On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it's evident that pirates rule and lifeguards drool, even if it was a lackluster holiday performance for both of them. This week, Captain Jack and the babes and brawn of Baywatch contend with an Amazon princess. It's a DC Comics origin story that isn't for Superman, isn't for Batman, and isn't even for a man. Finally, the world has Wonder Woman.

On the home entertainment slate, studios air out some winter releases with The Shack, Before I Fall, A Cure for Wellness, and some major crimes and intrigue on TV. Denise ends on a high note with various popular properties coming to screens in the near future, putting the polish on another edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
