This week on the io9 show, we look at the fall's television offerings. Will Arrow be the show you're going to love, or love to make fun of? Why isn't the beast more beastly in Beauty and the Beast? And has Revolution failed to turn your crank? Plus, Esther teaches us a fun, easy experiment that you can do during the commercial breaks.
