That’s the buzz…the show that started off so brilliantly but in season two has been mostly pure garbage is headed to the trash heap of scifi history.

We’re not surprised – no one should be. Sure some people liked the show this season but the ratings sucked.

We did like the last few episodes, the death of Riley, Derek Reese and the finale with John going back to the future...but it was a case of too little too late.

The show for the most part was — let’s be honest here – boring.

Episodes were poorly acted and produced with long periods of brooding nothingness. That’s not entertainment that’s just lazy writing.

The show had great potential and we were very keen on it in the beginning. Cameron is an interesting Terminator and she had so much potential that was largely unexplored. Derek Reese another fine character…

No this wasn’t Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor,and that was a major flaw from day one.

That and oh yeah – The FRAKKIN writers let us down.

Luckily for Terminator fans the glory days of Terminator are soon here. Terminator 4 : Terminator Salvation might be the best Terminator yet as we finally get to see the true John Connor hero of the resistance at long last.

As for the unfinished storyline of Sarah Connor Chronicles…well i suppose there is always the direct to DVD route and if that fails, hey books would work here too.

Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles : Season 2 Finale, Series Finale? John Connor makes it to the future April 10, 2009

Let’s hope this was the final episode for Sarah Connor Chronicles.

John Connor finally makes it into the future…but a new future where his isn’t the hero…a future where Cameron is just a girl, and Kyle and Derek Reese both still live.

Weaver is a new type of Terminator trying to stop SkyNet and help save humanity with John Henry..

Yeaaah it’s all a little bit of a stretch…but this is the kinda of solid action that made this show attractive in the first place. If this is the final episode because FOX cancels the show..at least this show will have gone out with a bang.

We’re not fans of Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles – but we were fans of Derek Reese. He was the best male character in the series, a fine actor and just fun to watch.

As of Friday’s show Adam Raised a Cain

Derek Reese, brother of Kyle, uncle to John is Dead. He literally walked into the gun of a Terminator who shot him in the head dead. Quick, sudden and brutal. There was little lament, little grief..

After all the big thing in this episode was the CAPTURE OF SARAH CONNOR!

Yes this show often moves to slow, but now wow…alot of activity in a very short period of time.

Can this show survive without Derek Reese? Sure..but it won’t be as good.

the only character this show could not survive without is Cameron (Summer Glau) beyond that they can all get shot …well i suppose John Conner the weenie is supposed to survive but he’s so lame we still keep hoping he gets toasted too.

Riley was a cool chik and it was dumb for her to be killed.

Just goes to show how idiotic the producers of this show are.

Would have been neat to see that Riley John Connor thing play out a little more but naaah the producers of this shoddy program want to make ultra sure that the program SUCKS.

It was neat to see Cameron fix her arm though – reminiscent of Arnie fixing his arm in the first Terminator.

terminatorUmmm WTF was that episode about? Desert Cantos

Could this show get any more useless/pathetic?

Sure it’s great to have parallel plot lines but thing just don’t add up at all here the warehouse in the desert business is just …well what is it? Then there is the H/K flying prototype thing – which was kinda cool but how come none of our cast of character said a word???

Why didn’t the HK kill them?

If you missed the episode you can get it here (Desert Cantos
) but fair warning if you want to try and understand you really need to watch it more than once…that is if you care to watch it at all.

Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles : Kyle Reese is a Ghost? February 13, 2009

First episode back and whamo there is Kyle Reese.

But not the cool Kyle Reese from Terminator 1 – no this was some frakking lamer.

Was he a dream? Was he Sarah’s subconscious? who knows…the way the show was written it’s totally confused about it anyways.

It was neat to see Enterprise’s Trip though – gotta love cameo’s from the genre actors and the fact that the doctor shot him sure was a shock.

Ohhh and John Henry? He’s one freaky robot…

Kyle Reese Returns to Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles January 13, 2009

MADNESS. The first Terminator movie was sheer brilliance – and the key to it was Kyle Reese…the father of John Connor. He has to die in order for the future to happen and for John to be born.

Right?

Maybe not.

The blasphemous monstrosity that is Sarah Connor Chronicles is about to further ruin the Terminator mythos by bringing Kyle Reese back in the episode titled the Good Wound airing Feb 13th on Fox.

If you loved the original Terminator – this is probably now the right time to totally bail out on this show. If you like the show – this is probably the kind of twist that will keep you interested.

Sarah Connor Chronicles – Season 2 mid-season finale was TERRIBLE December 15, 2008

What the frak was that? Ok sure we said last week that Sarah Connor Chronicles was a bad show but, this was the mid-season finale this week. Some early buzz said it would be a neat episode.

Yeaah neat to see a Skynet machine (what was it an HK?) from the future but again..this show is so poorly constructed from a proper dramatic narrative flow viewpoint it’s not funny.

Instead of focusing on the ‘ship’ we see Sarah’s face for most of the time..instead of action or dialogue even this show focusses on ‘dramatic pauses of nothingness’.

There are some fine actors in this show – LET THEM ACT. As it is this show is difficult to watch and impossible to follow.

It’s in the same timeslot at Big Bang Theory – which this week by the way was a great episode…and funny in a good way.

sarahconnorOk it’s official as far as we’re concerned. Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles sucks.

Tonight’s episode was total garbage. There was more dead air (and not the shooting kind) than dialogue or actual action.

The show was so bad to be honest we could NOT watch it end to end -we watched much of it in PIP window while watching The Big Bang Theory – and switching to see when something looked like it might be happening.

It’s a darn shame – we really had high hopes for this show in the beginning – the new season looked like it good be a good one too – but it’s not. I’ts just a waste of time at this point and I doubt we’ll bother to watch another live episode again – much easier to record and then fast forward through the garbage….which is most of the show.

Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles – T-888 1920’s style December 1, 2008

So the T-888 was hidden in a wall waiting for 80 years to shoot someone.

NEAT.

This was a great episode for Cameron – maybe her best yet. She’s a methodical killing machine – with a gun or with research. It was a really interesting treat to see how Cameron noticed the terminator in the past and pieced all the threads together to figure out where he was in the present.

Now as for John Conner – he’s still a mega wimp – and a lame acting job overall. Every episode i’m hoping he’ll get whacked or better yet shaken up so he becomes a more likeable character.

I did not see that one coming.

Riley is from the future – go figure.

Then again – John Connor so far has been a mega whiney BEAATCH so why would any woman want to be with him unless it was her mission? kinda makes sense but still a real nice surprise and the first great plot twist so far this year.

Ohh and Cromartie is back – but now he’s John Henry – the future SkyNet.

The overall pacing in this show is wrong — it’s deadly boring in parts and then you get the big plot twists – it sure could use some better editing and overall production direction to create a tighter pacing.

Still, the show progresses and it’s progress (slowly) but nicely isn’t it?

 Last week Cromartie got shot up and buried. But he didn’t get burned to a crisp.

So he’s BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCK.

(yeah i know – some of you told me so – ok you’re right).

Agent Ellison has unwittingly become the architect for the rise of the machines now that Cromartie’s remains have been retrieved. Just like how the hand in Terminator 2 led to skynet – now it’s Cromartie’s turn.

The whole time paradox thing with Fischer was also really quite neat, albeit a little confusing. We haven’t heard or seen the ‘greys’ before have we?

That was idiotic.

Well let’s recap – the various stories (Sarah’s, John’s Cameron’s etc) in this episode were well crafted and a nice plot vehicle

The way Cromartie died was lame.

You mean to tell me that the FBI with more gunners couldn’t take him out but two people in a mexican Church crossfire could?

That’s just dumb. Sure you have to suspend belief for a show like this – but PAAALEASE have it someone logical.

Cromartie was the first Terminator of this series and now he’s gone. Does that mean there are no more terminators hunting the connors in the current era? Not likely. But it does take out the big threat.

Finally Cromartie narrows in on John..but hey WHAT KIND OF MASSIVE WIMP!!

Cromartie comes to the door and John sends Riley out to deal with him – while he hides behind the door. Riley easily could have been killed without a second thought while john was wimping out.

And what about the RAZOR – killing poor Moishe? And will she stay with the show for awhile (i hope so..)

Then what’s the deal with Agent Ellisons’s T-777 clone?

I dunno – but the show is getting more intricate as the week’s go on. Finally next week we’ll see another Terminator showdown…the teaser says someone will die – let’s hope it’s John Connor and that another John Connor twin/clone T-777 or otherwise takes his place.

Not bad…we meet yet another T-888 killing machine and yet another key figure from the future.
The best parts of the Sarah Connor Chronicles in my view are the flash forward glimpses of the future. John does a little growing up in this episode and isn’t the whiny beaatch that he’s been the previous four episodes.

That said – where was Cameron? why wasn’t she out there protecting John too?

Overall the worst part of this show – and this series so far this season – is the lack of flow and momentum. The shows are often so moody and plodding that the hour the show is on seems more like 2 hours.

If this show is to survive – it really needs to pick up the pace. A lot.

Interesting episode – we get our first real insight into Cameron (Summer Glau- who had a real life before as a human called Allison Young. Allison also knew John Conner which makes the “I love you” comment to John earlier this season even more interesting.

Why Cameron had this flashback episode – who knows but makes for some great backstory. Makes sense that Skynet would base its infiltrators on real humans.

Now what about Shirley Manson character – a T1000 – having a daughter! What’s up with that? Is she also a machine?

The best part of this episode? NOT MUCH WHINING FROM JOHN CONNOR!! He’s such a wimp!

This show continues to get worse week after week. The acting is deplorably bad and the pacing is all wrong.

John Conner is a total wimp. The Cameron character – in this episode was week. Charlie (who looses his wife in this episode)..COME ON..i’ve seen better acting from cardboard.

And what!!! Terminators can’t swim? really?

Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 2 premiere – this doesn’t look good.. September 8, 2008

Just finishing watching the season two premiere of Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles and we’ve got some mixed feelings. The show tried to be all high flying action packed but it fails on many levels that ultimately will make it inaccessible to the consumer masses that Fox is targeting this show at.

The beginning intro with the ‘sampson and deliliah’ soundtrack in the background was too long on the song and too sharp on the scene cutoffs. If you had never seen Sarah Connor Chronicles before you would completely lost. Of course we’re fans here..so there was a little knowledge we had ..most of it from the season one finale from back in March.

Cameron going bad – ok that was neat…but John Connor saving her in the end and letting her live was lame. Magically she repairs the damage? where was the internal conflict?

And the Cromartie thing? COME ON. The FBI would have known that that body they found had been dead for some time and was not killed in the recent action.

Now the only redeaming scene in the whole show was the final scene where our new Terminator (Shirley Manson) reveals herself as a T1000 model that was just about to be urinated on…that was funny.

A few more Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles are now making the rounds. We blogged about the first set back in July.

Fox sure seems to be doing things right with the second season. New characters, more action and more drama and best of all they’re hyping the show – which is a good omen for ratings.
