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 Andrew reflect on the year in TV, comparing the plot and character development of the latest season of The Walking Dead to more successful shows like Game of Thrones and the short-lived Firefly. How did Firefly manage to show so much of the characters and story in such a short amount of time, when other shows never seem to understand where the story should be headed? And does it all trace back to the Greedo Effect? Did Lucas inadvertently create a generation of hack writers and hardcore heroes by stripping that one scene in Star Wars of its moral ambiguities?

Plus, Andrew watches Downton Abey. Just sayin'...
