It sounds like the machine will be sent back to 1984 or something along those lines and survive/operate into the present day as opposed to being Terminated. Sounds reasonable, I hear the fan boys protest. Yes, it can be explained logically but that doesn't mean it can be excused. They were already pushing it ten+ years ago in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (horrible Terminator movie) with a clearly aged Terminator. Now they're going to push it even further here. The Terminator that real fans know is genetically and perpetually aged around its mid '30s. It likes wearing shades. It is not a retiree who put 200% effort into trying to attain 75% of the physique that has long since left him, with greying and receding hair.
Let me throw a word out there so that maybe some can appreciate the potential problem here. Dignity.
