For Thanksgiving, we present two Turkey Day-themed comedies.  First up, on “The Jack Benny Show,” Mary reads a poem she wrote just for 1939.  From 1939 to 1941, Thanksgiving was celebrated not on the fourth Thursday of the month, but the third.  Then Jack wonders what’s going on when the turkey he bought lays an egg as big as a cantaloupe.  “The Great Gildersleeve” was always filled with topical laughs.  As Thanksgiving approaches, Gildy hopes to get a coveted “B Ration” gas card, nephew Leroy has to perform in the school Thanksgiving play, and it becomes harder and harder to actually find a turkey.

On an all-new Double Digest edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office remains strange as the good doctor fends off aliens, angry offspring, and a mid-November horror flick. This week sees one brand of magic facing off against another as Doctor Strange defends his title against the first Harry Potter spinoff in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. And if that's not enough magic, Moana joins that fray in two weeks. Welcome to the November blockbuster season.

In home entertainment, a fish finds home in Finding Dory and Star Wars takes another chunk out of everyone's budgets. In the "One of These Things is Not Like the Other" Department, the Suicide Squad, Jason Bourne, and The Secret Life of Pets make their digital debuts. On television, we welcome the drama of Westeros, an animated Trek, and another entry from MST3K. Finally, two classics debut in HD as the Looney Tunes crew plays basketball and the Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller does what Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers do best.

Is that all? Of course not. What kind of bountiful feast for the ears would this be without Denise and the Quick Flicks? All of this in a double episode for the debut of the holiday season on The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
