LAMBCAST #389 HARRISON FORD DRAFT

by Jay Cluitt · September 1, 2017 · Draft, Featured, LAMBcast, Podcasts · 4 Comments

Blade Runner 2049 is just a few weeks away at this point and, whilst there’s sadly no room in the Lambcast schedule for a show devoted to it, we can partially celebrate it in another way, by holding a draft on the original film’s star, Harrison Ford. So grab your whip, your blaster and your commemorative Firewall pickaxe, we’ve got some drafting to do!

Jay was joined by draft veterans David and Richard, as well as newbies to the format Heather and Aaron to take a walk through Ford’s incredible career. The teams and voting poll are at the bottom of this post, but be sure to listen first, it’s a very fun show.

Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a game of Last Lamb Standing.

  1. David Brook says:

    Thanks for posting the original Return of the Jedi palace song, it’s been ages since I’ve seen that version. It’s not great, but it’s a hell of a lot better than the terrible ‘Jedi Rocks’ sequence added in for the re-release!

  2. As much as I love Blade Runner, American Graffiti, Jay’s Team just edges it for me.

  3. Very close between Jay and Heather…had to go with Jay. This draft is defined by the last 3 picks (and also by not taking Crystal Skull – sorry, David), and I think both Frantic and What Lies beneath don’t get enough play in Ford’s filmography.
