Is this the best summer or what!?! We’ve got superheros, conventions, and even better, GIANT F***ING ROBOTS FIGHTING GIANT F***ING MONSTERS!!! That’s right geeks and geekettes, this week we’re talking awesome! Join us as we discuss the good, the better, and the best of Guillermo Del Toro’s latest tour de force, Pacific Rim! We ain’t got no time or room for haters, so initiate your neural handshakes, touch up those Kaiju tattoos, and get ready to cancel the apocalypse as you listen to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
In the time that we here at To-Ag Studios have been recording, we’ve taken our fair share of shots to the chin, as individuals and as a group. This week, not only did we take that shot again, it was followed by a shin-kick to the groin and a wet-willy to boot. Join us this week as we take an errant trip down the rabbit hole resulting in a questionable experience with Thac0: The Movie. Take inventory of your dice, be sure to steam-clean your gaming cloak, and whatever you do… don’t hassle Neil Gaiman as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
So, way, way, WAY back in Episode 8, we here at To-Ag Studios talked Heroes and Villains. Seeing as the Monkeys still had their podcasting training wheels on, we approached two very broad and interesting topics with the reckless abandon of Hulk and Wolverine on a bender. So now, 68 weeks later, we have reconvened our Monkey council in order to once again discuss the hero figure and why we love them. Draw down your cowls, make some therapy appointments, and get your butt out of retirement as were headed for round 2 to discuss Heroes (NOT the show) on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
We all know that feeling. It starts with the previews and the teasers during re-runs. That new show, with those actors you like, is about to come to that network you watch. You can’t wait to tune in, and when you do, it’s one of the greatest things you’ve ever seen. You’re vested in the story, the characters, everything. Nothing can possibly get better than this, IT’S AMAZ… WHAT!?! CANCELLED!?!?! Join us this week as we reflect and mourn on some of our favorite TV shows that were sent to an early grave by the TV and network execs. Don’t get too cozy, have a plan B lined up for that time slot, and whatever you do don’t let FOX premiere your as we talk cancelled TV shows on a new episode of Monkey in the Cage.
