** The Theatrical Cut isn't ''bad'', persay; its just inferior to the Director's/Final cut in fans' minds. The Theatrical Cut has some significant ExecutiveMeddling, including the voiceovers being forced in and a recut ending, and it was actually savaged by critics on release. While it survived as a CultClassic, the release of the rough "working cut" (the pre ExecutiveMeddling version) was seen as fair superior, which led to the superior Director's Cut. The Final Cu is basically a GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion, with slightly improved special effects and editing mistakes fixed.

* The biggest headscratcher about this film is why people insist that you see the Ultimate Final No This Time I Really Mean It Director's Cut in order to fully get how incredible and influential it is. After all, the original theatrical cut has to have been the one that influenced everyone and if that cut is shit and the Special Ultra Awesome Edition is the good version then that doesn't make any sense.

*** Because they're not designing a replicant to retire other artificial lifeforms gone rogue. They've designed a replicant that you would ''give dangerous jobs to'', and in spite of these, expect it to perform amicably, expect it to overcome the odds and obstacles. As Gaff said himself: "You've done a man's job!"

** This is a world where Bryant can force Deckard our of retirement by saying, "You know the score, pal. You're not cop, you're little people!" It's possible that nobody but the police would interfere with a shooting, because the police themselves are not to be messed with and won't tolerate interference.

*** Also, replicants only begin to SOMETIMES develop emotions towards the END of their lives. Any evidence of their inhumanity they witness before that likely is not stored in their long-term memories because it is utterly uninteresting. So the memories only need to fool them for a few months.

* The public at large are unaware of the escaped replicants. Ok, sure, but why the hell does no one seem to care when Deckard guns one down in the street? Forgive me if I'm misremembering, but nobody seems to notice the armed man chasing down a half naked woman, shooting her three times, and sending her through four planes of glass. A few people examine her body, but nobody attempts to apprehend Deckard before he reveals his profession to the police.

** The memory implants are not intended to fool everyone around the replicant into thinking it's a human, they're only intended to fool the replicant so that it will behave more like a human (and therefore be more predictable and controllable). With only a four-year lifespan its entirely possible the replicant won't find out or be convinced of the truth before it dies and you buy a new one to replace it.

*** Deckard has to chase Zhora through crowds of people in downtown L.A., but other parts of the city at other times are nearly empty, like the Bradbury building, where J.F. is the only resident. The movie doesn't really show enough of the world to determine if it's overpopulated or underpopulated.
