Episode #237: Adam from ACToyDesign Returns to Talk About the Terminator Films Part 2: Salvation, Genisys
This week wraps up the second of our two part series reflecting on the rest of the Terminator films, the first being episode 160 with Adam from ACToyDesign and the IG account @mom_gave_them_away, who coincidentally returns to discuss the rest of the films.
We had a little side conversation about character actors (sparked by the presence of Michael Ironsides in Terminator 4). Character actor Tim Thomerson was in both these classic films (both written by Rocketeer writers Paul De Meo and Danny Bilson)
We also referenced the Blade Runner films when discussing the Terminator who doesn’t know he’s a hybrid human / hybrid Terminator in Terminator: Salvation – check out episode 200 of the show for a retrospective of both Blade Runner films.
After watching all these films (I watched them in order), are you confused? There are some good articles and videos out there that explain the timeline(s). Check out this one that explains 3 parallel time lines of sorts.
By the way, the ending that I recalled in Terminator 2 where Sarah Connor is sitting by a park watching her now adult son playing with his daughter in a playground turned out to be an alternate ending, as Adams suspected. You can watch it here:
Obviously, had this been part of the original T2 theatrical release, it would have messed up the timeline even more!
