In this episode Mike Suderman returns to talk about the Alien Quadrilogy; the first 4 movies in the Alien franchise. We talk about the amazing world building of Ridley Scott’s Alien, the fantastic sequel Aliens, and the sad fall from grace Alien3 and  Alien: Resurrection.  You also can’t talk about the films without discussing the evolution of Ripley, the world around her, and the alien itself.
