    Episode 21: William Gibson’s Alien III

    Episode 21: William Gibson’s Alien III

    Devan, Michael, and Ryan wear their best cyberpunk cosplay and discuss William Gibson's Alien 3 script, the first of many failed attempts by multiple writers during the film's tumultuous production process.  The crew talk about what they liked in the script, areas where it fell short, and whether it would've worked if 20th Century greenlit it into a feature length film.  They also discuss how studio interference, budget concerns, and lack of faith in the project in general ultimately contributed to the demise of the Gibson's attempt.  We hope you enjoy this episode as we continue our 30th anniversary celebration of Alien 3.  Thank you so much, once again, for your continued support.  Stay frosty!

    Episode 20: Prometheus, Part I - ”The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it hurts.”

    David, Michael, Devan, and special guest Dave use the star maps from various archaeological cave drawings and travel to LV-223 to talk about and celebrate the 10th anniversary of the 2012 sort-of Alien prequel "Prometheus."  They discuss what they liked most about the film, what didn't work as well, the many cut and edited scenes that might have improved the film, and how their views of the film may have changed after 10 years.  They also talk a bit about how the 2017 sequel "Alien: Covenant" both succeeded and failed in following up on the narrative, characters, and themes contained in its predecessor.  This is a fun, vibrant discussion about a movie that, for better or worse, has left a lasting impression on many within the Alien fandom.  Once again, thank you so much for listening and supporting our show!  Stay frosty!
