LAMBCAST #107: FRANCHISE LOOK-BACK: ALIEN

by

For the 107th episode, we take a step in a new direction and open up a new recurring series for the show, in which we take a look at a popular series from film history.  Over at the LAMB Forums, the participants in the show voted from a number of franchises and the winner was the Alien series.  On hand for the show was host Dylan as well as Nick, Tom, Fogs and newcomer Mark of Green People Soup.

To commemorate this somewhat special occasion, we also decided to ask all you LAMBs for articles written on the Alien series.  Thus, I present to you Alien Chops:

A couple notes:

* Due to the bandwidth issues I’ve had with Podomatic recently, I’ve gotten rid of the embeddable player that is usually included with these posts. The show can be found, of course, via iTunes – just do a search for “LAMBcast.” Also, I always post a link to the show on the LAMBcast’s Facebook page, and there’s a player there if you’d like to listen online.

* Shows will eventually make their way to the LAMBcast Archives. If you’d ever like to catch up on back episodes, go there.

The LAMBcast loves feedback, too – if you’d like yours read on a future show, leave it in the comments section at the LAMB. Please visit and like our Facebook page, and finally, we’re on iTunes, and would still love a review, even if it’s a bad one.

Thanks for listening!
