Sol and Allen are joined by Calvin Dyson, Judey Bignell and Chris Hunter to ring in the new year (or, to put it more accurately, ring out the old one). Also, there's a music quiz. All in all, it's bloody good listening.

We're continuing our Alien season, in anticipation of Alien: Covenant, by taking a look at the somewhat less acclaimed Alien vs. Predator spin-off series made up of AVP: Alien vs. Predator and AVPR: Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem - two of the most stupidly titled films ever made.
Chat includes the likes of the original quadrilogy, Prometheus and Batman for some reason - and, as always, we pitch our own ideas for Alien vs. Predator 3.

If you're enjoying Alien season, be sure to come back next week for the thrilling conclusion!
