Syndication

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the bad guys took a box office turkey as the Suicide Squad continues to dominate the box office. If swords and sandals, gunner runners, and fantasy adventurers can't defeat the Squad, do Don't Breathe, Mechanic: Resurrection, or Hands of Stone stand a chance? 

 

This week is a big one for television on the home screen as The Walking Dead, Legends of Tomorrow, Castle, Elementary, and more make their way to disc. Add in a disc debut for Winter's War, a man-cub on digital, and a bowl of news in the Quick Flicks for dessert, and you have a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.
