    Too bad

    Looks like several other shows hit the chopping block in the last couple days including Samantha Who and Without a Trace.

    Even getting to watch Summer every week wasn't enough to keep me interested.

    Glad Dollhouse was saved though. It started getting really good in the middle of the season, and has turned out to be great fun after a slow start.

    With Terminator ending, maybe Summer can join other Whedon favs (Felicia Day has an episode coming up) on Doll.

    Re: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

    Fans of T:TSCC are trying to get another network, such as the WB or the Sci-Fi channel, to pick up the show, or to get direct-to-DVD movies of the show made, but those hopes are highly unlikely to be realized.

    On January 6th 2008, producer John Middleton had the following to say about the movie: "It's post-apocalyptic. It's set after the events of [Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines], where we see the nuclear exchange at the end of the movie, and we show what the world is like after this event, and we show how people try to deal in a post-apocalyptic world. And we introduce a new character, who becomes very important to the resistance and to John Connor, a new hero. It's really about the birth of a new hero."

    About John Conner, he said: "I would look at him as a character that is introduced and that will grow in the second and third movies of the trilogy."

    On Arnold Schwarzenegger's involvement in the film: "He has been approached, and in the early days of our development of T4, one of our producers, Andy Vajna, who's a good friend of his, spoke to him about doing a cameo. This was even before he was governor. But we know now that he is governor, he's got priorities that are above doing movies."

    PLOT

    In this new installment of The Terminator film franchise, set in post-apocalyptic 2018, Christian Bale stars as John Connor, the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators.

    But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past.

    As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet's operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.

    WE SAY

    To be honest we weren’t all that excited when a fourth Terminator movie was announced. And when it emerged that Arnie will only have a small cameo in it (if at all!) and that it will be directed by the pretentiously named McG whose credentials include the brainless Charlie’s Angels movies we just rolled our eyes and gave up on the whole affair.

    After all, when one is honest about it, the three Terminator movies made thus far are basically the same movie made over and over again: an artificial intelligence from a future in which mankind is battling for its survival against said machines sends an unstoppable killing machine back in time to kill the man who will lead the human resistance before he is born or just a boy.

    But it seems the future has finally arrived . . .

    When it became apparent that Terminator 4 won’t be rehashing that whole plot again (after all, how can they after the ending of Terminator 3 – Rise of the Machines?) and that it will be largely set in the post-apocalyptic landscape in which humanity is pitted in a desperate battle for survival only glimpsed in the various movies we perked up. When they cast new action god Christian Bale (Batman in The Dark Knight) we really started paying attention. Hey, this new Terminator flick just might be worth checking out after all . . .

    And then came that teaser trailer . . .

    So: consider us excited. Terminator Salvation as the fourth movie is now officially titled just might be a worthy entry in the franchise, one that might even equal any of Jim Cameron’s entries (come on! did you see that trailer?). Or will at least be better than the tired rehash that was Rise of the Machines . . .
    I took my 16 year old son, Jason, to see T4 yesterday. On the movie thread here I gave the film a "B" at best. While Christian Bale was good, Sam Worthington stole every scene that he was in. Worthington plays a cyborg who at first doesn't realize that he is part machine.
    There are numerous contrasts between this latest film version of the "Terminator" saga and the T:TSCC TV series. As you would expect, the special effects in the film are vastly better in T4 than anything in T:TSCC, and the film is packed with action while the TV series too often was slow and "talky."
    However, the TV series, with the benefit of 31 separate episodes, had much better character development. I found myself not particularly caring as to what happened to the characters in T4, whereas even the lesser characters in T:TSCC were memorable.
