Ellen Ripley: feminist icon. Ridley Scott: not so much.
Today’s episode covers the first four films of the Alien franchise–yes, even Resurrection, though none of us remembers it well. We’re going deep into the salt mines for our take on the formative series, including why we love xenomorphs and robots with Oedipal complexes. We also cover why we’re not so hot on male writers clinging to hard-edged 90s nostalgia and so-called “Strong Female Characters.” Nothing’s perfect, we guess.
As always, you can find us on Twitter! If you want to rate and review us on iTunes, that would be great as well. See the show notes below.
