- #098: New York Comic Con 2017, Blade Runner 2049

By | October 11, 2017 at 2:30 PM

So New York Comic Con happened last weekend, and we’re still getting over it. The Geek Girl Riot ladies were there in full force, so today they’re doing what they do best: Talking all about how amazing it was. Hear Sherin, Day, Renee, and Cindy share their favorite panels and cosplays, the best NYCC finds, and that time they walked into a bar and ran into a few American Gods

But before we get into NYCC, we’re heading to the year 2049 to talk Blade Runner. The new film Blade Runner 2049 has just graced our screens, and the nearly three hour film gave Sherin and Alex a whole lot to talk about…even without telling you about the plot for fear of being retired. (We’re not saying Warner Bros. have Blade Runners of their own, but we’re gonna stay on the safe side and keep this spoiler free.)

If you haven’t heard, Geek Girl Riot is now on idobi Radio, in a new timeslot! Tune in every Tuesday at 11pm ET / 8pm PT for your dose of late-night geekery from our team of rioters. For now, see below for some pics and more of our NYCC coverage, our full Blade Runner review, and a list of shows the Rioters chatted about this week.
