On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it was a battle between then aliens and the xenomorphs won. Barely. Now it's the battle of the aliens (both sets) and the pirates. Bring rum and that guy's leg, and watchout for facehuggers.

On the home entertainment slate, old man Logan, haunted houses, the Great Wall, and John Wick come home. So does an animated superhero who is friends with the Flash, Green Arrow, and the Legends. Disney also gets in on things with some ducks. Mighty ones. Denise takes us out with a few geeky articles and a whole lotta "yaaaaaaayyy" as we put the wraps on another edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
