Alone in the Dark (2005) (part 7 of 8)

Krash reports that her readings are off the scale, which, in her words, is “unprecedented”. Er, no it’s not, Krash. Every reading you get is off the scale. Why don’t you go buy a bigger scale? Oh, right, I forgot, you’re not allowed outside.

Krash says something else, but it’s drowned out by helicopter noise. Someone tell the audio guy that there are such things as volume controls! Burke informs Tara and Carnby that this is the highest concentration of xenos they’ve ever seen, and a chance to end the whole thing once and for all. Mighty convenient, wouldn’t you say?

Burke gets a standard military report from one of his soldiers, then pulls Military Leader Cliché Line #63c out of his bottomless box: “I don’t care what you have to do, get more bodies down here, now! Look at this place, we need more!” He then chews out a guy named Turner for not getting a generator running. No idea what the point of that is.
