Episode 48 – How Entertainment Influences Itself

Do you ever find yourself watching a movie, reading a book, or playing a game and thinking to yourself, “This has happened before”?  Of course, we all have?  But, this form of entertainment deja vu isn’t because you’ve decided to re-watch, re-read, or re-play.  Join us this week as we discuss the phenomenon of entertainment influencing itself, for better or for worse.  From classic literature to classless television, it seems there are no bounds.  Dust off that tome of Shakespeare, spike up that blow-out, and whatever you, don’t feed the Honey Boo Boo as you settle in for a certified original episode of Monkey in the Cage!

We all love an original, right?  Be it a movie, a TV show, a book or a game, there is nothing quite like the Real McCoy.  The OG.  The Numba One Stunna… or something…  But, what happens if an original is remade or rebooted?  What is it’s (probably) worse?  What if it’s (surprisingly) better?  Should it have even been done?  Join us this week as we tackle these hard-hitting, earth-shattering, humanity influencing questions while looking at the entertainment industry’s remake obsession.  Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, and hide those bootleg cable movie VHS’s, because it’s all about to get REMADE UP IN HERE, on this weeks new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
