Ripley returns to battle an entire army of aliens in the big-budget sequel, titled—appropriately enough—Aliens.

We start off by talking about sequels that changed their franchise, then segue into sequels that ruined their franchise. We celebrate the music of the late James Horner, ponder if James Cameron was an inspiration to Ke$ha, and show how James Brief is the ultimate bachelor stereotype. In the end, we find out if Aliens stands the Test of Time.

In space, no one can hear you scream. So be grateful you’re not in space, on the run from a homicidal xenomorph that explodes out of your chest and bleeds acid.

This week, we ask the hard hitting questions about 1979's Alien. What are the drawbacks of having a mouth inside your mouth? What's the best way to choke someone with a magazine? And would "Space Truckers" have been a better title?

We also talk about our feelings on the Star Wars Episode IX release date and our hopes for Indiana Jones 5 before determining if Alien stands the Test of Time.

Dennis Quaid travels deep inside Martin Short in the 1987 movie, Innerspace.

Listen as we discuss comedies that put the "slap" in "slapstick," the pros and cons of running the projector in science class, and how a little hand-to-hand combat can go a long way. Plus our resident doctor analyzes how medically accurate this Oscar-winning (!) movie is as we find out if Innerspace stands the Test of Time.

A group of senior citizens find an extraterrestrial fountain of youth in the 1985 film, Cocoon.

In this episode, we chat about James' family connection to Brian Dennehy, Steve Guttenberg's sex appeal, and the way Wilford Brimley pronounces a certain disease. We also discuss how a sequel can tarnish the movie that preceded it as we decide if Cocoon stands the Test of Time.
