Paradox: The Time Travel Podcast

Episode 5: Terminator: Genisys

Finally, we’ve come to the smoking hot nuke-from-orbit of time travel that is Terminator: Genisys.

Concluding our look at the (absolutely ridiculous, paradox-ridden time travel disaster that is the) Terminator franchise, we’re diving into Terminator: Genisys — the Terminator movie that completely nukes the entire Terminator timeline and all its rules, then makes up entirely new ones.

If you haven’t seen the film, you might be a bit lost, and you will absolutely be spoiled. Listen at your own risk!

Also, check out this Entertainment Weekly article that does a good job of running down the Terminator time travel conundrum, with theories of its own.
