If you have never seen any of the movies in this series, I strongly recommend The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991). Rent or buy them, then curl up with your kitty on the couch for a snuggly movie session!

Check Yidio to see if it’s playing on any streaming channels you have. If you don’t have Yidio, you need it. It’s a free app that tells you if a movie is streaming on HBO, Netflix, FX, Starz, Amazon Prime, Hulu–ALL of ’em!

Oh, and good news Terminator fans! There is a new installment in the franchise coming to theaters in November 2019.
