Night Vale Live: San Francisco  
If listeners of Welcome to Night Vale who are all caught up on the podcasts haven't already, I highly recommend you check out the live show the cast did at SF's The Booksmith.

There are a couple of major events in the lives of Cecil and Carlos the Scientist. I was originally amused by Cecil's raging crush on Carlos that became a real relationship but this episode had me actually investing in their story. I like it when characters I've grown to like can grow and change without completely losing the thing that made them likable in the first place. Gold stars for the writers of Night Vale for developing the characters so nicely. And extra gold stars for actor, Cecil Baldwin. I can't believe this is still basically a one man show. Night Vale has so many characters and I sometimes completely forget we only know that because of one guy telling us.

Amidst all the truly, truly bizarre happenings in this episode (condos are coming, BEWARE!), at heart it's a very normal relationship story.
