??I don't think so. He spent way too much time watching that surveillance video over and over. A replicant would have watched it once. Also if he was a replicant he'd have figured it out. He was the detective after all.

it works better if he isn't
you get all that nice human vs machine stuff, the irony of the human being so downtrodden and glum and the shortlived machines being all vibrant and alive

him being a replicant is just a cheap stupid twist

The man from Del Monte says yes.

When Ridley Scott included the unicorn dream in his Director's Cut, that pretty much nailed it.

"Do androids dream of electric sheep", wasn't that the story the movie was based on? I haven't read it, but maybe it contains the answer.

"Based on" can be very loose. Silence of The Lambs, Psycho and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre were based on the same real serial killer.

he's definitely not in the book, but there is an awesome section where they f*ck with him to make him think he is

In this case based on is very loose. I'd go with no in both cases, but for entirely different reasons, with the possibility that the real answer is "it doesn't really matter".

Yes he is, based on the the director's cut of the movie.
