Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, and Matthew Wrather were never going to see Alien: Covenant. So they decided to do something we’ve bizarrely never done on Overthinking It before: Talk about E.T.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Let me expand on that, I’m really sad that I must skip so many episodes of OTI every summer because I plan to watch movies and you’re often a week ahead of us in the release timeline.
I didn’t plan to watch the new Alien movie, so I downloaded the episode and braced myself for discussion about a franchise I have no attachment to. Well, it’s better than no OTI, I guess.
Bam, turns out it’s E.T. episode — nice!
PS. I can’t remember, did you ever made a standalone episode on Goonies? Why not? Who do I have to PayPal to make it reality? ;)
Doing something like this—a “classic” movie instead of the latest blockbuster—occasionally is a pretty good idea. Goonies is a great suggestion.
What about the scene where Peter Coyote goes into the vents to hunt E.T. and then at the last minute his gun is just a walkie-talkie
I seem to remember Reese’s Pieces playing a large role in the video game. Those were in the movie too. I’m surprised you didn’t mention it.
Also a few years ago they found and dug up that landfill with hundreds of ET cartridges and sold them on ebay.
