The Weekly Podioplex: May 3, 2016

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Mowgli found a turkey in the box office jungle as all of the newcomers fell short. But this is where The Jungle Book's reign ends as #TeamIronMan and #TeamCap clash in the long awaited Captain America: Civil War. While Marvel fans strap on their armor, Airwolf, the super helicopter of the 1980s, comes home to roost in a complete series set. Add in another round of winter wares in home entertainment and you have a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.
