EP. 500.0 — Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Amy & Paul go back in time to save 1991’s blockbuster James Cameron action sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day! They praise Cameron’s control of both CGI and practical effects, find parallels to Oppenheimer in the film’s depiction of a devastating scientific breakthrough, and ask why Linda Hamilton didn’t get an Oscar for her portrayal of Sarah Connor. Plus: Danny Cooksey, the ultimate 90’s best friend.


Next week, Paul & Amy are talking about Wayne’s World! You can join the conversation on Paul’s Discord at https://discord.gg/ZwtygZGTa6. Check out this week’s spotlight episode from the Unspooled archives, Titanic: https://www.earwolf.com/episode/titanic/.
