Syndication

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it was a holiday weekend, but if you were a new release, it was a bad one. Hidden Figures defeated everyone, the Rebellion broke the half-billion mark, and Hollywood is hoping beyond hope that the return of Xander Cage in a fifteen year revival of xXx can put a stop to all of it. It's January, so we shall see.

 

In home entertainment, audiences are treated to a variety of films including Roger Corman's newest: Death Race 2050. Jack Reacher goes back (even though the title warned him not to) on digital, Rizzoli & Isles says farewell on TV, and the classics take Two For the Road. Denise shakes things up with a discussion of remakes that you never knew you wanted but are getting anyway, drawing this new edition of The Weekly Podioplex to a close on The Chronic Rift Network.
