Are Xenomorphs a Bad Weapon? (Feat. Mr Sunday Movies)

In which our heroes crash land on an alien planet, splash around in some black goo, and end up host to a parasitic alien as we ask if xenomorphs a good weapon? We attempt to decipher Prometheus, wonder what would happen if a facehugger impregnated a xenomorph, and explore the almost certain possibility of the existence of space gorillas. Zammit likens xenomorphs to pandas, James is amazed that xenomorphs happened twice, and Jackson just wants to talk about his Mogwai/Xenomorph theory. So avoid touching any mysterious eggs, don’t pet the snake alien, avoid thinking too hard about Prometheus, and try to figure out what the hell is going on. We’re not in space, so everyone can hear you scream.

Plumbing the Death Star

In which we ask the important questions in pop culture and dissect fictional universes. Because seriously, who deals with super weapon sanitation and imperial employee agreements?
