    Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles returns with a solidly enjoyable action-oriented outing.
  2. The transformations aren't complete by episode's end--though at least Dekker chops off his floppy Emo bangs--but it's a step in the right direction for a series that struggled to live up to its potential and pedigree last spring.
  3. My interest ebbs and flows depending not on the plot but on which character is in the action.

    As the series continues to complicate the relations among past, present, and future, Ellison’s part in any of them is increasingly difficult to frame.

The action sequences were never lacking; Cameron is awesome! Side-stories and flashbacks were interesting rather than just adding to character development. The plot came together well with time, and the finale blew me away. Other than a few episodes, I found this season well paced. Expand

I'm not a fan of killing off key characters (Cameron, Derek) but I was pleasantly surprised they are reworking the timeline to give the actors a chance to give their characters some more dimension. The plot twists are good, by the second to last episode aired I didn't know who to trust anymore, then bam! Great show, hopefully the new Terminator film will increase interest in this series. FOX DO NOT CANCEL THIS ONE!!!!! Expand

Great characters, intriquing This is a fantastic show, and it is a crime that Fox cancel yet another show just when it starts to get good. Great characters, intriquing plot (hasn't all been good, but you still want to find out where it was leading to) and good special effects for a TV show. Whoever made the decision to cancel it should be fired and only be able to get work as a sewage worker. Expand

That being said, this show deals with many science fiction themes - and many more personal, humanistic themes - responsibly and thoughtfully for a major network television show. Like any long running series, there are a few misses in writing and acting, but overall this show was about as good as any scifi/action television show gets! Expand
