Step right up boys and girls, step right up! Prepare to be astounded and amazed, excited and entertained, overwhelmed and occupied by the freakish sights that only your ears can behold! That’s right folks, were going uncaged this week, so there’s no rules, no order, and no stopping the freakshow geek show! Join us this week as we discuss a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a whole bunch of other stuff! Open up your pocket books, get in tune with your psychic side, and kiss the bearded lady good-bye as you settle in for 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.
Being a geek is awesome, plain and simple. Whether it’s rolling dice during a dungeon crawl late on a Saturday night or schooling your friends in cut-throat battles of Mario Kart 64, the time we spend on our geeky hobbies and with our even geekier friends is definitely time well spent. This week, we discuss the personal and social benefits of “geeking out” and the reasons we feel that being a geek among geeks is the best place in the world to be. So, turn on your consoles, zip up your cosplay costume and grab your gaming dice, because it’s about to get AWESOME!
Okay, admit it. You’re just as guilty as the rest of us. When it comes to the geeky things you know and love, there isn’t anyone out there that is going to change your mind on why it influences you or why it’s important. Even if that means a little “nerd rage” from time to time, or a lot if you happen to be Matt. This week we’re talking about the proverbial Dark Side of geekdom, that evil place where your passion for something geeky almost destroys it’s awesomeness because you’re too hung up on your own fanaticism. So, sit back and enjoy as the battle lines are drawn in this epic nerd rage debate!
