Is that a xenomorph in your pocket or are you just happy to see us? On this week’s episode of the Hollywood Prospectus podcast, Andy and I talked about seeing Ridley Scott’s sorta-not-sorta Alien prequel, Prometheus (:55). In a spoiler-ific discussion, we addressed major themes including Michael Fassbender’s post-up game, Idris Elba’s many accents, whether it matters that the movie asks way more questions than it answers, and whether Logan Marshall-Green has any business playing a scientist.
Then we moved on to the business of Sunday-night TV, where we waved goodbye, while naked and tripping, to another season of Mad Men (18:10). Meet the new Don? Same as the old Don? Was this a meditation in an emergency or a misstep for this mighty show?
We also talked about the penultimate episode of the first season of Girls (31:48), the trailers for <and Django Unchained (37:25) and Flight (41:40), and Frank Ocean (44:28) and Superchunk’s (46:25) entries into the summer jam sweepstakes. So join us, why don’t you. With this podcast, you’re never alone.
