Terminator: The S. Connor Chronicles

Anyone else catch this? I'm actually pretty darn impressed with it. My only fear is that it's on Fox and Fox is known for dumping shows before they have a chance to prove themselves. Let's hope the ratings come through.

I get to see River from Firefly again, too. And I think the woman playing Sarah Connor was the wife of Leonidas in "300." Cool so far. Just seem like a well-rounded, fun time. I wasn't expecting much, so I was pleasantly surprised.

Re: Terminator: The S. Connor Chronicles

I wasn't expecting much either but so far it seems like an okay show. Not a lot of interesting stuff has happened yet but maybe that is yet to come. I will get bored with it if the show is just full of fight scenes with cyborgs.

Re: Terminator: The S. Connor Chronicles

Especially when Summer Glau is one of the cyborgs! That girl makes fight scenes look like ballet.

Re: Terminator: The S. Connor Chronicles

I'm really digging this show so far. I immediately recognized Sarah as the actress from 300, which is great. She can definitely play a strong, no-nonsense woman and still be hot at the same time.

Summer as the new Terminator is cool, especially since they haven't revealed many details on what model she is, how she can heal so quickly, etc. ... Since the series takes place between T2 and T3, I doubt we'll see Kristanna Loken show up as another T-X, but with a time travel episode, you never know. Anything is possible, especially since they didn't continue Painkiller Jane (dammit).

I agree. It was interesting when Sarah asked her, "so, will these guys (the freedom fighters who came back in time) know you?"

And she said, "They know me," but with a very strange tone. I'm thinking she's a bad-ass from the future, but also one that is capable of the most empathy? She seems to be picking up on human nuances more than the others so far (i.e. squeezing John's hand when he seemed down.) The nurturing/female bot, but utterly hardcore and ready to kick butt.

Re: Terminator: The S. Connor Chronicles

I'm guessing she was a new experimental model made to appear more human and programmed to emulate human behavior, but something went "wrong" and she started to empathize with the humans and went rogue.

Re: Terminator: The S. Connor Chronicles

I saw it. I think its decent so far. I'm not really jumping up and down or anything, but it has promise. I do like the fact that it eliminated the third movie from ever happening (cause I thought it was a weak follow-on to T2) and they took things in a different direction shortly after T2.
