The Weekly Podioplex: November 1, 2016

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, November debuts with a repeat winner as Boo! A Madea Halloween fends off a tepid performance by Inferno. Robert Langdon's disappointing debut will likely result in a rapid decline as Marvel returns to the stage with Doctor Strange. Following on the doctor's heels are an animated comedy about Trolls and a war drama called Hacksaw Ridge.

In home entertainment, we boldy go with Star Trek Beyond, Bad Moms, and the Return of the Caped Crusaders. It's a Sausage Party on digital, and a smorgasbord of home entertainment including Librarirans, IT professionals, and time travelers. Wrap things up with Denise and the Quick Flicks, and you have a shiny new installment of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

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.
