There's always a bigger spider

Post by Khailovesthispodcast »

When I was watching the scene with the giant spider trying to get in through the cockpit windscreen, I got a very strong Jurassic Park T. rex attacks the jeep vibe. Homage or coincidence?

To me it felt more of an homage to the mynock attack in The Empire Strikes Back, with the orifice flattening against the viewport like that.

Yeah, I like that it managed to evoke concept art, Mynocks, Rathtars, and even the somehow the Wampa, while not being explicitly any of those.

That is one great thing about the show is it so often evokes rather than rips off. It's a subtle difference, but here it works.
