In "The City Dark," filmmaker Ian Cheney—who grew up in a small Maine town—ponders light pollution, a phenomenon foreign to him until he moved to New York City. To learn what the consequences of diminished darkness might be, he talks with experts, including astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. What he discovers: possible health implications for humans; and serious issues for such wildlife as sea turtles. Yet, as criminologist Jon Shane points out, there is some good: less crime in well-lit areas.

"Guilty Pleasures" examines the popularity of romance novels through the stories of three fans, an author and a male model whose face graces the covers of many books.

Shumita, an Indian woman whose husband left her, recognizes the books' Utopian take on love but enjoys them, anyway. And British author Gill Sanderson, surprisingly, turns out to be a male pensioner who resides in a trailer park.
