What would happen to a black hole if the graviton had a mass?  In this talk I will review the status of black hole solutions for theories in which the gravitational force is mediated by a massive spin-2 particle.  I will present the arguments that such black holes must necessarily be time-dependent and I will discuss the implications for black hole mechanics and for observations.
