** James Cameron was contractually obligated to give ''T2'' to Orion to option, but the filmmaker's asking price was so high that the studio had no choice but to pass. It is a fact that Cameron, Schwarzenegger, and producer Gale Anne Hurd despised Orion's treatment on the first film (although it was a hit), that the high asking price was deliberate so they wouldn't have to work with the studio again. If the situation was different, Orion might have released both films.

*** Yeah, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint none of their projects involve AI]]. Although, apparently the Cyberdyne name isn't meant to be a reference (They work in CYBERnetics, and dyne is a suffix meaning power. Doesn't explain the HAL 5's name, though)

* TheProductionCurse: More legally cursed than anything. See the ChannelHop trope above? That occurred because the production companies (and a couple of the distributors) kept folding [[SequelGap before the next sequel could be made]]. We'll see if SkyDance can stay in business long enough to get a ''Genisys'' sequel out the door.

* SequelGap: 7, 12, 6, and another 6 years between installments. If one wants to count [[Ride/Terminator23DBattleAcrossTime T2 3-D]] as a formal entry, it becomes an eerily regular 7, 5, 7, 6, 6. So, see you in 2020?

* WordOfSaintPaul: The novelizations of the first two films were written by a close personal friend of James Cameron, who had also contributed rough ideas to the concept. Some of the details revealed in the novels are confirmed true in later films, in creator interviews, or in other works--for example, the series of Terminator that is after Sarah. It is never called a T-800 in ''any'' film, but the novel refers to it as a Series 800.
