Episode 29 – Movie Meltdown

- This week we take a look at arguably the definitive horror/sci fi film – Alien. The usual gang is joined by our friend Rod as we recount some of our own childhood memories of this scarring classic. We discuss the skill with which Ridley Scott approached the movie, our feelings on the string of sequels, and Rod talks about getting a chance to interview the artist, genius and all-around strange guy – H.R. Giger.

- Plus we feature part one of our exclusive interview with Alien’s Lambert – Miss Veronica Cartwright.  

- And somewhere during dinner these topics explode from the our chests… Time Crimes, Harve Presnell, those fun cat scares, cutting all ties with humanity, Gopher from The Love Boat, a triangle-shaped space ship, running from the paparazzi, Fred Travalena, Yaphet Kotto is a bad-ass, a Sith rock star, the explosive world premiere of Demolition Man, Public Enemies, the technical aspects of View Master, Jan Rubes, being married for 70 years, the missing cocoon scene, no more fettucini for me, the best Robin Hood ever, The Monster Squad TV series, Ice Age 3, Samuel L.
