Thirty-five years ago, then up-and-coming film director Ridley Scott took a Philip J. Dick novel about a police officer hunting rogue androids in the future and gave the world “Blade Runner.” While the dystopian sci-fi film polarized critics and audiences in 1982, over the years it became a highly influential cult classic – a cult classic that has inspired a sequel from director Denis Villenuve, “Blade Runner 2049.” In this episode, the SSN Crew discusses both “Blade Runner” films, the high number of alternate versions for the 1982 original and its thematic adaptation of the concepts of human slavers, racism and more.
