It hasn’t been long since Sabrina Carpenter released her first album, Eyes Wide Open. In fact, it’s only been about a year and a half, but a lot has changed since then. The Girl Meets World actress quickly fine tuned her sound into something much more accessible overnight, and with her new material, she’s solidifying her place in the pop world with ease.
With her newly released song, “Thumbs,” Carpenter has a swagger to her music that was absent from Eyes Wide Open. While the first record took more of a pop rock approach, her new music is taking a page out of the catchy pop-r&B book, similarly to what Bridgit Mendler and Hailee Steinfeld have done with their new material, too. “Thumbs” is taken off Carpenter’s upcoming album, EVOLution, out this Friday, and it’s one of the best offerings we’ve got to hear from it yet. »

In the eighth episode of Guilt, "Eyes Wide Open," Grace has some gaps in her memory from the night of Molly's murder, so Stan brings in a psychiatrist to help her recover that missing time. Meanwhile, unaware that Prince Theo has been blackmailing Bruno to cover his tracks, Natalie goes to Bruno for help in proving that Theo killed Molly.

David’s Quick Take for the tl;dr Media Consumer:
My quick take on 2001: A Space Odyssey is that, after carefully rewatching the film and reading a fair amount about it over this past week or so, I arrived at the conclusion that it’s my favorite movie of all that have ever been made. I have said the same thing in the past, but that was many years ago, long before I had become familiar with so many classics of world cinema and Hollywood’s past that preceded my birth. My deep immersion over the past decade into a self-directed study of film history led me to temporarily suspend judgment on so momentous a question as what I consider to be “the greatest film ever made,” but now I’m pretty comfortable with saying that it’s this one, without any doubt on my part. That’s subjectively speaking, »
