-up,” looked at t.v. shows like Homeland and Black Box:

““Media” in these terms typically includes news outlets. Yet fictional TV and movie characters who are presented as dangerous because of a mental illness, or as figures of ridicule (as on some children’s programs), obviously reinforce harmful stereotypes and reduce empathy. “

If you don’t watch t.v. the ABC show titled “Black Box,” is about an awesomely smart female neuroscientist with bipolar…the hypersexuality stereotype was the first card they tossed at viewers in the first or second episode…along with drug addiction, mania, self- medicating, rejecting-then accepting -then re-jecticting help… I think it was too much. It was very done in a tasteless way.  I never watched more than 3 full shows and just panned the reviews from others willing to still sit through it…but looks like not many were willing.

On August 7, 2014, ABC announced series Black Box will not be returning for a second season Entertainment Weekly reports.  Here is how the E-Weekly reported it:
