John Mulaney

Tina Fey. Eddie Murphy. Will Ferrell. Amy Poehler. These are just a few of the comedians who became household names through their tenure on "Saturday Night Live." "SNL" has been a catalyst for many comedy careers with actors taking their skills from the live skit show to television, movies and Broadway. But behind the famous faces are the writers backstage, crafting the jokes that create stars. Too often, they are unacknowledged and doomed to a nameless career in comedy. John Mulaney is here to change that.

Wyatt Cenac in "Problem Areas"

It is less a comedian trying to convince you with their side of the argument and more your educated, left-leaning friend discussing the world’s problems with you over coffee.

The Big House

This may seem like an obvious answer to the question “What is one thing you have to do before graduating from Michigan?” but hear me out. Going to a football game doesn’t mean spend hours tailgating and then nap until dinner. It doesn’t mean go for the first quarter and then leave because it’s too hot/cold/windy/loud. It doesn’t mean staying until the fourth quarter but bouncing five minutes early because Michigan is playing like a PAL football team. When I say before graduation you have to go to a football game, I mean really go to a football game.

Frita Batidos

The first time I came to Ann Arbor, I was a junior in high school, exhausted from a flight that had been delayed for three hours. The last thing I wanted to was be outside in the cold Michigan air, but my father insisted that we hit the streets and explore this new city. That’s when we came upon Frita Batidos.

Before the food even hits the table, Frita Batidos stands out. With it’s glowing white brick and glass exterior, it shines through the brown aesthetic of the storefronts surrounding it. Immediately, you’re intrigued by the place. And then, the food comes out.

Roseanne in "Roseanne"

As nice as it would be to separate the politics of the show from its ability to entertain, that is just not possible.

Zach Braff in "Alex, Inc."

The concept may sound very niche and millennial, perhaps even a little bit boring, but this is Zach Braff we’re talking about.

"The Mechanism" on Netflix

While perhaps entertaining, there are dangerous undertones to the thread of series and movies that utilize the stereotype that Latin America is nothing more than a crime-infested drug hub.

Die, "American Idol"!

While most of America has changed in the past 16 years, ‘American Idol’ has stayed consistent.

"Flint Town"

The once-vibrant city is crumbling, and the documentary does not sugarcoat that.
