If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Thought - The new Alien/not Alien movies would have been great TV

The trouble with the Prometheus and covenant is that, if you believe that Scott actually has an interesting story to tell, its taking too long to tell it. I mean if you think that each movie is a little more a piece of the pie that will eventually be a much larger universe then they make sense...but people don’t got patience for that kinda stuff. They want a complete arcing 3 act meal at the movies...a tight trilogy at most.

You know were people do have the patience to be jerked around by a story for years? TV. Think about if Prometheus was just Season one of a TV series and Covenant was season 2...there is a good 5 or 6 seasons of material in there and no one would be that mad about it not featuring enough alien or too much David or whatever. It would be all “have you seen Alien on netflix?” “I can’t wait until nest season.”

it wouldn’t have the budget of the movies and there would be anoying little sub arcs but on the whole...am I wrong?
