Episode 3: ALIEN³ (1992)

You’ve crash-landed on a futuristic ore refinery and penal colony based on outdated ideas of genetic destiny and find that two British men are talking to you about David Fincher’s first feature film, ALIEN³. Simon and Jim discuss the film’s unfortunate scripting issues, the troubled pre-production process, and how this exemplifies the Alien franchise’s identity crisis.
