I disagree with Blade Runner’s placement. It’s a cautionary story, certainly, but the AI is definitely not evil. The replicants literally just wanted a fix for their heartbreakingly short lifespan and emancipation from their corporate masters. Instead the state hunts them down and summarily executes them. The replicants are easily the least evil thing about Blade Runner.

I could definitely move blade runner over for next ver. The replicants are more or less amoral, like many people. The replicants can and do kill. Self preservation is used to justify AI killing people in several stories.

ppl in the comments be like, HAL and Ava (Ex Machina) did nothing wrong.
