The Sarah Connor Chronicles

With most anything Sci-Fi television related in the Donaldson house, it usually involves me scurrying off to another room to watch it. But tonight Denise and I both watched "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" on FOX and we both really enjoyed it! Call it Terminator 2.5, but the story takes place a few years after the events of Terminator 2 with Sarah and John still on the run from the future. Good writing, decent casting and well paced story for TV. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend you check it out! Good thing we got the DVR so I can record next weeks show while I'm out of town.

we saw it too. Not a bad show. Cool thing is it has "River" from Firefly.

I liked the show with two exceptions. First, the high-school terminator looks like she's 30.

Second, I could live without the creators of the show trying to give the terminators a personality. I'd rather they used the sledgehammer diplomacy that I grew accustomed to in T1 and T2. The Chick terminator was way to "human" in her first day interactions with John Connor.

That being said, the moving ahead 8 years will be interesting to watch. How old is John supposed to be now? 16?

Andy, I'm on this one too... DVR'd it on a whim just to see what "River" would be like in it, and I was very satisfied... Catching tonight's second episode via DVR tonight too. Hope fox doesn't cancel this one too early like they did with Firefly...
