Podcast musical chairs continues, as Richard returns this week Steve steps out, but never fear -- unless of course you have an intense physical reaction to discussions on 3D, Blu-ray and analyst predictions.

Finally, we take a minute to see what new fall programming has stuck in our viewing rotation (not much.)
