Monkeys Fighting Robots

Brand new television podcast, Telly Buddies, goes in-depth into lots of television topics, based off new shows and news stories. Episode 1 covers the S06 finale of The Walking Dead, and all the faults that came with it. We also discuss the role of Punisher in Daredevil’s second season, and Louis CK’s move from FX to his new web series, Horace & Pete. To go along with such light-hearted material, we kick off the conversation with deaths we found to be particularly moving.

FAIR WORD OF WARNING: The Telly Buddies Podcast contains spoilers for shows like The Walking Dead, Arrow, and House of Cards. We also discuss deaths from shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Breaking Bad, so while those shows have been out for a while, you’ll want to be wary if you’re hoping to keep those shows a surprise for yourself.
