Does that have you in an okay mood? Good, because the rest of this is going to be upsetting.
In this episode, we’re talking about Alien3, so prepare yourselves for that. If you’ve never seen Alien3, it’s kinda-super-not-fun. We get into the irresponsibility of some of the more EGREGIOUS and UNNECESSARY choices regarding the characters in the construction of this script, the evolution on the story in terms of Ripley’s arc from Alien to present, and examine the development hell this movie slogged through before finally sprinting (using a distractingly obvious bluescreen technique) into theaters. All this and more on the latest episode of A Matter of Taste.

We can’t have Michael Biehn for reasons I guess, and Carrie Henn has aged out of the role, so we can’t have these two characters
Sigourney Weaver has always wanted Ripley to die (refer back to Aliens commentary)
