‘Mr. Robot’ has really grown on me

Mr. Robot is one of those shows that everybody’s talking about. It’s being praised by practically every TV critic in the land, has amassed a huge legion of fans, and seems to have tapped into both our love of technology and our paranoia about the huge corporations who run that technology. Everybody seems to love this show, so why did it take me so long to get into it?

Everybody needs to stop complaining about Jon Snow spoilers

If you’ve been on Twitter and Facebook for even a couple weeks, you know that people post about movies and TV shows, and those posts sometimes include spoilers. If you truly believe that knowing what happens on a show will destroy your entire life, perhaps it’s best for you to avoid social media (and probably society in general) until you’ve seen the episode. And yes, this post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season 6.

Story and science make ‘The Martian’ compelling sci-fi

Great sci-fi films combine visual effects, plausible science, and engaging characters who feel like real people. It’s a difficult balancing act between explosions and action, math and engineering, and an engrossing emotional journey. This is why great sci-fi films are so few and far between, and why The Martian gives me hope that this kind of movie can exist in the effects-ridden landscape of current sci-fi and action movies.
