September 5, 2017

On The Weekly Podioplex, we arrive in a post-Dragon Con world to find disappointment. The summer is over, the box office is the slowest it has been in seventeen years, and none of the newcomers could break the top ten. As autumn rolls in, it brings comedies about aging women and horror tales about demonic clowns. Can either jumpstart flagging sales, or have we already drifted into the storm drain to float away?

Home entertainment brings real life tales, from Morgan Leavey to Tupac Shakur, as well as television adventures from the Scarlet Speedster to demon-hunters in Impalas. After closing that chapter with Blade Runner, Denise offers up news of from the DC universe (good or bad, you choose) as well as heartwarming news about Marvel helping autistic artists. With that, we turn out the lights on summer and welcome cooler temperatures, falling leaves, and this new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
