On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Star Trek warps into number one on a profitable weekend, defeating the pets, the Ice Age, and scares in the dark. The Enterprise (or what's left of her) has star power, but so does super-agent Jason Bourne, who makes his return to theaters after a while off. Can Kirk defeat Bourne, or will the Enterprise crash and burn?
On the home entertainment front, The Boss and Hardcore Henry make their disc debuts, and the Joker takes a dark swing at the Caped Crusader as The Killing Joke comes to digital. We also get another movie marathon on the Satellite of Love, a new Criterion release, and a brief look at the month of August as we wrap up a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.

Home Entertainment for the week of July 26th, 2016
The Batcave Podcast is an Internet show that takes a look at each and every episode of the 60s Batman television series. Host John S. Drew celebrates the great and looks to see where the show went wrong as it slid into oblivion in its third and final season with a different guest host each week. In the end, John is attempting to justify his love for this series, not to the listener, but to himself. Join him on this long, strange trip.
