In December 2017, Netflix released a handful of episodes of choose-your-own-adventure animated programs designed for children.

If you've ever wanted the power to decide how your favorite television show ends, you will soon have that chance.

Up to five million European Union accounts hit in Facebook breach
According to Facebook , the hackers exploited three bugs in this feature, using its weaknesses to breach the privacy of accounts. Second, they have reset the access tokens of the nearly 50 million accounts we know were affected to protect their security.

Interactive TV is slowly beginning to become feasible and more mainstream, as HBO released its own interactive show, Mosaic, that was directed by Steven Soderbergh and was later released as a standalone app.

At the tail-end of a year ago Netflix announced that it was planning to develop a choose-your-own adventure-style TV show for adults - following on from a successful foray into the same sort of programming aimed at kids. Using the feature in a high-profile show like Black Mirror shows that the streaming service is serious about exploring it as a storytelling option.

Guerry said Ford felt "it was her duty to bring this forward" despite the potential for being attacked for her accusation. Each of the men described "in some detail" their recollection of their encounter with Ms.

Pulling off a satisfying ending for a series, a season, or even a single television episode can be hard.

As if there weren't already enough twists in a typical Black Mirror episode, the anthology series' upcoming fifth season is rumored to include an interactive, Choose Your Own Adventure-style installment.

Minnesota would surely receive a first-round pick, too, but it would be late in the round and not all that attractive. One wild card that some folks in the media seem to suggest we should keep an eye on is the Washington Wizards.

Black Mirror is one of the most experimental and interesting shows on TV and it could be about to blow our minds in a whole new way. This is Black Mirror, after all, and it isn't known for its positive outlook on the future of humanity's relationship with technology. As Netflix expands around the world, it's looking for new ways to lure customers. Now we have our first news of what that will involve, because an upcoming episode of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror will let viewers choose what happens. By blending elements of video games with traditional television, the company could create a formula that can be applied to any number of series. It's certainly attention-grabbing, and I could see the concept working on an extremely meta-level with Black Mirror.
