Can life lessons we learn from movies prepare us for the end of civilization? Is Harry Potter the new Star Wars? Has modern science fiction lost its way? Are housewives ruining American television? Explore these questions and many others with Sean Gilbert, Brooks Robinson and Greg Starks in TV Ate My Dinner, the podcast that brings you the finest in opiniontainment when it comes to movies, TV and media issues. It could also mean the difference between living and dying if you ever find yourself staring down the business end of a zombie bite, so this is one show you can't afford to miss!

While doing end of the year cleaning we found this never before released episode of TVAMD. It's a follow-up to Sean, Lynn and Gary's coverage of Friday the 13th and Cabin in the Woods that got lost in the shuffle during the Disney Star Wars hullaballoo. In this brief addendum they discuss Dr. Who, Cabin in the Woods, and the (then) impending apocalypse.

Enjoy one last TVAMD in 2012 and we'll see you again next year!

There are actually those who don't know VRON. For those I present this flashback of her origin (which I myself had to poke around a bit to find). This is me and Brooks in our first encounter with my robot companion.

Sean, Greg, Brooks and Andrew conclude their discussion of the new Disney Star Wars. With Disney in possession of Star Wars and Marvel, could we see the return of the Hoojibs? Or Jaxxon? Could there be a Muppet Star Wars in our future? There's no end to the things we can make up on this subject.

THE FOLLOWING IS BASED ON A TRUE STORY... Did I ever tell you about the time I died? Yeah, probably not. That's a good setup for a story though, right? I have told this story before. For the sake of those involved I omitted some of the more bizarre elements, but as the years have gone by I have come to realize that the full details must be made known. What if the unexplained incident that occurred that St. Patrick's Day in downtown Savannah were to be repeated elsewhere? It's irresponsible to withhold what little I know of it, especially in light of the fact that no one else seems to remember. This is the story of how all Hell broke loose one night in Savannah, how the end of the world was very nearly the result of it, and how I was put in a position to stop it just by deciding to stay home.

In this first excerpt, I introduce the story and talk about my ill-fated bid for President. No zombies yet, but they're coming.

Contains explicit language.

Sean, Greg, Brooks and Andrew return to continue their discussion of the Disney Star Wars purchase. What could this mean for Indiana Jones? Could an Indy reboot be in our future? And what a Star Wars theme park? Could EPCOT become Star Wars Land? And what's up with Netflix? Why is everything always on Very Long Wait now?

If you ever wondered what it would take to bring Brooks out of retirement, this is it. Sean, Brooks, Greg and Andrew convene for an emergency session of TVAMD to talk about the Earth-shattering announcement that Disney purchased Star Wars. What does it mean? Who would direct Episode VII? How do we get Nathan Fillion in it? Part 1 just barely scratches the surface, folks...
