Looks like I'll be rewatching Blade Runner this weekend. I'm shocked that Drew liked the movie. I'm not shocked that Drew didn't like the score.

I'm as shocked as you, Nick. It's been continually rising in my estimation, too, since we recorded that episode.

He means the score, of course, Nick. He loves it now. I heard he just ordered a Vangelis t-shirt.

I'm not even joking, but yes, I've been warming up to the scor.e

Confession. I have not listened to this episode yet because I have yet to see this film. As a self-professed Harrison Ford (read: Han Sorlo) fan, this admission is deeply embarrassing. I hope and plan to attend a screening in the near future, followed shortly by listening to this episode.

If you're anything like me you'll:
Hate it. Think it's okay. Like it. Love it.
In that order.
