Syndication

On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office has the Biloxi Blues as the team of Broderick, Walken, and Miller bring stageplay to the silver screen. This week, the recruits contend with an irreverent poltergeist in the guise of Beetlejuice.

 

We're not saying it again. 

On the home entertainment front, five good titles come to your VHS player, including the adorably zany Princess Bride and the sci-fi stunner Innerspace. After that, Denise brings words of Phantoms in the West End, a new Oprah show, Aliens with Sigourney and ALF, and Tom Cruise.

Enjoy the journey, because it's showtime on the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
