USA’s dystopian sci-fi series Colony is officially in its third season, and the Bowmans and their allies are in a world of trouble beyond the walls of the Los Angeles bloc. In honor of the new season, we spoke with Tory Kittles and Alex Neustaedter to find out their favorite alien stories from pop culture. The list they gave us includes some self-serving picks (Colony) and films that don’t feature aliens (Blade Runner). Nonetheless, it’s a great collection of science fiction.
