Neat idea for a thread. I've expanded my contribution, however. Here's pretty much a 360 view of my entire place.
1/2 of my desk which includes computer, WWE action figures, and seaQuest DSV ship model.
The bridge of the Enterprise-D.
The entrance; desk, Super Mario Galaxy poster, seaQuest DSV poster. Bob Barker/Richard Dawson/Alex Trebek autographs.
1/2 of my desk including 32" LCD screen, DVR, DVD player, VCR, NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Wii, Donkey Kong Bongos, every WrestleMania event, Mario Kart Wii flag (that I stole from work), more WWE action figures.
Bed, bathtub (how convenient, I can just wake up and roll into the tub ), Monday Night RAW/Super Mario Bros. 3 posters, autographs of the seaQuest 2032 cast as well as William Shatner/Leonard Nimoy/DeForest Kelley.
My living area; a couple of couches, lamp, various seaQuest/WWE shirts on the wall.
I don't want these podcasts to start sounding like every other review that you read; which is to say, have some clear-cut ranking system on how good the episode is. So, with that in mind, I'm just going to point out what I, personally, liked in the episode, what I didn't like, any pieces of behind the scenes trivia I know about, and ultimately tell you if I think it's worth seeing.
These won't be rehearsed or anything, I'm just shooting on all of these. If I took the trouble to rehearse it, I might as well just type it out and post it like anything else, so, you might hear a little bit of pausing and whatnot while I segue from one topic to the next.
And, with Adam's assistance, we're adding in some music and quotes from the episode, so, hopefully they'll prove to be popular.
While "Terminator 4" is well-intentioned I'm sure (read: milking the cash cow), "T3" (while I did enjoy it) pretty much butchered everything the Cameron films established anyway; to the point that it's unfeasible for a film to try and explain away all these inconsistencies, while still pulling itself away from itself to tell a good story.
Consider if you will, the whole main philosophy from "The Terminator" films was "there is no fate but what we make for ourselves", you've got Arnold's character blatantly stating in T3 "Judgment Day is inevitable." Hmm, sounds like fate to me.
Ignoring the glaring discontinuities between T2 and T3, the most recent film irrevocably damaged the "Terminator Timeline", I believe. It is established in the Cameron films that Judgment Day occurred in 1997. Since it didn't happen until 2004 in T3, why would the events that set the original "Terminator" film in motion take place in the first place? What if Kyle Reese had been originally born in, say 2000, in the "original Terminator timeline." With the "T3 timeline", that would have never happened; Reese wouldn't have been set back in time because:
a) he wouldn't have been born
b) neither would John Connor, which pretty much eliminates the original timeline completely, essentially, making the first two films worthless.
Unless you want to consider T3 and anything that follows to be a sort of "what-if?" type of scenario (which I personally don't), I think it's best to let "The Terminator" franchise remain dormant.
