On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we want to know why do audiences love an apocalypse so much? The Last of Us, Walking Dead, Station 11, there are so many TV shows and movies that take place in an apocalyptic scenario these days...but why? We discuss this phenomenon and why we are so in love with this concept, as well as how we think we would fare if it all came true. 

And that's not all, as AMC Theaters has unveiled a new pricing structure that feels guaranteed to piss off moviegoers who just fell back in love with going to theaters again. Plus review of Knock at the Cabin, recommendations, expanded universes, and more!
