Terminator Timeline

Now that Terminator Salvation is in theaters, Cracked has attempted to create a timeline that explains how the various time-travel plots work. Some things to remember:

1. Time travel in a Terminator movie is like plumbing in a porno: a very loose excuse to get to the action.
2. Anyone expecting accuracy is missing the point (and having much less fun than everyone else).
3. With that said, here is our attempt to construct a sensible time line of the franchise.

Note: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is not included in this project. Link -via Digg

Good thing from the first movie they introduced the idea of time travel, allowing them to throw out the window a trivial concept like continuity.

Doesn't include the Terminator attraction in Universal Studios Florida which is considered by James Cameron to be part of the line. Not sure how it would fit though as Skynet is destroyed in that one. Hmm.

Need fast cash? make a new timeline!
