Processor Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles

Do you guys watch Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles on FOX? I started watching this show a couple weeks ago and an hooked. I've always liked sci-fi, and even the first two Terminator movies, but didn't expect to like this show nearly this well. By far the best new show this year.

So how many of you guys watch it... if not you gotta try it.

Edit: Oops forgot to add a link just incase you Euros don't know what I'm talking about.

It's here on TV for us Euro's too .

I don't mind the show, most people hate it from the looks of it. There are only 9 episodes AFAIK, and FOX is deciding it's fate.

It's FOX, they killed firefly which is 500x better than Terminator, so they got no chance

While we already have two other Terminator TSCC threads, I need to ask: we're only getting 9 episodes of this? This is one of the better shows I've seen in a while, now there's a chance they're going to kill it?

Say it ain't so...

There were supposed to be 12 episodes, but the writer's strike happened. There is a confirmation of season 2. http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNew...0303/20080303/

But like baron said, this is FOX we're talking about.

So are we going to get those last 3 episodes of Season 1? I haven't seen any of the episodes from 7 - 9 yet, I don't know how they ended 9, if they rounded it off due to the writer's strike, or if they left it open for the next 3 episodes to finish the season...

But if FOX cancels this one, I'm going to be really pissed.

Love this show. Summer Glau as the Terminator on John's side is great. She is so good at it and her character development has been handled superbly. I'm not sure a second season has been confirmed. As mentioned, Firefly was supposed to be great, but they killed it before it could get a foothold.

SirBaron, why do people hate this show? Where have you seen this? it is sitting at 74 on metacritic. though, critics often say things are **** that people love and like things people ignore.

Actually, I read somewhere in a recent TIMES magazine that the show is a mega-hit.

It's not as bad as I thought it would be. It's not great, but it's good enough if you've got an hour to waste.

I'm a bit surprised how good the show is. The acting for the most part is excellent.

What really strikes me is how much of the story line is taken from the first 2 movies. It just proves how great the first 2 movies really are and how strong the story line is. Some of the concepts and events don't make much sense, but I don't really care the show is still pretty damn good.

You can re watch eps, at FOX.com. Usually next day or day after.

Or find them other places

I didn't get to watch the finale, but I'm hooked on the show. Good to hear it's confirmed for season 2

The people who dislike the show probably work for abc, nbc, cbs and try to make us tune into their **** at 8PM.

Oh and if any show should be cancelled, it should be America's Most Wanted.

I'll just say this, if FOX cancels Terminator I'm not gonna watch anything on that channel for a long time. They have a horrible habit of axing great shows before their time (Futurama anyone?) and this one would be the final straw.

Last episode was pretty good I thought. The sequence where they played the Johnny Cash song fit in perfectly. Also, I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, but the scene right before the Johnny Cash one was pretty cool too.

I thought the acting from Sarah Connor was really bad. Sort of the type of acting that is mass-produced, very forumulaic. There are some good actors on the show, but the fact that the main actors aren't very good makes the whole show feel a bit cheap.

The John Connor guy is also a bit sucky, acting-wise. It's sad the protector terminatrix has the best acting performance out of the three main characters.

Like 12Bass says, critical thinking and the scientific method are probably the best tools we have to avoid it. (bias)

However, this method relies on repeatable, falsifiable hypotheses and theories. Only an extremely small spectrum of time and space can be rendered into these, or at least a good approximation of such.

I like the show, its no Dexter but it is pretty watchable once you've seen a few. One thing that bugs me greatly is the opening monologue where Lena Headey talks about Skynet being programmed to destroy the world and sending one machine to protect John Connor. Call me anal but according to the films it became self aware, seeing humans as a threat and the rebels sent the machines to protect john. Man I am a geek

I think the show is painfully corny, but watchable. I don't think the whole hottie terminator thing is working in their favor though. I keep watching it, so they must be doing something right.
