On The Weekly Podioplex, a sewer-dwelling clown was kicked to the curb by the Kingsmen. Both titles were clear winners this week, though time will tell if the Golden Circle will hold up to the legacy of the Secret Service. This week, both clown and Kingsman get a challenge from Tom Cruise: Drug Runner, a remake of Flatliners (mmmm, Bacon), a tale of domestic abuse, and a question of faith.

Home entertainment opens with another Transformers spectacle, a tale of sharks vs. oxygen, and the return of Spider-Man doing everything a spider can. Television ups the ante with some Shameless action, a little Longmire, a whole lot of Sleepy Hollow, a certain set of skills in Taken, and one of the most catchy, upbeat theme songs ever heard on The Greatest American Hero. Finish off the home entertainment slate with Flatliners and Space Camp, then cap off your podcasting journey with Denise and news of Han Solo, Overwatch tackling toxicity, Jordan Peele hunting Nazis, and more.

There you go. One brand new edition of The Weekly Podioplex. And it's all yours courtesy of The Chronic Rift Network.
