97 // Roundtable: The Myth and the Magic of Aliens (40 Miles of Bad Road: Part 4)
This sprawling roundtable brings the whole on-air gang together—JM, Patrick, Clara, Shaun, Mike, and Conar—for a wide-ranging discussion on what Aliens means to fandom, to ourselves, to science fiction as a filmic genre, to culture, and to the future. Along the way, they examine how the meaning of the film has shifted through the years.
They also perform the worst Lance Henriksen impressions you will ever hear.
Enjoy this one.
