The Terminator - Supplement

While we try to cover as much as we can in our episodes, there's always more to see, hear, and read about a movie that can enhance your viewing experience. If you enjoyed our episode on The Terminator, here's a few extra bits you might find interesting...



Episode 93: The Terminator


The debates around James Cameron's debut film had waged for decades, but the ultimate discussion would not be conducted in the future. It would be held here, in this episode... tonight. Kyle returns to the show as we take aim at the original 1984 classic, The Terminator. Listen as we ponder the circular logic of time travel paradoxes, consider how modern abuses of artificial intelligence may lead to humanity's eventual downfall, and speculate about what to expect from Terminator: Dark Fate (we recorded this episode back in August before the film opened). Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and robots in meat suits.
