Spend the long weekend with The Hodgepodge Podcast! In Episode 145, Doug and Dirty A kvetch about Ridley Scott’s second Alien prequel, Alien: Covenant. Is it better than Prometheus? Does it get us any closer to the original film? Also, they talk a little about the other films in the Alien series and discuss some recent movie news. MAJOR SPOILERS for Alien: Covenant are discussed, so be warned!
Director Ridley Scott launched the Alien franchise back in 1979 and then returned in 2012 to tell the back story with Prometheus. That film divided the fan base and Scott is back again to continue the story he began in Prometheus with Alien: Covenant. Does this latest film get the franchise back on track or make an even bigger mess?
