I definitely agree. Such an interesting troupe of actors: Charles Dutton, Charles Dance, and Paul McGann.

I didn't mind their deaths in Alien 3, but the execution/reasoning was akin to a ceiling tile randomly dislodging and killing a major character. The shoehorning of a egg and facehugger into the...

Rome and Spartacus for sure. Spartacus has a bumpier start but roars once it's started. Rome is slower at first rather than bumpier, but fantastic. I watched the entirety of season 2 in 2 sittings.

Ignoring everything else he's saying. The Queen is designed as he would have done it, and is frightfully animated. The designs are also 'beautiful.'

That's your opinion, but I don't see your point. What I mean is: I'm not convinced. If you want to get a cargo full of eggs, it's better to have a Queen pumping them out like a machine. Anyway, if...
