sounds like they're gonna do Cold Forge shenanigans with mind/body transfer.

I can imagine WY deciding to kidnap an important person and just copying/transferring their mind onto a more pliable, easy to command synthetic frame.

also sounds like the basic framework of the series will be... "guy trying to uncover a conspiracy" which... is fine.

Given that I haven't read Cold Forge, wouldn't it just be easier to make an android duplicate or just an android in general rather than create a slave with extra steps?

that is NOT the plot of Cold Forge, of course. (which is wonderful and i won't spoil for you).

Just speculating on what this show could do.

Probably not final but the names suggest a more Legion orientated approach than Fargo, often that the character's names in it said something direct about what they are. Examples Cary and Kerry, Syd and Switch come to mind.

I hope he does his usual of reusing actors and we get Hamish Linklater and others such as Navid Negahban.




Both as of recently also have superb experience playing cult like leaders.

With monsters.

Bill Irwin I'd also like to see as a scientist once again. I'd advise against Amber Midthunder returning, with her being in Predator Skulls and all, but then again the late great Bill Paxton starred in both an Alien and Predator film so who knows really...

As for the whole, woman playing a man, that's in reality a woman in a man's body thing, that does not sound as completely out of nowhere for people who have read Alien The Cold Forge and have experienced Noah Hawley's Legion.

Amahl Farouk in that has had multiple actors play the part male and female, whilst still being completely a man, it's difficult to explain without watching it yourself.


In the first Season he's mainly played by Aubrey Plaza whilst she's trapped inside her body. Then onwards, he's also played by Jemaine Clement, whilst also Aubrey Plaza, whilst truly represented by Navid Negahban in the second and third seasons.



No "transition narrative" present, in any of this, but he's done this kind of thing before's really my point, and it does not make sense until you see it visually presented.

Although I am very much up for a trans narrative in Alien and think it's been a long time coming.

i'd like Noah to depict WY at their highest peak of success. Just absolute "gods among mortals". Capitalist royalty.
(that's one aspect of Prometheus i didn't mind.)

Just take it one step further than Prometheus did.....

Alternatively it's a really clumsy way of saying they want a trans character.

It does seem clumsy at first glance. I just hope there is great idea that lead to the genesis of this character's backstory and not the other way around. I hope this science expirement wasn't created because trans people will really be able to relate to this character! The point being, if you start with a desire for a character that trans people can relate to - I say, just make a trans character. Don't make it a result of an expirement.

We don't know necessarily that it is though, even if I'd be all for that as a theme, because as I said in my Legion TL;DR he's done this kinda thing once before.

True. And especially not ever watching Legion myself, I trust your perspective. :)

After being introduced to him in Midnight Mass, I would absolutely love Hamish Linklater in this! 👏

Sounds like another of this transgender bullshit, nowadays media is full of. Do we really need it in an Alien series? Can't it just be about, well, Aliens?

Give us series about W-Y's last attepmt on Lv-426 and why they actually need to clone alien in Res. Simple downfall story, no need for all this convoluted bullshit.
