March 20, 2018

On this week's Double Digest edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Black Panther is still fighting strong as it wins a fifth straight week, joining ranks with Avatar and The Sixth Sense. This week's competition will attempt to cancel the apocalypse and restart the Jaeger program with Pacific Rim Uprising.

On the home entertainment front, the sluggers comes home with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle this week and Star Wars: The Last Jedi next week. Television gives audiences Archer, Legion, and Mister Rogers, and retro goes crazy with The 'Burbs and Scanners on Blu-Ray.

Denise brings the news from the world wide web to your ears with leprechauns, Amazon's deep pocketses, James Bond #25, and stop motion dreams.

Enjoy the journey, because it's showtime on the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
