As usual, HISHE has graced us with a silly, scathing and common-sense analysis of how a movie franchise was so full of plot holes so big, you could drive a truck through them! And in this installment, they tackle the ongoing (and worsening) Terminator series. Lucky for all of us this franchise is getting a reboot, because the last two movies really did a number on its credibility!
And doing a little crossover with Back to the Future, they pretty much tackled the central premise which emerged with the ongoing Terminator movies. Why send killing machines back in time to epochs that are closer and closer to the future in question? Why not go back in time to when they were a toddler and still toilet training? You could catch them while they’re on the potty instead of all grown up and qualified to use firearms!
Enjoy the clip!

Thanks so much for posting this! The films do not portray our terminator history in a positive light, and I love that this clip mocks the entire series!
I just had to reblog! Too funny!
Reblogged this on Ripley Connor and commented:

Hilarious! But the last I heard, the filmmakers were “starting from scratch”. That doesn’t mean they’re doing a remake.
Remake, reboot, relaunch. Potato, po-tat-o, roots and tubers. It’s all michegas!
You mean meshuggas, right?
That’s the one! I wanted to talk about that, but I lost the article when I switched computers. Is it still considered current?
Meshuggas? Yes, it’s current. At least as a pop culture term used by characters doing the Jewish stereotype, but yeah, it’s current. Besides, I use it.
No, I mean the news about the new Terminator movie. And yes, it’ll be current so long as Big Bang Theory and anything involving Seth Green and Tod MacFarlane is still on the air.
Last I heard, they’re still looking for a writer for a new script, one that’ll “start from scratch”, whatever that means.
Pick me! Pick me! I know a bit about the franchise and I don’t cost that much!
Send them a resume…if you can find them.
