Daszkowski Watch it, it's very funny. Anyway, the level of nitpicking is sometimes so exaggerated that you know they are just pulling your leg (like with the ear canal observation)

BTW I beat you by 2 minutes in posting this! lol

It was dumb.

The hoodie was dumb. That was Luke Scott's fault.

Complaining about helmets and space bacteria is dumb.

Lawrence of Arabia That's a very interesting article, and if it was true it would totally debunk the premise of "The Andromeda Strain", miniseries that was produced by Ridley Scott. I don't think it can be proven though, and I wouldn't take my chances.

That's why they call it science fiction. Neil DeGrasse Tyson also agrees.

Lawrence of Arabia I don't think Alien Covenant makes the case for supporting that theory. On the contrary: it stresses the fact that there are quarantine protocols to follow. The only problem with the movie is that it is not consistent with that. I am sure the writers have no idea those science articles about bacteria exist.

The black goo/pathogen is a bioweapon, not a natural occurring organism like space bacteria. I'm sure that was the logic for the characters doing what they did (no helmets), that space bacteria isn't a big deal. They couldn't comprehend another species out in the galaxy let alone a planet contaminated, their info said it was fine. With Ridley at the helm I'm sure the writers had some inkling, maybe not about the particular articles, as he is very fascinated with biology. You're right that if they would have been more cautious it would have saved their lives but the data they had told them it was safe so they went on faith. I see Covenant as more a cautionary tale.

Lawrence of Arabia Honestly I have never been very nitpicking about the contamination issue. As for the black goo, I don't think anybody on the Covenant is aware of that at all.

I'm going to skip this one too.

It is pretty funny. Doesn't change my liking the movie.
