Ep. 02-28: The Terminator (1984) & T2: Judgement Day (1991)

Season Finale – The Terminator(s)

A Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) travels from 2029 to 1984 to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn), is sent to protect Sarah because he knows that her unborn son will lead the fight against the robot-apocalypse in the future. In the sequel, young John Connor (Edward Furlong), the key to civilization’s victory over the future robot uprising, is the target of a new Terminator–shape-shifting T-1000 (Robert Patrick)–sent from the future. The revamped T-800 (Schwarzenegger), has been sent back to protect the boy. As John and Sarah (Hamilton) go on the run with the T-800, the boy forms an unexpected bond with the robot.

In 1984, a young James Cameron, student of the infamous cheap and prolific Roger Corman, brought us The Terminator, a little movie that could if ever there was one. Revisit this classic with us as we discuss how Cameron, on an extremely small budget produced this wow-worthy film and enormous franchise. The sequel has even more spectacular effects, as it was a showcase of CGI following Cameron’s early test-run in The Abyss (1989). Join us for our Season 2 finale DOUBLE-FEATURE, as we discuss why both of these films are landmarks in sci-fi cinema history, despite their controversial director’s antics. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys travels to the past of a robot-apocalypse and ponders how conventions and tropes from the horror genre generated an unstoppable killer for science fiction fans all their own.
