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!

Sean, Andrew, and Lynn give you a little taste of what's to come with this preview of the upcoming Hellraiser retrospective! Just in time for Halloween. Not as much of a treat as we meant to have ready for you, but enough to let you know what we're working on.

Sean, Andrew, and Lynn continue to explore the story devices people say they want to see in superhero movies and the attitudes that threaten to keep audiences from getting it. From Zack Snyder's casual dismissal of Marvel's successes when talking up his upcoming Batman/Superman film to M Night Shyamalan's prescient and subtle examination of the superhero legend in Unbreakable, there's a varied sensibility when it comes to these movies. But what works and what do people really want? And what happens when you actually give it to them? They also discuss other Shyamalan films like the Village and pontificate on the proper way to tell a story in general, but if you've listened to this show before, you should be used to that.

Sean, Andrew, and Lynn talk about the rise of Superheroes in the movies and the weird need to predict the end of superhero movies altogether or compare Marvel's successes with DC's planned cinematic universe.
