In now-legendary director James Cameron's (Avatar) 1984 sci-fi classic, The Terminator, Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor, the mother of the future leader of the resistance against the machines that would eventually seek to wipe out humanity, was a classic damsel in distress, relying heavily on Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) to save her from the Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger). Seven years later, when Hamilton reprised the role in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, the demur waitress was replaced with a hardened combat veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder and killer biceps.

On today's Hollywood Uncensored, Sam Rubin discusses "tough" versus "dainty" female roles with Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff and Breaking Bad's Betsy Brandt.
