EPISODE 49: Loved Ones On Fire (Alien: Covenant)

“I think that believes how in depth you are.”

–Kevin (tired and still on East Coast time)

It’s a sequel to Prometheus.  It’s also a prequel to Alien.  Oh, and it’s a prequel to Alien Vs. Predator.  Wait.  No.  It’s a prequel to Alien Vs. Predator:  Requiem.  So, that makes it a sequel to Predators also.

Well, ALIEN: COVENANT already has a lot of dings in its armor.  Divorced from all that continuity mess, how does this Ridley Scott movie stand up on its own merit?  Come and listen as George and a very tired, jet-lagged Kevin discuss it the movie that this could have been and perhaps should have been.
