    I didn't even think there was any doubt about him being an android in 3? His heads stoved in and he barely flinches. It seems pretty obvious to me he's an android sent to trick her.
    But again, the white blood thing exists pretty much purely as a device to signpost who is an android. Very very odd decision not to give him white blood, if he is indeed one.

    Maybe they ran of cream or whatever by then.

    Nah I've only heard of this Alien 3 Bishop android thing since Alien Vs Predator came out. It's probably more to do with Paul WS Anderson not realising Lance Henrikson was in Alien 3 and then declaring himself that Fincher's was an android.

    I think Bishop is an android in 3. Have always thought so, since seeing it quite young. Just seemed obvious, but willing to accept other theories.

    I always took it as being a fairly bleak, but ultimately positive way of ending Ripley's story, by reinforcing that although drastic, she was right to sacrifice herself as they shouldn't trust the company

    Lance is lactose intolerant I heard.

    I just googled the question and apparently in the script it actually says he's human, which would seem to clear that one up.

    I don't know, I got the info secondhand from posts on a forum, hence me saying "apparently".

    And really it doesn't matter what he says, his movie has no relevance to the original three alien series.
    I know, I'm not saying Anderson is right but just think that's where the Alien 3 Bishop Android rumours probably came from. Frankly I'm happy to discard anything AVP from the series, so he's human to me.

    More to the point, why did no one else pick up Khanivor's howler about Godfather Part II?

    He and Cerberus both lost face today...

    Ah the irony. We cast out cerberus just before we needed him most.

    I think we can put that one down to one of the many examples of Alien 3 being shit.
  • Deleted user 17 March 2014 17:12:54
    The ear thing aside, I think Tarick's point about his general behaviour is more relevant. All the androids in the series are very robotic and emotionless, whereas he's extremely human in the way he reacts.

    I just checked the script - pretty much confirms it:

    AARON
    You fucking Droid --!!

    And smashes Bishop II in the head.
    Bishop II writhes on the floor. The troops fire on Aaron, shoot him down.
    Bishop II turns.
    No wires.
    No milk.
    Real blood.
    BISHOP II
    I am not a DROIDDDDDDD!!!!

    Note how there's no confusion or arguments about what happens in the original Alien, just its inferior sequels...

    I always assumed he was a more advanced android.

    like a PS4 to a Wii U. They do the same thing, but you would only send one down a mine.

    Nah I got that from the used Alien 3: Final Draft script by Walter Hill & David Giler. The page indentations didn't seem to show in the quote box for some reason.
