Raconteur, Provocateur, extraordinaire!
There was something more to explore. Terminator Salvation and its sequel take place during the future war between humanity and the machines, without the time-travel element. The themes and scope are interesting enough to support these films, in theory. It isn't like snapping up Julian Grant's Robocop IV and V which were also made back to back. There are some heavy hitters in these new films. When I heard of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles I was a non-believer; after watching a few episodes I had to give it some respect. It isn't a slap-dash knock-off coasting on iconic images; they met the challenge. Of course, for those who haven't been interested since the first Terminator and it wasn't for them. . .what can I say? Plenty of Lost In Space re-runs for them.
"Terminator 2" was good. Screw "Lost in Space" reruns... don't think people who eschew 'Terminator' sequels would be contented with that TV series. I would say (original) "The Outer LImits" for them. (Back to some inspirational material. Eps: "The Man Who Was Never Born", "Soldier", and "Demon With a Glass Hand".)
