Episode 637: Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

Episode 637: Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Guest Co-Hosts: Rob St. Mary, Chris Stachiw

Sci-Fi July continues with a look at Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 (2017). It’s the story of K (Ryan Gosling). He’s a replicant experiencing memories where he thinks he’s the chosen one, a product of a replicant and human pairing. Of course, that Replicant is Rachel (Sean Young) and the human is Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) which, I guess settles the whole thing about Deckard being a human or replicant... or does it?

Rob St. Mary and Chris Stachiw join Mike to discuss this ponderous sequel to Ridley Scott's 1982 original.

  1. One correction. Replicants are not robots or androids. They are genetically engineered humans. Listen to Tyrell explain to Roy why they can't live longer. Forget the book title, which was only an inspiration for the films.
