It’s the episode you’ve all been waiting for… In Episode 260 of Movie Podcast Weekly, you get to hear Karl’s review of Blade Runner 2049 (2017)! Unfortunately, Andy’s missed this show and Ryan was unable to join us due to his harvest duties, but we are joined by special guest William Rowan Jr. (of The Sci-Fi Podcast and the forthcoming Movie Moments podcast!). (However, Andy, Ryan and even Mack Robins still make a brief appearance on this episode from an earlier recording.) We also talk about the original “Blade Runner” (1982) and its many versions. Warning: Spoilers for the 1982 storyline. Join us!
