    Re: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

    Here's an interesting blog article that brings up some of the issues that I had with the show.

    Why did they wimpify Sarah Connor?

    Summer Glau is great as a killing machine, but not so great when she's pretending to be a normal girl at first. So if it's true that future episodes will feature her character going to school with John and trying to act normal, that could be an issue. Thomas Dekker, as John Connor, has a bit of a mouth-breathing issue.
    I want the drama to fit better into the storyline and not just be an excuse for another shoot-em-up scene between the robots. The hiding-out aspect of the story feels a little too much like the hiding-out aspect of Heroes, especially since the actor playing John Connor looks so much like Claire's boyfriend West from this season of Heroes.

    Summer Glau in the bar fight scene in Serenity. The later against the Reavers. woof, she kicks ass.

    My favorite scene was the robbery, when she's pointing out the guy going for his gun.

    I miss firefly.

    ...and actually is Claire's video-shooting friend Zach from the first season of Heroes.

    Wow, I'm usually good at picking up those crossovers, but I missed that one. He looks taller than he did on Heroes.

    FOX is crowing about the premiere numbers for Terminator: TSCC. Apparently it is the biggest premiere of the year with 34 million viewers. I'm sure the NFL playoff lead-in helped.

    There was a drop-off on Monday night -- but that's to be expected.

    I'd have kept the show Sundays, personally. Fox used to rule on Sunday nights when the Simpsons didn't suck and the X-Files still had David Duchovny.

    Remember Married With Children? That used to be another vital cog of their Sunday night line-up.

    Re: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

    I watch very little TV network prime time offerings, but my wife and I both enjoyed the Sunday premiere, and I liked Monday's episode too. I agree that the production values appear to be close to that of the films (I have never seen T3).
    I hope the show is a success.....and yes, Summer Glau is nice.
    By the way, I agree with Krono-I was underwhelmed by "Revenge of the Sith."

    I think a lot of people are coming to the realization that there aren't going to be any more episodes of their favorite shows for at least the rest of the winter. That's the main reason I sampled this show. I probably wouldn't have tuned in at all if I wasn't looking for a new series to watch.

    In case you missed this show and are interested in picking it up, the pilot episode is now a free download on iTunes.

    Re: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

    Watched episodes 2 and 3 tonight. I'm really enjoying this so far. Main thing though is how much this show makes me miss Firefly.

    But if Terminator Summer/River is all I can get, I'll take it.

    I liked her character in Firefly/Serenity infinitely more than her terminator.

    But that's a tough standard to judge against. She was magnificent as River.

    I can't figure out where they're planning on taking her Terminateen character -- in the pilot, I thought they were hinting at something about her model that was more human. She was better at 'blending in' initially (in the scene at Connor's high school in the pilot) and she also took food to eat.

    Now, they've gone back to the whole "robot doesn't fit in with human interaction" stuff from T2. That particular plot-thread is not only tired (having been done before in the movies), but it also doesn't match up with what we already know about her character (that she was able to do the high school thing no problem).

    I liked the idea that there was a new quirk to her model -- I hope they haven't abandoned that.

    I agree--in the pilot he more or less appeared to be "human" when she at the high school. A re-hash of T2 isn't the wa to go.
