By: Brier Stucky Mac Miller’s first two commercial albums were in many ways polar opposites of each other, with a very obvious contrast between the fun, party anthems of 2011’s Blue Slide Park and the dark, moody songs on his 2013 effort Watching Movies With the Sound Off.

I have not read the original Andy Weir novel and the trailers made me think this was going to be another space survival thriller à la Gravity. I will say it … Continue reading Review: The Martian
By Austin Keller Don’t get me wrong, I am an avid fan of Fox’s first season of The Following. The show brought a new spin to the typical procedural crime drama; dedicating half, if not most of the show developing the criminal characters and making them indispensable to a week-by-week plot.

From the explosive pilot to the cliffhanger finale, the first season was a fantastic experience out of the gate. However, for Season 2, showrunners Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg need to up the ante to keep viewers on their toes and ensure a third season.
