Ok, I'm ashamed to admit that I've never seen "Blade Runner". If that's the reference they were going for, it went over my head. Didn't hurt the episode at all. The last part was really cool and shows how cool Stan's character can be when he has some action motivation.

But man, the idea of the episode in general is an odd one. The concept of the Rapture coming just for Stan's greatest desire to be the status quo is an odd one. And I very much appreciate the Golden Turd making a return...but why would Roger be so fascinated by it? It's HIS turd!

Good stuff, but can't beat AD's earlier efforts this season.

Blade Runner wasn't the reference they were going for, as that's more of a dystopian future than post-apocalyptic. Looking around the web, I see the episode being linked to John Carpenter's "Escape from New York" which is at least more in line with the setting even if I didn't notice any specific callbacks to that particular movie.

Kim noted last night that the soundtrack was very Carpenter-esque.

I picked up a bit of a Stan doing Ash from Army of Darkness vibe - especially during the shooting flying demons from the back of Jesus' motorbike scene and also the missing hand stuff. Did Snake Pliskin have both hands? Been a few years since I've watched that - need to trot it out again.

My favourite part was when Stan was complaining the 'fake Christians' filling up the church at Christmas time proclaiming he's a better Christian because he performs drive by baptisms with Holy water in a super soaker when going past Hebrew schools.

I drive past a Jewish school every morning on the way to work. How have I never thought of this? I wonder how hard it is to get a litre or two of Holy water?

Easily best episode of the 4 tonight, even though you knew there was going to have to be some sort of reset at the end. I did chuckle that in Stan's deepest desire Klaus was dead.

Also enjoyed the return of Roger's poo and the usual cinematic effect accompanying it.

Yeah I'm out of the new show too. Will Arnet gave it the "oh, this'll be kinda cool to see" feel. As for Kilmer. No movie roles for him recently probably because his body has gone the same direction as Steven Seagal's has.
