“The Sarah Connor Chronicles” kicks ass.

I just got done watching the pilot episode for The Sarah Connor Chronicles which is a direct continuation of the Terminator movies picking up after the end of the second movie. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be available yet, but there’s a copy of it available on the DivX website which I stumbled across so I watched it.

This was another series I had my doubts about, but after watching the first episode I’m totally geeked for it to start up on January 13, 2008. They definitely didn’t spare any expense in the production of the pilot and it got the blood flowing. Best of all it co-stars Summer Glau who played River Tam in another FOX sci-fi series, Firefly, which was canceled before it ever had a chance to get off the ground. Here’s hoping this series gets a proper chance to establish itself because Summer’s playing another bad-ass character that’s a lot of fun to watch in action. I won’t spoil it by revealing her role, but if you really want to know then go watch it before someone takes the video down.

Considering what a disappointment the third terminator movie was, and I’m not feeling to warm and fuzzy about the pending fourth one, it’s heartening to see that the TV series looks to make up for it. Good stuff. Can’t wait for it to hit the airwaves.

  1. After Futurama, Angel and Firefly, I feel reluctanct to get emotionally invested in any really good show on Fox.

  2. Don’t forget about Arrested Development and Wonderfalls (from the guy who’s now doing “Pushing Up Daisies”).  Fox is notorious in my book for giving really good shows a chance—and then canceling them in spite of their brilliance.

  3. Still, I loved the first two movies, the only ‘true’ movies in the series.  I’ll probably watch it.

    (Politely ignoring the third movie as one might ignore a friend’s loud fart in church)

  4. Julian, I am just as concerned as you are about the cancel factor. However, I am hoping FOX has learned it’s lesson by now (not expecting).  Or, SCI FI picks it up right away when FOX knocks it to the floor.  I wonder why FOX picks this good stuff up only to throw it away just as quickly.

    DOF, lol, “fart in church.”

  5. I agree with the above. After Futurama, Arrested Development and the multiple cancelings of Family Guy, I don’t bother watching any new series on Fox.
