Tonight in DVR: Alien! Just in Time for Valentine’s!

Sigourney Weaver

Stop everything, Alien is on IFC tonight! And we’re aware it’s Valentine’s Day–so what if our take on love privileges enormous man-eating aliens over schmoopy special episodes on broadcast TV? This is Sigourney Weaver’s kickoff to a series that started great, got great, then–whatever, who cares… It’s characterized by lady-fighting action that Angelina Jolie can only watch enviously as well as a broody, foreboding tone, and we can hardly wait to save it for Saturday afternoon (why stay up late watching and give ourselves nightmares)?

Set your DVR for IFC at 8pm.
