I agree T4 was the precise moment when the franchise fell off the rails. Everything since then has been desperate and failed attempts to start a new franchise by soft-rebooting the first two films. That ship has sailed.

I got some enjoyment out of Sarah Conner Chronicles, though I don't know that the payoff was all that satisfying.
