EPISODE TITLE

This weeks episode title is dedicated to the cast and crew of Top Boy. Top Boy seasons are a little confusing, but let me break it down for you. If you're watching on Netflix you'll see Top Boy as Season 1 & 2, but if you're looking on IMDB, you will see four seasons of Top Boy. The reason for this is the original seasons have been retitled Top Boy: Summer House (2 seasons), also on Netflix in NZ. They're a little older. Then Drake, yes the rapper, came along and was like, bruv. I've got the P's, let's get this back on the air. So in some places it's considered a soft reboot, but it's actually a continuation of the story. Look, just watch Summer House and then Top Boy. Thank me later, bruv.

We're doing something a little different from the "usual agenda" here on the Half Measures Podcast. We're taking a look at the original four Alien movies, that's right marines, we're taking you back to 1979 where it all began:

  • Alien 3 (1992) | Directed by David Fincher
  • Alien: Resurrection (1997) | Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet 

Before listening to this weeks episode we highly recommend re-watching these classic action, horror, thriller movies. There's something in there for everyone. And if you enjoyed that, this episode pairs nicely with episode 073 of the Half Measures podcast where we also deep dive into the Alien prequals - Prometheus and Covenant.
