Syndication

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Volume Two takes Round Two as the Guardians of the Galaxy win the weekend once again. Not even raunchy comedy or King Arthur himself could stop them. This week, it's aliens versus aliens as the xenomorphs return with Alien: Covenant. If chestbusters aren't quite your style, there's some comedy and romance as well.

 

The home entertainment slate is meatier than last week, offering Xander Cage's return, the final chapter of Resident Evil, Logan, chidren from Mars, and gods in shacks. The Fresh Prince rings rhythm (and the Carlton) to television, and Bruce Lee returns to our retro blu-ray slate with the Dragon beating on gangsters. Denise takes a few minutes to talk Hellboy, The Strain, Sleepy Hollow, and iZombie, and brings us to the end of another edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

The Flopcast
Flopcast hosts Kevin and Kornflake met while working on the assembly line at a rubber chicken factory in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. Together, they’re bringing you The Flopcast, live from Chickentown. They are quite obsessed with both coffee and cartoons, as well as comedy music, and various other silly and geeky pursuits. And rubber chickens. And yaks.
