We've had about enough Google TV chat, and this week's podcast gets back to the fundamentals by kicking off with a quick look at the alleged death of big cable and pay TV. After that we bite into some ESPN 3D and Versus 3D news before celebrating one more series transitioning into high definition next year. Time Warner rolled out Look Back in a few more areas, so of course we had to mention that and our early experience with the FiOS RedZone iPad App. Wrapping things up is the Linksys Media Center Extender apocalypse that took place last weekend, The West Wing on HD VOD and our latest HD 101.
