In this episode Joe, Jessie, and Scott get together to talk about their experience seeing THE MARTIAN and how they think it stacks up against GRAVITY and INTERSTELLAR. Based on the best selling novel by Andy Weir, The Martian tells the story of astronaut Mark Watney who after being marooned on mars has to fight for his survival. The story is one of perseverance in the face of uncertainty, and the use of ingenuity to overcome obstacles.
