The ATTeam were on their way to record a podcast about video games this week (honest), but a neutrino surge somehow knocked their ship off course and they picked up a distress signal, and long story short it's films again. Join Chella and Drew as they explore the uncharted planet of Alien: Covenant, removing the helmets of uncertainty, wantonly kicking the fungus of knowledge, stopping to pee in the woods of enlightenment, and blowing up the shuttle of... cinematography appreciation(?).
This extra-value episode is as packed with content as John Hurt's chest was packed with Xenomorph, and also contains discussion of Alien 3, Alien: Resurrection and Prometheus - everyone's three favourite Alien films - at no extra charge.
Listen up as Drew and Chella review Alien Covenant and then rank it among the whole Alien franchise (excluding AvP). Where do they rank it and do you agree?
You’re on a bus browsing Twitter on your phone when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a notification, there's a new episode of Argue the Toss. You reach down, you hit the icon for your preferred podcast player. The episode sits there in the list, its progress bar at 0%, desperately fighting to be played, but it can’t, not without your pressing Play. But you’re not pressing Play. Why is that? Is it because this Voight-Kampff blurb conceit ran out of steam about three sentences ago?
This week Chella and Drew have travelled to the far-flung future of 2049 to watch the trailer for Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to the original Blade Runner, which takes place in the far-flung future of two years from now. They return with deep and well-considered opinions, and also a sports almanac I'm not supposed to tell anybody about.
Note: Apologies for technical issues on this episode. We are working to fix this for future casts.
