I agree with nameless 1 id go see a darker predator film where maybe only a child survives. All main characters are killed. Even will settle for a draw where pred is bested but main hero dies from the nuke. Especially at ground zero cough cough Dutch?!!

Like I mentioned in the episode, that's one of the things I like about If It Bleeds - Predators actually survive. And it's also a disappointment I had with Hunters, I was hoping for a recurring Predator baddy. It wasn't enough to ruin the series for me, though.

One of the AVP comics had a pretty good draw, where both the main Predator and main Human's parties were killed fighting each other, but the two teamed up to fight a PredAlien.

Very true. And that Predator ends up coming out of that draw on top as we find out in War.

Nice review!

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Regarding some stuff that was mentioned in the podcast...

I sort of waffle back and forth between the team up idea.  On one hand, it has the potential to easily end up being a cheeze-fest.  However, if done well, it could add so much to the story and open up a lot of possibilities.  I like the way it was done in Lebbon's trilogy.  It was reluctant, and believable.  It kept with the traditional portrayal of Predators and how they behave, fight, etc.  I would even be excited to see an emissary-type or "police"-type figure participate in a team-up without it being reluctant.  It'd just have to ensure that the Predators remain in character.  Keep their separate psychology, their way of thinking distinct from ours. 

I also wish we'd get some recurring Predator characters in the main Predator series. I know it's been mentioned in other threads that it'd be hard to have the whole human cast killed off in a movie and still keep the audience's sympathy... but a comic would probably be the best medium to experiment with that type of storyline.  Makes me think I should pick up If It Bleeds.  If only I had more time  :'(

Ya other than the new game announcement, the Predator side of things has been too quiet for my liking.
