It's an overstuffed episode of Ka-Pow the Pop Cultured Podcast, as the arrival of fall has filled our days with dozens of new shows and returning favorites to sink our teeth into.  We sample several debuting pilots, including the rebooted "Magnum P.I.," the Jim Carrey dramedy "Kidding," Netflix's brain-bending "Maniac," the animated "Star Wars: Resistance" and much, much more.  Plus, we introduce a new segment where we get to know each other a little better by revealing our favorite Halloween costumes we've ever worn.

Quality drama on HBO's "Succession," checking out the fall pilots "Magnum P.I.," "Murphy Brown," "The Neighborhood," "Happy Together," "The Cool Kids," Jim Carrey's "Kidding" and USA's "The Purge," season four of "Better Call Saul" wraps up, the finale of the quirky "Lodge 49," a new speedster and a new big bad on "The Flash," the return of "The Goldbergs" and "This is Us" and the ninth season of "The Walking Dead" ups the quality but sheds viewers.
