  1. Disappointing ratings for the Ridley Scott icon “Alien” (1979) on 7mate, hopefully they can get the promotions out there and get fans aware, running a marathon over successive weeks as TVT also posted.

    Even its lead-in movie the umpteenth “Men In Black” re-run made Top 20 multi-channels and did well!?

    • Has to be said that ‘Alien’ has been on many, many times over the years including recently and is not a film improved by many ad breaks-better to watch it on the box sets-also one of the very rare films to feature a director and cast commentary that’s actually worth hearing.

      • Recently? The last “Alien” film (Alien 3) was on FTA on Wednesday April 27 2016 on SBS 2, over 3 years ago. 10 ran them in late 2000s, that would be even longer.
