REASONS TO BE SCARED OF THE FUTURE: Skynet

REASONS103

by on November 21, 2013

So far, Rhys Darby has given us plenty of reasons to live in abject fear of crazed supercomputers and jellyfish. Surely there can’t be anything else to hold our fragile psyches in the icy grip of terror, right? Wrong. Remember Terminator? Remember Terminator 2: Judgment Day? Remember Chris Hardwick as Engineer #2 in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines? Well, that last one was just for fun. The point is, you should be scared silly by the prospect of Skynet, the military computer system designed by Cyberdyne Systems that gained self-awareness and launched an all out nuclear robot war on humanity, and Rhys is here to tell you why in a brand new episode of Reasons to be Scared of the Future!

What do you think? Are you terrified of Skynet yet? Let us know in the comments below!
