Swords, Sandals, Zombies and Star Wars! These are all up for discussion on this week's Hollywood Outsider Podcast. Swords and Sandals films, are they still relevant? What is it about this genre that has lasted so long? We also discuss the one teaser to rule the internet - Star Wars: The Force Awakens! Does it really show us anything new? What is up with that lightsaber? Is that droid just a soccer ball? After our normal episode, we also discuss the Mid-Season Finale of The Walking Dead, so stick around.
