The Terminator (1984) defined gender expectations for '80s teens: men are emotionless, gun-toting, muscular machines; a woman's power was in her womb. Mother-daughter hosts Tara McNamara, Gen X, and Riley Roberts, Gen Z, discuss what makes James Cameron's first film so fresh, invigorating, and beloved while also looking at the impact it made on those who grew up in the era.
