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 and Lynn discuss the King of Vampires and his literary origins. Beginning with the Summer of 1816 that also spawned Frankenstein, they examine Lord Byron's abandoned vampire novel that became Polidori's "The Vampyre", the penny dreadful sensation "Varney the Vampire", "Carmilla" and Bram Stoker's novel as a New World vs. Old World allegory. Just in time for Halloween.
