Same Make. Same Model. New Mission.
We’re back! In Week Two of Terminator Month, we kidnap Joe Preti of the View from the Gutters podcast, and force him to help us break into Cyberdyne Systems headquarters. Our mission this time, to dive into the biggest Arnold Schwarzenegger blockbuster of all time: Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
A decade later, another more advanced Terminator has arrived from the future to kill a now-ten year-old John Connor. But like before, it didn’t come alone. The human resistance has reprogrammed an older model, identical to the one that failed to kill his mother in 1984. Its new mission: to protect young John at all costs.

Oh, yeah! Totally agree with just about everything you guys said about the movie. In particular, I so agree about Linda Hamilton, who was so awesomely badass but who also put in such an amazing performance as an actress. Also, I liked that you all noted Dyson’s often overlooked act of heroism. Great episode all around.
I have to say, though, that I think the franchise should have ended here, and in fact I’ve never seen, nor have ever had any interest in seeing, the remaining installments or even that TV series about Sara Conner. To me Terminator and Judgement Day are a perfect binary that needs nothing more.
I am, however, quite interested in hearing your thoughts in the upcoming shows on the remaining T-movies.
