    Rottentomatoes certainly disagrees with you as well, Krono.

    I'd watch Summer Glau read the phone book.

    If people here haven't seen Firefly/Serenity, go out and get them.

    Firefly is proof that the American public is made up mostly of idiots. 14 episodes + 1 film isn't nearly enough.

    Ugh. T3 was utter garbage. Unfortunately I've had to take Rotten Tomatoes' ratings with a grain of salt since Revenge of the Sith managed an 80%. I mean, I know we all wanted it to be good, but lets be honest...

    Looks like the events of T3 are being completely retconned out of existence by this show. Due to the "time jump" plotline, the John Connor character skipped over the events that would've taken place at that time. No Kate Brewster, no hiding in the mountain.

    Not to be confused with anything simple, though, in tonight's episode, they did reference that, had the timeline remained intact, Sarah Connor would have died of cancer in 2005 -- which was what T3 had established.

    Re: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

    By the by, I liked the first episode of SCC. I've got the 2nd one saved on my DVR to watch sometime this week.
    I loved the bank scene.

    Wow, you're way of on that one too, IMO.

    Revenge of the Sith was on par with the original trilogy IMO. Totally salvaged the subpar episodes I and II.

    That makes me wonder... will Sarah Connor now die of cancer in 2012 or whatever it would be moving the timeframe forward? Will the cancer still gestate and manifest itself on the same timeframe, now shifted?

    Unfortunately, Summer looked a bit "enchanced" in the first episode, and not due to CGI if you catch my meaning.

    Agreed, although I'd blame the networks' poor handling of these shows over anything else. CBS cancelled "Jericho" although it's been revived for a short additional run. NBC cancelled "Journeyman". Basically, regardless of how good a show is, the networks will indiscriminately judge based on a poor rating system regardless of any other factors.

    What kills good television shows, IMHO, is dumb studio execs who can't figure out that a great story has to play out over time in order to attract viewers. Instead, they want instant results that can pull the best advertising dollars without consideration to how they slot anything. Slot something against a juggernaut and get poor viewing results, and that show is dead. Stupid. Instead, they need to be conceding that time slot and position the offering where it'll actually resonate. A moron could figure out what TV studio executives can't. Start small, build a following, and then move the show to a prime slot. Instead, those folks only seem interested in backing "boom or bust" options that either take a longer time to gain interest or that can't possibly take their time slot due to the competition.

    It's insane. Set up a good show that's destined to lose and then claim that you cancelled it when you already knew the competition was likely to trounce it. Heck, there are some network time slots that might be better served by offering infomercials. The gameplan should be to put the best shows in the weakest slots. That's the way to win a war. But gosh darn it, network television isn't the least bit interested in doing that. And it gets a lot of good offerings killed that could survive if given a different venue.

    Yeah, I feel better about my choice now

    T3 was utterly awful, IMO
