Welcome Team TermiNerd!

It is time for our first community activity. Our goal is to specialize in rampant plot theorizing, examination of show mysteries, and to geek out over terminator technology. We need you to help us make a list for discussion, and to participate of course!

This will serve as our seaon 1 contest: for every post you create which predicts something happening in Season 1, you’ll get recognition in the Season 1 awards. For every incorrect post (which will be most), you get an atomic wedgie. The stakes are high here people!

We at TermiNerd would like to pontificate that we want to keep a positive perspective. The purpose of discussing these things is to have fun, make friends, get our geek on, make me feel important for hosting a busy blog, predict the future, and of course, influence the writers who know where the biggest fan site is.

Please submit your Mysteries, Theories, and Technobabble topics for discussion. We’ll start tackling them. Continue reading
