4. M.F.A. in studio art student exhibition
The journey to an M.F.A. from MICA ends with this exhibition for eight students. Check out the display at the Fox Building's Decker and Meyerhoff galleries, as well as the Bunting Center's Pinkard Gallery, to see how they were able to dissect contemporary art. Opens Tuesday. AUBREY FORNWALT, B
5. 'The Last Airbender'
I've been marathon-watching the Nickelodeon cartoon for a few weeks to prepare for this hopefully epic big-screen adaptation. The visuals look amazing, and the styling of Aang's glowing arrow almost makes me want one on my forehead. Master the elements this Thursday. TIM WONG, B
I have no idea what this show, featuring comedian Louie C.K., is about. But I saw Ricky Gervais in a commercial and, really, that's all I need to know. Let's face it — I'm an easy sell. Premieres 11 p.m. Tuesday on FX. MARISSA GALLO, B
