zombie grrlz episode 65 Sarah Connor

On this episode of the Zombie Grrlz Horror Podcast, we celebrate the return of one of the original badass woman characters of horror and sci-fi: Sarah Connor as played by Linda Hamilton. We take a look back at the evolution of Sarah from the girl next door in Terminator, to becoming an iconic action heroine in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and finally as the ultimate cyborg hunter in Terminator: Dark Fate.

We discuss what makes Sarah such a compelling, aspirational, and yet deeply tragic character. And we have a spirited debate about whether or not the series did her justice in the end.

We also touch bases on holiday shenanigans, hear from a listener who writes music about horror movies, and get the latest dispatch from Ariel’s naked neighbors. Yes, there’s more naked nonsense afoot in the Pacific Northwest!
