Episode 13: The Characters of Aliens, Part II – Ellen Ripley


Mykal returns from his Weyland-Yutani ore mining gig in the Outer Rim to join Dave and Ryan as they talk about one of the most iconic characters in film history, Ellen Ripley.  The crew discuss what they love most about Ripley, the incredible writing that went into her character, Sigourney Weaver’s brilliant performance, and the impact Ripley has had on all female action heroines who have followed her over the last few decades.  They also talk about if she should be brought back for another Aliens film, and how the franchise moves on from its most indelible character.  As always, thank you so much for your listenership.  We can’t say enough how much we appreciate it.  Take care and stay frosty!
