We love Summer Glau – and hey we even tolerated her as a Terminator..

but in The Cape she’s the only decent bit of a really terrible show..and her bit isn’t even any good either.

What a total waste of time – easily the worst show we’ve seen all year so far.

Dollhouse Season 2 Episode 5 & 6: The best two episodes of Dollhouse EVER Summer Glau rocks! December 5, 2009

Dollhouse is Back (well until it gets cancelled) – and its back with a BANG!!

So Rossum Corp turned one of its dollhouses against the other in a plot to ensure that the dollhouse itself is never exposed.

Amazing.

Topher and Topher as a doll – FUNNY

Summer Glau as the D.C version of Topher – ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT..Summer was awesome.

The complexity of plot in this two episode set was astounding with layer within layer and multiple sub-plot texts underneath. We know have seen our second dollhouse, we’ve now seen that Topher is really nuts..and we know more about Echo/Caroline than we’ve ever known before.

So where does Dollhouse go from here?

Well at some point Ballard will bring the Dollhouse down. At some point Caroline will help him and somewhere along the way Doc Sanders/Whisky and Alpha will return

Though we’re not fans of Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles – we are HUGE fans of Summer Glau. She’s the reason why we bother SCC at all and is its most interesting character.

Summer was one of our favorite shows last night – The Big Bang Theory – 

She was on the train that the guys were taking and they each tried to work up the courage to talk to her. Koothrappali drank then talked with her..Leonard didn’t quite make it .. and Wolowitz got his phone smashed by the Terminator.

A little lame…but still great fun. I’m surpised Sheldon didn’t go and talk with her…or maybe have Penny talk to her on the phone…but hey as cameo’s go it was ok.

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.

Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles 2×04 Cameron is Allison Young September 29, 2008

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.

We’re still a couple of months away – but FOX is already out with a pair of awesome looking promo trailers for Season 2 of Sarah Connor Chronicles.

First thing that you’ll notice is that Cameron (the foxy terminator) is apparently turning on John. Not a big surprise is it? (or is it just another copy sent from the future?)

Two promos in total –

HURRAY! FOX didn’t frak this one up.

Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles has now been officially confirmed for second season of at least 13 episodes.

No official word yet on when season 2 will start, but I’d assume that since the order just came today we’re probably looking at September at the earliest at this point.

It’s Monday and for the first time in weeks – we don’t have a Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles episode.

We don’t know if Sarah is coming back after the ‘season finale’. We don’t know if there will be a Season 2.

We the fans cannot allow FOX to kill yet another fine SciFi show (they killed Firefly and should never be allowed to kill another).

It’s time to let FOX know how you feel. Write them at askfox@fox.com

Subject: Save Sarah Connor Chronicles !

The fight to save the future has just begun – we want Season 2!

WOW what a great episode.

Action

Plot development

and real touching moment drama too (with the young Reese brothers)

This is a show that has gotten better with each and every episode. The T-888 is out there building Skynet, Cromartie is hunter the Connors (and blowing up the FBI), Cameron is hiding something and so is Derek Reese. (and what was up with that other chik from the ‘hood’??).

This CAN’T BE THE LAST EPISODE FOX!! RENEW SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES FOR SEASON 2 !!!

The War to Save (Mankind and the) Sarah Connor Chronicles begins now!

Nice. We get a rehash of more Terminator 2 stuff with a new Dr. Silverman (this one isn’t nearly a neurotic).

Did Sarah actually save the FBI agent? That sure was some ‘weird’ cinematography there wasn’t it?

And Cameron?? Man oh  man is she one scary Terminator …now she’s a ballerina too.

All told yet another really solid episode of Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles. Our only complaint is that next week is the season finale?! How does that happen??? Since when does episodes make a season? I know we had the writers strike to deal with but still..8 episodes is NOT A FULL SEASON!

Kyle Reese had a brother.

NEAT.

Sarah gets back together with her former boyfriend the medic.

VERY NEAT.

Sarah does the pullup thing that Linda Hamilton did so very effectively in T2 (while in the mental facility) – that wasn’t so cool. Lena Headey just isn’t as buff.

Summer Glau’s Terminator continues her cardboard performance..though she at least had a funny line in this episode. Sarah calls shotgun (for the front of the jeep) and Cameron call ‘9 millimeter’.

All told a solid episode though that will help to add even more plot complexity to this show.

Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles 1×4 Golem February 4, 2008

The concept of the Golem of Prague is an ancient and well known story.

The way the writers brilliantly wove that ancient tale’s basic premise into this episode, gives me great hope that this series has a fantastic writing team behind it (#hope they settle the strike soon!!#).

Then again, episode 1×3 was officially called ‘The Turk’ which is of course another ‘old’ story that the writers were able to weave in…I wonder how many more they were able to find…

Again we’ve got what looks to be a recurring theme with various ‘others’ coming from the future – in his case yet another Terminator – to do something in the past that will help the outcome in the future.

The continuing theme with the FBI agent that is overlooked and ‘laughed at’ is a bit cliched but hey it does serve its purpose.

Then of course there is John.

John Connor the great Savior of humanity – no longer interested in running – but interested in making a difference now. Brilliant.

Summer Glau’s ‘Cameron’ Terminator is still just a cardboard cutout..and it would be really great to see her Terminator evolve into something more animated as this series continues.

Which Terminator Model is the Best? January 24, 2008

Awesome article up on Popular Mechanics this month breaking down all the various Terminator models from the first T-800 model up to the unknown model in Sarah Connor Chronicles (Summer Glau’s ‘Cameron).

Easily the most awesome in my view is the T-1000 (the one made of liquid metal in Terminator 2). That robot could change its shape and was the first to do so.

After that it’s all just about strength which is  difficult to measure and then intelligence and personality. Which is where Cameron fits in ..sure she’s strong but she was specifically designed for a purpose..and we’ll find out as the series goes on what that purpose really is all about.

Alrighty the pilot is out of the way so now we’re into the regular stuff and so far it’s not that great, though it did have some neat plot developments.

In the pilot Summer Glau (Cameron)’s Terminator was a believable teen – hey she fooled John Connor and he’s trained to locate Terminators. In this episode she was rigid, robotic and entirely unbelievable as a normal teen.

Oh and what was with that girl that sat next to John in science class? (before Cameron came in) ..she clearly knew John ..she’s gotta be a resistance fighter from the future or something.

The resistance fighters subplot is really a great idea and clearly they’ve been sent back from the future to hunt down skynet themselves. Who built Skynet is the big question in this show..unlike T2 and T3 there is a question in Sarah Connor Chronicles.

OHH and with all the hype behind this series FOX is already dropping the ball – an hour after the show FOX still didn’t have a listing for the episode up on the show’s website. Compare that with Stargate Atlantis for example where each week’s episode is listed the week before – to give the fans something to look forward to and a name for the episode. I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope FOX is planning on stranding us the way they stranded Firefly.

Terminator : Sarah Connor Chronicles Pilot Part 2 – how long can this go on for? January 15, 2008

Alright after the euphoria of seeing a new Terminator the second part of the pilot was a bit of a let down.

Sure since the first Terminator we know that Terminators keep coming back, again and again and again.

In this series it looks like there will be multiple Terminators coming at the Connors. While that may make sense in a way..in others its annoying. The Terminator that was blasted in the Bank vault in 1999 should have been toast.

The missing dad syndrome for John is interesting and i’m sure that we’ll see plenty more of that in the future.

Again the fact that the Summer Glau Terminator takes orders from no one in the present is somewhat annoying.

But the fact that we’ve got freedom fighters from the future coming back in time too makes this even more complex.

Still, week after week, wave after wave of Terminator coming against the Connors – it’s going to be a really tough sell to keep this show fresh.
