Season 12, Episode 1 The Parking Lot Movie

First Aired: October 19, 2010

Season 12 opens with new host America Ferrera introducing Meghan Eckman's quirky and acclaimed "Parking Lot Movie," which focuses on the world of parking-lot attendants at one Charlottesville, Va., parking lot. The attendants are a mix of University of Virginia undergraduate and grad students, musicians, philosophers and assorted oddballs, and the subjects they broach include anger, capitalism, class struggle, drunkenness, entitlement, the service sector and spiritual awareness.
