We do talk about syndication and what it takes to make it work as well as complaints about our local cable cos. Finally we end with some solid Blu-ray vs HD DVD talk where Matt and Ben wager on the price of the new HD DVD add on. Matt also lets us in on some details of the "Blu-ray drive not playing movies" fiasco. If you'd rather not hear anything this week about the high-def format war, you'll want to pay attention around the 37-minute mark.
