Nerds Assemble 138: Blade Runner

This week we discuss Ridley Scott’s 1982 classic sci-fi film: Blade Runner.

Please join Emily, Paul, Paul and Paul as they talk about rewatching the Final Cut version of Blade Runner.

We discussed a lot this episode, including: Just what is it about this 33 year old film that keeps us coming back to it again and again? Why is it such a cornerstone of sci-fi on screen? Is Deckard really a, y’know?

Nerds Assemble episode 42: reality is closer to SF than you realise

This week: Doctor Who, E.T., Hugh Jackman, the future and more.

Join Emily, Paul and Paul (Cookie is away this week) as they discuss:

We spend the last part of the show discussing part of a recent article by Christian Cantrell, titled: “The Future Isn’t What It Used To Be”. During the debate, where we managed to miss mentioning the democratisation of production (3D printers), we also bring up the attempts by Jim Logan to pursue legal action against podcasters based on a patent he owns.

Nerds Assemble episode 29: Facing down the telly apocalypse

This week: mystified accounts of a visit to Yo! Sushi, more Wii U ponderings AND… just where the heck has all the genre telly gone?

Join Emily, Paul and Paul (no Cookie this week, he’ll be back next week), as they gasp and point at some of the week’s hottest news (and go meandering off a tangent cliff):

We spend the final part of this episode discussing how the recession and the internet have affected what’s on our televisions when it comes to sci-fi and fantasy genre shows on the 5 main UK channels, and we grumble a lot about Sky and reminisce about the good ol’ days of BBC 2 on a weekday at 6pm.
