EPISODE 47: Do Fanboys Dream of Electric Fords? (Blade Runner)

“The meditative quality of this meditative movie was moving.”

–Kevin

In a continuation of our return to some of the classic of Sci-Fi, and in anticipation of the sequel, the Busy Dads will finally take a look at the Ridley Scott iconic film that is BLADE RUNNER.  Kevin and George discuss why this movie is important now and why it’s important to both of them.  There is some talk of comparison to the seminal work by Philip K. Dick on which the movie is loosely based as well as talk about any expectations we have for where the universe could go in the next movie.

So, get your Replicants out of retirement and join us for Episode 47 of the Busy Dads Do Sci-Fi Podcast.  Replicants our of retirement?  That doesn’t make any sense!  If they’re retired that means they’re dead.  Oh, jeez.  I’ll never hear the end of this one.
