    175 // David‘s Lab | A Roundtable Discussion Part Two (Exquisite Corpse - Dissecting Alien: Covenant Part Three)

    We’re back with another roundtable! Alien: Covenant presents a lot to talk about, and on this wide-ranging installment we tackle some of the more problematic aspects of the film. What do we wrestle with? Where does Covenant fall flat? Why is it so hard to stop talking about this freaking movie?!


    Join Jaime, Patrick, Christian, Andie, Maj, and special guest Matt John as they venture further into David's creepy basement.

    174 // David‘s Lab | A Roundtable Discussion Part One (Exquisite Corpse - Dissecting Alien: Covenant Part Two)

    There's no beating around the bush: Alien: Covenant is, at its heart, a divisive film in fandom. So how do we make sense of it? Do we throw it all out and hope for a more unifying film next time? It's never that simple. While there is a lot that is controversial about Alien: Covenant, there is a lot that is profound as well.


    In this roundtable discussion, Jaime, Patrick, Christian, Andie, Perry, and Maj jump into the deep end to discuss a film that continues to be a flashpoint in fandom. While not the success the studio had hoped for—or the rallying point fans were desperate to receive—Covenant is worthy of exploration. We hope you enjoy.

    173 // Where It All Began (Exquisite Corpse - Dissecting Alien: Covenant Part One)

    173 // Where It All Began (Exquisite Corpse - Dissecting Alien: Covenant Part One)

    When Alien: Covenant was released in theaters back in 2017, it was nothing short of explosive. EVERYONE had an opinion about it. And for a lot of us in Alien fandom, Covenant represents a painful time in our community.


    But why? What is it about this movie that inspires such intense reactions, good and bad?


    Join Jaime and Patrick as they revisit the very first on-air discussion they ever had (way back in Episode 59). How does Alien: Covenant sit now, four years after its release? What themes have stood the test of time; what has soured with age? Where do we go from here? How did we get here in the first place?


    This is the first episode of a full, extended series that many of you have been asking for. We're calling it "Exquisite Corpse - Dissecting Alien: Covenant." And we can't wait to take this journey with you.

    170 // Interviewing Scott Rogers, Designer of Alien: Fate of the Nostromo

    170 // Interviewing Scott Rogers, Designer of Alien: Fate of the Nostromo

    As Alien fans, we've got a lot of ways to engage with the stories we love. We can watch the films, read the comics, play with the action figures, sew our cosplay outfits, explore the decks of the Sevastopol ... and sometimes, when we're lucky, we get something that allows us to engage with these stories in collaboration with others.


    That's just what Scott Rogers, the legendary game designer behind Ravensburger's new Alien: Fate of the Nostromo, had in mind as he and his team brought this new tabletop experience to life.


    Join Jaime and Patrick as they talk with Scott about all sorts of things: his life-long love for Alien, the inner mechanics of game design, and so much more.


    And be sure to pick up a copy of Alien: Fate of the Nostromo, on sale now wherever games are sold!
