TVAMD Episode 183: The Greedo Effect!

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'...
