Episode 93 – San Diego Comic-Con 2013

SDCC 2013

Another year, another pilgrimage to Geek Mecca.  San Diego Comic-Con came, saw, and conquered just like it does every year, and while none of us here at To-Ag studios were actually able to secure a pass to the convention floor (believe us, it’s difficult, frustrating, and expensive), we still did our best to be present and soak up the geeky goodness we could.  Join us this week as we discuss our experiences and some awesome geek news to come out of SDCC 2013!  Shine up your cutlass, practice playing Rock Band, and drink some of whatever Wayne Brady’s having as you get ready for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Episode 74 – TV Character Deaths

Lori Grimes Death Demotivator

It seems like not that long ago, the characters on our favorite TV shows were untouchable.  Sure, most have been far from infallible, some not even remotely likable, but they definitely seemed to be somewhat immortal.  Then, one day, writers go this great idea that killing important characters in dramatic fashion wasn’t just good entertainment, but good story-telling, so the fans could cray all they wanted, because, you know… ratings!  Join us this week as we discuss some (but definitely not all) of the TV show character deaths that have made a lasting impact on us, the viewers.  Grab you box of tissues, play some sad background music, and maybe even get some confetti poppers ready as we talk TV character deaths on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
