'Alien: Covenant' and Ridley Scott's Late-Career Sci-fi Binge

Ridley Scott is 79 years old, and if the rumors are to be believed, he's going to spend most of his remaining days making Alien movies. For fans of Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, this news likely elicits cheers of joy. For those of us at In Reel Deep...not so much.

On the latest episode of the In Reel Deep Podcast, Steve welcomes special guest Conor O'Shea to talk about all things Alien. Conor can find something to like about even Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection; how did Alien: Covenant sit with him? And does Scott's insistence on fleshing out the Alien backstory with philosophical musings about gods and creation connect at all to the nuances of the original four movies? We take great pains to answer all the questions we can, because Ridley sure isn't answering them for us.
